Managing people across different countries and time zones can be a huge challenge, but knowing how to build a strong team that can work together seamlessly can make it a smoother ride. Since he joined us in early 2019, APAC’s Head of Operations, Eddie Lee, has been responsible for teams as far ranging as Japan and Australia from his hub in our Singapore office. With APAC’s employee satisfaction score one of the highest at Revolut globally, Eddie is clearly doing something right. So we asked him to give us his top tips on building a team that’s Stronger Together.
At this time, more than ever, we need to support one another globally at Revolut - and further afield. So, whether you’re a manager or a team member, take a moment to check in on someone today and make sure they’re doing okay. If we stick together, we’ve got this.
Put your people first
Our Revoluters are the foundation of everything that we do. Though times may be more difficult right now, if you’re not putting your people’s wellness and productivity front and centre, it’s impossible to be stronger together.
Connect on a personal level
People work harder for colleagues and teams they care about. Even when we might not be there in person to build those connections over everyday little things, creating deeper connections over time will increase retention, satisfaction, and communication.
Nobody has all the answers all of the time. It’s important to cultivate intellectual humility in order to create an environment where the best ideas can win. Eddie focuses on hiring people who can level up the team; independently solving problems in an innovative way.
Celebrate the wins
We’re all human at the end of the day, and it’s important to make time for fun. Eddie highlights the value of taking the time to celebrate with your team to bring you closer together - it’s not just about bonding through the pain!
Focus on the Mission
At the end of the day, Eddie emphasises that we’re all here to build a business. The value of creating a close team results in a strong team spirit that keeps us honest if we end up doing work that lacks clarity or is against our focus.
If you believe in Stronger Together, maybe there’s a place for you at Revolut. Explore our job opportunities over on our Careers page to find your next challenge.
