Our Ideology, Philosophy And Working Modality
We value our people. CE belongs to its staff as much as it belongs to its directors. This "Sense of Belonging" is reflected in our everyday action - in the way we recognize deserving performance, the provision we have for involvement in the decision making process and the many opportunities for career growth with us. Likewise, "Lifetime Involvement" is our unique way of saying we will always value our relationship with you and that your opinion and experience count. Lifetime Involvement is CE's promise to keep open to its staff, avenues for involvement in the organization's activities even after their active employment age.
In all that we do and in all that we are today, our valued clients are central to our success. We are committed to act with honesty and integrity letting your needs guide our effort.
TRUST, TRANSPERANCY AND TEAM SPIRIT:
These are the 3 T's that CE believes will make the company a well organized system with satisfied employees and consequently, satisfied clients. 'Sense of belonging' and 'life time employment' are CE's unique way of gaining the trust of its employees and furthering their team spirit. 'Sense of belonging' implicates that CE belongs to the employees. CE assigns jobs to its employees as per their physical and mental conditioning for as long as they wish to work For those employees that show a 'spark' CE has been known to provide them with practical training and opportunities within CE, as well as help them start their own venture with CE's management expertise.
4 C's of Working Modality: Committed, Competitive, Confident and Creative:
These are the C's that has turned the company around. As a 'D' class contractor CE committed itself to upgrading its status and enhancing its turnover. By enhancing productivity and quality it succeeded in establishing itself as a leader in the industry. With the assurance came confidence which allowed it to tap into its creativity.
So for all who wish to understand CE and its success, CE has become the company that it is today because of its people, its policies, its working modality and its daring to do something different.
Quality of Life:
Quality of life consists of both physical and psychological well being of an individual. As a socially responsible organization, we aim to contribute to this by providing favorable working conditions, taking safety measures to avoid health hazards, creating an environment that fosters trust, transparency and team spirit, and ensuring opportunities for their financial security.
To substantiate our effort is our staff housing project in Dhapasi - the Harmony Housing. Apart from this, the company has also created an employee welfare fund, to help those who need fund at the time of an emergency.
The purpose of Lifetime Involvement is to ensure that age does not become a factor for having to relinquish one's position in the organization. CE will offer to its staff who have crossed their active employment age, opportunities to get involved in the organization's activities in the capacity most befitting their mental and physical capability.
After spending considerable number of years in the organization, our staff are our most valuable source of skill, wisdom and knowledge and we want to be able to honor the fact and to grow under their guidance.
The objective of the initiative is to develop a sense of belonging to the organization and to reinforce the idea that they are a part of the CE family.
Growing by Partnership:
The challenges facing individuals in determining that next level in their career has become daunting in today's unpredictable job market. Having said that, opportunities will always be present to the creative and the enterprising individuals. To this end, CE provides partnership opportunities to staff that show commitment and have the required capability.
As with any life cycle, it holds true with efficiency/learning in the career path too -beginning steeply with one's introduction to an organization, it has a tendency to plateau off at a point when the tasks become repetitive to be challenging anymore. At this point, individuals, feeling limited at their current jobs may look to embark on something higher or new. For many, the dream to start their own business remains just that - a dream, due to reasons of inadequate finance, management expertise etc. CE's policy of "Growing through Partnership" provides the means to, thereby, giving its staff all the necessary support.
Growth is only limited to where you think it is limited; CE's policy is to have an open arm for all who want to grow with it.
