The FocusU Credo is in most parts, what we are every day. But it is also – what we aspire to be. It is also a call out to all those “awesome” people out there who think on broadly similar lines – and are still searching for a place to “arrive” at! Have a quick dekko at our culture deck and our own FocusU anthem, to get a sense of what it is – to be a part of our team.
The FocusU LifeWe are not the typical company – we never want to be. We are collegial, we are informal, we don’t believe in designations or hierarchies, we laugh a lot & yet we are intense and passionate to the core. Here are a few elements of the FocusU Life:
WEARING THE WIG
Sounds funny – but is hugely developmental. WIG stands for Wildly Important Goal - A monthly cadence of activities like reading books, writing blogs, doing internal knowledge sharing sessions by everyone in the team!
We appreciate that our work needs as much collaboration as it does introspection too. We also believe that our employees stretch where needed well beyond work hours. Hence we have a 7 hour work day.
An obsession for Feedback on everything we do – we call it Feed Forward though! We do it after every workshop, we do it for everyone every year ….. and we don’t hold back, if we think it is needed in between too! Ouch!
We are big believers that books are the cheapest & easiest way for individuals and hence the organization to grow. So, anyone wanting to buy ANY book to learn can just go ahead without any prior approvals. All we ask is – do share the knowledge!
Our own internal FocusU University – no sprawling campuses … yet, but it is our way to ensure that all our people are continuously growing in the FocusU Way of delivering workshops – and also getting external perspectives!
We are big believers in the Danish “Hygge.” For us it is about being with people we love. A feeling of home. A feeling that we are safe and shielded to let our guards down. It is about enjoying a cup of tea in silence with friends, while it rains outside.
A large part of life in FocusU is about travel. We believe that travel is the best teacher. Our work takes us to all parts and corners of the country (and sometimes outside too) where workshops are done. Truly as it is said, “All those who wander are not lost.”
Its 7am in the morning – and already one FocusU Whatsapp channel is buzzing. Someone does yoga, someone else has gone for a run, the more motivated folks are already in gyms! The FocusU Fitness League is our own way to motivate one another towards better health and fitness – the fun way.
LEARN & EARN
Every single person is encouraged to do his/her MBA – not to get a fancy degree – but because we believe it opens up one’s thinking about the world. That’s not all – you get a hefty bonus for doing that too! Yes, you can earn while you learn!
Loves web designing and tinkering around the net. Is passionate about bringing in new technologies. He runs his own website (www.iamprabhjot.com) on the side.
Is a Facilitator with us. Fitness maniac – Marathon runner – does all that along with his day job here with us. And motivates all the rest of us too!
The man who moves around with scraped knees and frequent bruises on his face is as passionate a basketball player as he is a Facilitator!
Inspiration is not by what you say – it is by who you are. His passion towards wholistic wellness rubs off on participants and colleagues alike!
We believe that celebrations and rituals are not about the event. They’re about touching the hearts and souls of individuals. And so, we look for excuses to celebrate.
