It is Saturday night, I am alone in the office working on some stuff which otherwise is not possible to attend in regular days.
Even though it’s Saturday Bhupendra and Jaydeep were here almost for the entire day, working on some Angular.js application. I have not invited them neither forced them to be in the office on this off-day but still, they joined me for the day to learn things and move an important product ahead. All credits go to them for this enthusiasm they are showing towards their work and Milople.
At Milople, we are creating the largest happy organization on the planet. We are creating something that impacts millions across the world, that is huge and extraordinary in nature. And one who does this is Milopler. To create something different the people involved are also required to be different.
I would love to share today the real definition of “Milopler”, How do we want them to be and what we would be looking for while recruiting a new one. Any person not fitting these fundamentals is not a good fit, at least for Milople.
While explaining this I will randomly use “He” or “She” to address Milopler.
He is an expert of what he does. Technology, Marketing, HR, Designs, Programming or anything, he is the master player of the stuff he is doing. He has the burning desire to be one and to remain there for long. She knows how to use technology and tools she has, to render the excellent output. We don’t expect her to be an M.Tech by education but a Master by profession. anything less than that is not acceptable.
Either of 20 or 80, a person who does not learn is dead. A Milopler is a learning animal. She travels a lot, meets new people, keeps interacting, reads extensively and surfs the web and experiments a lot, to learn new things in her own domain and explores outside it too.
She is the master executor of plans and projects. He just not talks but converts ideas into actions and actions into results. He knows how to convert knowledge into output. He believes in delivery and he is committed to deliver, irrespective of time, place or anything. He is obsessed to finish stuff at its best and feels restless until he does so. He performs brilliantly, not just in 9 to 6.
He is the fire hose of new Ideas. He starts his day with a lot of new ideas and ends with a lot of work done. She finds problems everywhere and loves finding creative solutions for these. She is passionate about doing this in the most innovative and creative way.
She loves data and knows how to analyze this data to make better business decisions. Be it preparing menu for the Annual day dinner or delivering the next version of a product, he senses data very well and makes better business decisions based on that. He is business smart and knows how to bring knowledge or innovation to the user and convert it into profit. Milopler is not a clerk waiting for the next task and instructions to be performed every hour. She knows how to use her time in the most profitable way.
A Born Leader
He is a change agent and hates things not being executed well. She takes initiatives, hugs the challenges and carries the responsibilities. She does not wait for a title in order to make an impact but makes an impact because she feels her existence is useless otherwise. He builds a team of A-Grade people around him and builds super successful solutions for consumers.
He is not great just at work but at life. he is passionate not only for programming but for many other things as well. Be it cooking, driving, repairing bicycles, football, cricket, playing guitar, dancing, teaching or anything, she is passionate for stuff, she is passionate for life. The meaning of quality for her is living a wonderful life with discipline and not just a job profile. She can not be a potato couch ever!
She collaborates with the team. For learning, for training, for better customer experience. He communicates well. He expresses his knowledge and idea in a flourishing way during one-to-one and one-to-many.
Yes, Milople promises for the finest rewards and remuneration in the world. But all these she is doing is not for money but for work. She is not motivated by money but by work. This is something which I have said to Jaydeep while awarding a project. I don’t want a person whom I could tell to work late nights and on weekends. Rather I want a person who keeps working days and nights just because he is obsessed with things he is learning and results he would be delivering. A day doesn’t end for him till he achieves this.
She is the supermodel and brand ambassador for Milople. She is the power user of all the products we deliver and passionate to keep the cultural bar highest at the company. He bites any action or behavior that is unhealthy for the company immediately and would not tolerate anyone breaking sterling standards of the company. Business values of Milople are at her heart and follow herself and make others following same.
Every person may not have 100% of all these but they strive to achieve these as part of living a successful life. With all these, a single point agenda is to make an “Impact”. Their Impact on the company, society, customers, and the world. He consciously knows how much impact the vision of Milople would have on this world and he is consciously striving and acting to make her own impact on this Vision itself.
The way forward is much clearer now and I hope for the current and future Miloplers too. I would be happy discussing your views and suggestions in the comments section below.
