Creating the Blue Book of Sngular
Although many stories begin with “the first time that …” in the case of the Blue Book, more than ‘a first time’, they come together with many ‘first times’ in which we opened the discussion about how we could tell each person who is part of this ecosystem, what Sngular is, how it works, and how we are or aspire to be all at Sngular.
The previously organic and now so diversified growth of Sngular, requires that the playing field is wide enough for everyone to play in a framework of mutual understanding regardless of the country, the technical discipline, or the project in which each sngular is located.
Elena Yepes, Chief People Officer at EMEA, assures that “the Blue Book, not only allows everyone in Sngular to have a book where they can consult all the issues related to their day to day, but also favors the attraction of talent for being a tool that shows the company in an honest and transparent way ”.
This manual for sngulars, like other manuals of this type, defines the bases for understanding an organization from the guts. And also, for Daniel González Rico, Chief of Operations and People at USA / APAC, this Blue Book “contains the values that move our organization: people at the core, a taste for technology, an agile spirit, and happiness doing the things we like. ”
Being able to concentrate all the information related to the Sngular culture is a relevant value for Gabriela Bárcenas, coordinator of people in Mexico, especially when talent is being incorporated throughout the world.
In addition, as Elena Yepes says, by writing down how we are and how we aspire to be, we acquire the commitment to continue working and strive to fulfill it, working as a powerful stimulus to continue improving this company.
The public opening of the Blue Book comes at a key moment, according to Daniel González Rico, “it is no secret. It is what works for us, what we like, and what makes us Sngular, and we are proud of it. I personally hope that it will serve to bring us closer to the community. ”
The Blue Book was released to the entire Sngular team in September 2019 in its Spanish version for Spain and Mexico, and in April 2020 it was published in its English version. This release achieved an average penetration of 90% among the Sngular employees.
The Blue Book was published through the Bonilista newsletter in June 2020 and is available on the Sngular website. It is a live document, constantly being updated thanks to the efforts of the Sngular People & Culture teams.
