With competitive health and wellness programs, casual dress code, and free catered lunches and drinks, it’s no wonder that alliantgroup’s employees are fired up and ready to go each day! Energy and passion combine into the aptly-named energy and passion core value. It’s incredible to see this level of dedication every day from our employees, but how do alliantgroup employees channel that energy and passion?
“We have high energy and passion for what we do! No one does it like we do. Every day, we are able to help American businesses put money back into their pockets so that they can continue to grow and create new jobs and innovative products!”
Passion is one of the most important elements of a healthy workplace. If employees aren’t passionate about the work they’re doing, what’s the point of coming in at all? Since its founding in the early 2000s, alliantgroup has helped over 16,000 businesses claim more than $8 billion in tax incentives. This staggering statistic is just one element of alliantgroup that works to inspire the daily dedication of its hundreds of employees.
But why is this passion important? Alison Robins of Officevibe writes that passionate workers are those who go beyond engagement. In her article on the importance of workplace passion, she writes, “When an employee is passionate about what they do, they consistently look for better ways to improve themselves, their role, and the business in general. There’s a much bigger focus on growth and development. Rather than bumps and dips (with engagement), you get a consistent, steady growth.” In essence, Alison points out one of the key factors of passion and energy: the concept of consistent self-improvement.
Think back to the previous core values we’ve discussed: investment, high performance, raving fan mission, and active not passive. These four dogmas call for growth, success, and creative and critical thinking. While alliantgroup’s free catered lunches and health and wellness programs help energize employees, the core values are what convert energy into passion.
Another question: what defines passion? A Deloitte University Press survey defines it using three commitments:
- Domain: the desire to create a lasting impact on a company or industry.
- Questing: the desire to be challenged and improve performance.
- Connecting: the desire to develop deep relationships with and learn from others.
In this regard, passion is about being well-rounded. It’s not just coming into work every day—it’s going above and beyond expectations, whether those be expectations in the office, at your computer, or during workplace events and meetings. Our employees funnel that firecracker energy into blazing passion, and we couldn’t be happier with the results!
