Check How Maitri Found Her Bliss by Taking Accountability at Radixweb

Darshit's Story of Finding the Perfect Role in Radixweb

This was Maitri’s approach when she joined Radixweb in the year 2015. Before joining Radixweb, Maitri Parikh worked on a series of roles where her true passion for software development was left unexplored.

Despite holding a B.Tech degree in Computer Engineering, Maitri wasn’t satisfied with the role where she could continue her career. That’s when she decided to change and came to Radixweb to explore her professional voyage.

Today she is a Project Manager and leads our .NET team. She takes care of all the responsibilities regarding planning and executing software projects for global clients.

Let’s hear from Maitri herself about what she has to say on her journey with Radixweb.

It’s All About Experience

Experience teaches you a lot. After working with different organizations, I have seen that employees crave trust, social cohesion, and a sense of purpose. They want to know that their efforts are valued, and work is recognized.

Every individual wants clear roles, responsibilities, and chances to develop and progress. They expect that their personal sense of perseverance will coincide with that of their company. They also desire a suitable physical and digital environment that allows them to strike an elusive work-life balance.

At Radixweb, I found a work culture that not only makes me more productive but also drives me to do better every day. Providing excellent employee experience is more than word of mouth; Radixweb truly believes in a people-first approach. The management prioritizes its workforce by studying and responding to how they perceive the process and then delivering personalized interventions that focusses on them.

Learning Ownership and Accountability

After joining Radixweb, I found my bliss in taking accountability. Yes, a skill that is the most essential for every individual’s career. Accountability enhances work relationships, increases job satisfaction, and allows teams to collaborate more efficiently, but most importantly it gives us a sense of belonging. It gives us greater control over our work and gives assurance to the team because everyone knows they can rely on one another to get things done.

My seniors helped me master these skills through practical implementation. Earlier my approach of doing work was to just get tasks completed. But now I know the actual meaning of taking ownership.

Mastering team accountability can assist professional groups in having more productive performance discussions and holding each other obligated in a more supportive manner. It motivates people to achieve their goals and enhance their performance, and it is inextricably tied to outcomes (and revenue).

An excellent place to start is with goals and expectations. You can’t be held responsible if you don’t know your prime responsibilities. Set precise and quantifiable goals for yourself and your team so that everyone, including yourself, understands what you’re attempting.

Whenever we get a complex project, we knew that our managers and teammates would have our back. For example, during the pandemic, I was assigned to a project in which we had to circumvent the requirement of implementing a module in software that we had never worked upon; however, with an amazing team and sheer guidance of our leaders, we did that successfully.

Over time, I noticed how I could scale at a rate I never thought I was capable of. As a Great Place to Work certified organization, Radixweb emphasizes its people taking ownership and expressing their ideas. There is the freedom to experiment and fail and this is something I had been desperately seeking in my pre-Radixweb.

Maitri’s Tips to Demonstrate Accountability in the Workplace

When you admit you’ve made a mistake, you’re also acknowledging that you have the power to correct it. And that, my friends, is the beauty of accountability. Here are a few things that I feel which come as a positive output when you take ownership or accountability for something:

  • By the agreed-upon deadline, you can complete the duties that have been allocated.
  • Take responsibility for your team’s success and do everything to help them when they need it.
  • When scheduling meetings, be prepared and ready on time to demonstrate respect for everyone else’s time (and expect others to do too).
  • Take responsibility for the issues you’ve identified by bringing solutions to the table as well.
  • Don’t brush concerns under the rug or think the problem has already been resolved. Rather, raise issues as they emerge.

Overall, cultivating a culture of accountability within your team will boost employee morale and productivity while providing your team with the autonomy and sense of ownership required to thrive. If you believe your team lacks this culture, it’s time to make changes!

Taking full responsibility for something isn’t just something to consider at the end of the year or when anything goes wrong. Every day at Radixweb, our teams practice this by communicating openly, discussing commitments, and reporting on their progress.
