What are your top three business priorities moving into 2021, and how do you look at softer values such as care for employee wellbeing in your priorities?
First and foremost, ensuring our global teams are supported in the various states of lockdown in which they find themselves. From a business model perspective, we are focused on:
- Extending our reach through channel development (Scale).
- Accelerating our move into new cloud solutions.
- Strengthening underlying process capability to enable scale.
On employee wellbeing
We recognise that a focus on people and culture, in addition to technology, is crucial to driving sustained innovation and realising our digital potential. Throughout the course of the year, we have had to be flexible and adapt to many different challenges. We have done the best we can to support and maintain our Seequent community and continue to survey global teams, welcoming their honest input.
We strive to create a culture where the employee can depend on the employer to provide predictability, security, and make good decisions, which takes a lot of anxiety away for our employees. Prioritising a positive mindset, affirming our shared purpose, and continuing to communicate what this is, helps to keep us all on the same page.
