In business, Amjad Khanche works intentionally to create an environment in which team members feel comfortable. He actively focuses on creating a place that feels like home and that staff enjoy being at every day. He says, “When staff are happy in their environment, they are more productive and supportive of each other.”
Amjad believes in using small incentives to create a social setting that helps to bring a culture of inclusivity. He considers this a very important attribute to have in the workforce.
For instance, within his previous business, he created zen-like spaces for relaxation along with modern facilities, state-of-the-art kitchens, corporate meeting rooms and breakout areas to encourage community like gatherings. Staff retention strategies included social events, professional training, courses, recreational games and competitions with rewards. As a result, staff enjoyed attending work and it was common to hear them relating to other staff as ‘family’.
