A small insight into this Inspiring Workplace…
From the top down, BITE Lietuva’s leadership model inspires employee engagement and professional growth.
‘82% of our employees rate the company’s leadership as engaging, according to our latest employee engagement survey (Kincentric, 2021).
49% of our managers were promoted from lower positions, which inspires other employees to also grow and rise through the ranks.
The company’s CEO, Pranas Kuisys, visits all of Lithuania’s cities and the employees there every year. This tradition makes employees feel important and connected to their CEO. It shows the CEO is down to earth and tries to maintain a personal relationship even with employees in the most remote cities.
Our mentor program is an original way for leaders to share experience and help others grow. Based on interests and specific traits, we match employees who register to be mentors (acting as a teacher, coach, leader/guide, counsellor, role model, partner and/or friend) with those who register to be mentees – less experienced persons keen to develop as professionals, in their current area or a new one, and/or personally.
In the BITĖ talents program, each participant’s mentor is a top (C-level) supervisor. Participants of this program help implement projects that are important for the company under the supervision and guidance of area managers. This year, every BITES manager or their right-hand man could join projects that aim to strengthen the priority areas from the Engagement Survey, contribute their ideas, and help lead organisation-wide change.’
