SoftwareOne Pte. Ltd. secures Employee Engagement of the Year - Computer Software at SBR Management Excellence 2023
Their ONE@SWO Ecosystem and strategic approach resolved employee issues and enhanced the overall employee experience.
SoftwareOne a global provider of end-to-end software and cloud technology solutions, has been awarded the Employee Engagement of the Year - Computer Software trophy at the prestigious SBR Management Excellence Awards 2023, underscoring its steadfast commitment to fostering a positive and engaging work environment through a series of impactful initiatives.
Boasting a global workforce of more than 9000 employees, SoftwareOne adopted a comprehensive approach to nurture the growth and development of its staff through the ONE@SWO organisation development ecosystem. Anchored by the seven pillars for the growth of an employee in all aspects: professional, leadership, and personal development. This initiative aims to create a holistic employee experience.
The introduction of the ONE@SWO programme brought tangible improvements, with employees being more engaged in the business, finding greater meaning in their work, and rallying behind the Shared Vision 2026—to be the most trusted experts in software and cloud solutions, unlocking value in every space they serve.
Central to SoftwareOne's strategy was an engagement survey designed to understand and address the unique needs of each employee. The subsequent improved scores reflected the company's proactive stance in resolving issues and enhancing the overall employee experience.
This engagement demonstrated SoftwareOne's adept alignment with the professional and personal goals of its workforce, as evidenced by the positive correlation between improved engagement scores and a notable decrease in attrition from January to September 2023. This reduction underscores the efficacy of SoftwareOne's employee engagement activities in retaining its valuable talent.
Strategic communication played a pivotal role in SoftwareOne's success, with the launch of SWO Connect and the issuance of bi-annual newsletters serving as effective channels to keep employees abreast of company updates. Leveraging social media platforms such as LinkedIn further exemplified SoftwareOne's commitment to showcasing its workforce externally whilst simultaneously reinforcing internal pride and a sense of community.
SoftwareOne unequivocally prioritises its employees, making substantial investments in their personal growth and well-being. The company astutely acknowledges the critical role that effective communication plays in crafting a positive work environment and fostering a culture that seamlessly aligns with its overarching vision: “Be The Most Trusted Experts in Software & Cloud Solutions who unlock value in every space we serve.”
