SINGAPORE, SINGAPORE – Diversity at the workplace is a key ingredient for business success by making use of different backgrounds to create a more creative, productive, innovative and competitive workforce. With these advantages, however, comes also the responsibility to provide a welcoming and balanced environment within the company, a responsibility that David Selakovic, Managing Director of Selacorp, an all-in-one business solutions provider, takes very seriously: “As part of our goal to address diversity and service for the needs of our employees, we develop affinity networks that are designed to support diversity as well as inclusion strategies. These networks offer educational and training programs as well as networks, forums, leadership programs and events that also help stimulate camaraderie for each employee and ensure that all their needs and queries are addresses strategically for quality results.”
Initiatives offered at Selacorp include a professional network for the LGBT community, a Women’s Network, programs for working parents and a network for employees with disabilities. The idea behind all these programs and networks is the same, explains Selakovic: fostering a corporate environment that creates a welcoming and respectful work atmosphere for all employees, regardless of their race, religion, sexual orientation, disability or other aspects and providing them with a platform where they can exchange ideas, interact with their peers and discuss mutual interests. Through the various affinity networks issues can be raised, addressed, solved together or forwarded to the management.
Maintaining this structured approach to support diversity at the workplace is characteristic of Selacorp’s business philosophy, which puts great emphasis on supporting each and every individual in the company, from team member to board member, appreciating the fact that every employee has his or her role in the company and in the world, a role that should be acknowledged and fostered, for the benefit of the individual as well as for the organization as a whole. Transferring these values to the way clients are being treated and serviced at Selacorp explains why the company has been so successful and is constantly growing – Selacorp has now offices in Las Vegas, London, Hong Kong and Singapore. Together with his international teams, Selakovic offers complete business solutions for technology, research and innovation that provide flexible, creative and resourceful services, products and innovations, tailor-made to the needs and requirements of the individual client.
