Why does Wooga have a Feelgood Team?
This ‘Feelgood’ approach typifies our approach to employee management and isn’t just a specific role in the company. Wooga has always had an international focus both in its products and in its internal makeup and that comes with certain responsibilities towards our employees. Moving from another country or city comes with its own unique set of pressures and the Feelgood approach is designed to support Woogas so that they can concentrate on their work. This support then extends to ensuring employees are motivated in the long term, aiding in long term retention.
Why you don’t use traditional HR Management to manage your people?
Traditional HR Management often follows strict administrative guidelines and can limit your actions. By working more closely with employees and listening to feedback, we are able to proactively recommend and act on solutions that work in the interest of both parties. Today, HR is an integral part of a company’s vision and path to success instead of an administrative process like it was a decade ago.
