Whatever the technology, everything revolves around three main components: Process, People, and Tools. And while “Tools” receive the majority of focus in any discussion in the technology arena, it’s the People that are the crucial component of successful organizations. We understand this here at Perficient and is a major reason why we continue to be recognized as a “Top Workplace” in countless markets across the U.S.
As a CPM (Corporate Performance Management) team member here at Perficient, I can easily see why this is the case. Being a member of Perficient’s CPM team has been, and continues to be, one of the most enjoyable experiences of my career. I invite you to continue reading below for a handful of the reasons why I (and so many others) feel this way!
3 Reasons to Join the Perficient CPM Team
The work we do changes lives. No, we’re not doctors performing life-saving operations. Nor do we rush into burning buildings to rescue people and pets. However, we do provide impactful solutions that result in tangible improvements to the daily work lives of our customers. It’s not uncommon to hear our customers express excitement about efficiency gains due to partnering with us. These efficiency gains empower our customers to utilize their time in more productive ways. Even to the point of improving their work-life balance. And that is very rewarding for our team.
Improving customers’ lives would not be possible if we ourselves didn’t feel empowered. We trust our team members to make the best decisions about their work. But we also know that new responsibilities or new types of projects can be daunting. Providing guidance and clear expectations are critical steps we take to empower team members.
Additionally, we are continuously encouraging colleagues to take steps to improve their own work experience, increase their engagement levels, and help to expand our inspiring culture. Below are just a few examples of opportunities for everyone:
- Leadership training seminars (online and in-person)
- Continuing education support
- Task forces inclusive of members from various levels and departments across the organization & globe
- Mentorship programs
- Career development plans and assistance
- Global recognition awards
- 360 Feedback
2. Team-Focused Success
How many “teamwork” posters have you seen in the workplace throughout your career? I’d bet dozens, if not more. I’ll admit, anytime I see a teamwork poster or quote, I instantly think of the printer scene from the movie Office Space. The scene beautifully portrays several team members coming together to resolve, or should I say attack, a problem. 🙂
On a more serious note, teamwork is very prevalent at Perficient. Our customers engage us to solve many of their more complex and challenging problems. These complexities require collaboration among our organization’s peers to provide solutions. This desire to collaborate and drive success is so prevalent that colleagues are willing to help even if they are not directly involved in the project/client. This dedication and willingness to help have always made me confident in the fact that there is no printer too big for our team. 🙂
3. A Caring Culture
There are only so many hours in the day. And this can many times lead organizations, especially in the consulting industry, to lose sight of the bigger picture of life. Not so at Perficient. Our leadership encourages involvement in many different ways to give back. Donations, volunteer work, hunger drives, employee-driven resource groups, etc. are just a few examples of the culture here. Not only does leadership encourage involvement, but they often “walk the walk” and lead the way. Out of these three reasons to consider joining us, this is probably the biggest… if we didn’t have the right culture, there’s no possible way empowerment or teamwork would be possible.
