After over a year of remote working, many companies are challenged to determine the best approach to welcoming employees back into the office–if at all. And more specifically, understanding the impact to both employee satisfaction and the company’s culture. At Brown Bag Marketing, we are known for our unique, highly collaborative “Bagger Swagger” culture, so while we would love to have all of our teammates back in the office, we have to balance that desire with an understanding of employee impact and satisfaction. It is this employee-first mentality that helped us earn the Great Place to Work certification for two years running.
Brown Bag’s VP of Marketing Strategy & Business Development, Sela Missirian, sat down recently with Kyra Posey of Georgia Public Broadcasting to discuss her views as well as Brown Bag Marketing’s approach to these conversations. At the heart of Brown Bag’s approach is a commitment to helping each and every Bagger feel heard, have a career path and enjoy satisfying work.
[Sela Missirian] understands the importance of catering to a company’s culture. Her leadership team spoke with every employee to understand their needs and concerns, and accommodated its employees who wanted to wait until they were fully vaccinated to return to the office.
