But some other things I looked for included a fun corporate culture, a product that I believed in, a good office location, and a great employee experience. Finally, eloomi popped up, and I was ecstatic when I found out I’d be joining my fellow eloominizers!
As an Australian living in Denmark, I knew that at some point I’d need to go home for different events. As I hadn’t spent Christmas with my family for 3 years, I promised them I would be there.
When you start a new job, you want to fully immerse yourself straight away to become a part of the fabric of the organisation. I was a little nervous about asking for some time off so soon into my time at eloomi, but I asked if I could work remotely for some of my time in Melbourne. Thankfully, since eloomi embraces a modern, flexible work policy, my manager was open to the opportunity!
The New Workplace Reality
I belong in the Gen Y demographic, commonly known as the ‘millennials’, but also sometimes known as the ‘entitled’ or ‘self-obsessed’ generation. I beg to differ, but I could be a little biased…
One thing I do know for sure about our generation is that along with Generation Z, we are transforming the reality of workplaces around the world. This includes a more agile workforce, technology-based business processes and more flexible work, to name a few. These sorts of transformations in the workplace indicate a more modern type of shareholder view. This is where the focus shifts from being purely shareholder based, to a focus that recognises the forward-thinking reality that organisations need to spend more time thinking of their people. After all, your greatest asset is your people.
