Goal setting at Tractive: This is how we reach and celebrate our goals
Discover how we make our company go forward by setting goals and making our successes something to celebrate.
Ever wondered what makes a successful company? Goal setting and knowing how to celebrate them is a big start. In this blog article we will give you an insight into what goal setting at Tractive means and what it looks like when we reach our goals.
First: set the correct goals
Prior to achieving tasks, they have to be defined in a first step. That may sound simple, but the right definition decisively influences the motivation and the achievement of the tasks. A proven way for goal setting is for example the SMART method. According to this definition, goals need to be Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant and Timely.
When it comes to goal setting, Tractive also fulfills these criteria. Every three months we define new achievable goals for each department to fulfill within the next quarter. Each team guarantees that all tasks contribute to the realization of our company mission:
Strengthen the bond between pets and their owners by creating a healthier, longer and safer life together.
Regularly, the entire Tractive team discusses the progress of its plans to identify problems before they occur and solve them in an early stage. Mutual support, honesty, and permanent exchange are a significant criterion to refine our ideas. We are constantly working to achieve our goals and to define better processes. Our philosophy: Learning by doing.
Achieve goals and celebrate success
When our set goals are reached, we celebrate properly. That’s what we did this summer – already traditionally – in Mallorca.
We enjoyed four days full of sun, at the beach and by the sea with the whole company. It strengthens cohesion like nothing else and makes us come back to work, our batteries fully recharged for productive work. We would like to take this opportunity to give you some insights into this fantastic time.
Some explored the island and found this covert lagoon:
Besides relaxing and drinking cocktails at the pool, we strengthened our team spirit by playing funny games.
That’s how winners look like!
Of course we weren’t just (tr)active during daytime. What we did in the evenings, and how we keep on celebrating our goals, would go beyond the scope of this blog post.
