What do you think when you hear the term people first?
You may have worked for another company that frequently espoused dozens of cliché-infused declarations such as “People are our greatest asset” or “Our success rests on our people.”
Over and over again, you were presented grand, overarching – yet fuzzy – notions of what this corporate jargon may mean – and…you still remained skeptical.
Because too often, these were just words with no real meaning, and the employee experience was not consistent with the sentiment.
But not in Riversand.
From the day Riversand was founded, our employees have remained at the center of our focus. And the reason for this is two-fold. We care for our employees, and we want a reliable and healthy workforce.
We know engaged, productive, and empowered employees make the right things happen. They delight our customers and help Riversand grow. And yes, taking care of our people or a people-first approach is a great business strategy. But that’s not the whole picture.
We recognize there is life outside of work, and we understand that you have personal priorities and goals that are important to you. In other words, we also value your happiness.
Riversand remains committed to supporting you in your job and your life. We understand that you may have had personal issues you needed to address and resolve, especially in these challenging times.
At the same time, we know that you have professional goals to align with. Having it all work out for you is a priority.
When we say that Riversand is a People First Company, we mean:
Having said this: All of the above are not just value statements; it’s about taking action. From the first day you join us and throughout your time here, our people will and always have come first.
As part of our culture – every month, every quarter, every year – we think about how our business strategies and initiatives impact the Riversand family members and how to make us better.
Our success is your success, and you are first in all of our decision-making.
