ODILO is the Cartagena-based company that has become a benchmark for best practices in the field of Human Resources.
Times have changed. Staying at the same company for dozens of years, without considering options for growth and benefits, is a thing of the past. Companies are looking for ways to attract the best talent and be a place where professionals choose to develop professionally and personally.
ODILO, the e-learning multinational born in Cartagena, which has reached more than 170 million users in 52 countries around the world with its unlimited learning ecosystems, is positioned as one of the favorites to work in the Region of Murcia.
The company’s selection process allows it to determine the profiles that combine a great knowledge and interest in the technological or e-learning world, along with a passion for sharing and learning every day from the best; these are the ones that make it through an important filter. In this way, ODILO creates a virtuous circle in attracting talent that expands globally.
But what makes this company one of the favorite companies to work for in Murcia? Two main aspects have been detected: multiple benefits for employees, as well as the prestige and professional development it offers.
Indeed, it is a company’s good practices that attract and retain the best talent, as high staff turnover translates into considerable losses for an organization.
For ODILO, the development of the people who make up its workforce is fundamental, so both employees and their families have access to the ODILOFY platform, which has content specifically designed for employees, as well as the largest digital educational catalog in the world. Titles and learning experiences from more than 6,300 of the best providers of ebooks, courses, podcasts, videos, magazines, press, educational resources, summaries, movies or educational apps in different languages are available to each of those who are part of the company.
A platform, described by users as “Netflix/Spotify” style, intelligently selects and puts at a click away the best educational content and learning experiences among millions of options to suit each user’s preferences and needs.
The well-being of each of the “ODILERS” is a priority for the company, so it has established a wellness plan in which they can access psychologists, coaches and resources to accompany them in their work and personal needs as they arise in their daily lives. The company also has strict anti-corruption, equality and criminal compliance policies, as well as protocols against workplace harassment. And as for development in the workplace, employees have frequent one-on-one follow-ups with their managers, as well as performance reviews.
Being able to work from home is a valuable benefit that improves work-life balance. ODILO offers hybrid work and 66% of its workforce is still working from home; it also encourages flexible hours and shorter workdays. What could be better? Especially given that on days that employees work from the office they receive unlimited free fruit and coffee!
Flexible remuneration is another of the valuable benefits that allows employees to use part of their salary on products and services that allow them significant savings; including food, transport, health insurance, childcare, further training, discount coupons, and more.
According to a publication by the APD (Association for Progress and Management) on the importance of talent retention, “it’s an indicator that minimizes workforce turnover and helps improve stability and continuity at the organization in question, two fundamental aspects of business competitiveness.”
Great Place to Work points out that “it is proven that people who feel emotionally well increase their productivity and reduce their absences from work. In addition, this well-being results in greater retention of talent and greater employee commitment to the company.
Well-being at the company must be the result of a strong and healthy company culture that focuses not only on the company’s economic growth, but also on people’s own growth and development, favoring work environments in which communication and the celebration of achievements are key”.
As part of this well-being, ODILO heavily promotes team integration. In the second week of October, the entire workforce of Spain has gathered in Cartagena to enjoy exercise, recreational, and training activities. Likewise, the company, aware of the benefits of exercising on a daily basis, sponsors and promotes them through the support of internal soccer teams, registration for competitions, and races, among others.
For these reasons, the Cartagena-based company and leader in digital education maintains excellent talent in its workforce, not only in the region, but worldwide, and seeks to continue incorporating professionals who challenge themselves every day to be the best in their management areas.
