HR Insider’s Eye

What do you think about Renier Lombard’s accessibility to all team members in his growing business?

While he’s leading the charge and expanding the business successfully, everyone in his company can easily schedule a chat with him.

I believe his approach to running the business is well-suited for the new generation entering the workforce. In more traditional setups, hierarchy and structure are important. Reporting lines and communication channels are clearly defined, and deviating from them is often frowned upon, almost seen as breaching company policy.

But that’s not the case at FDC. What IS the case at FDC is taking those one on one conversations as a reflection opportunity, and he is careful not to rob team members of their ability to problem solve. In this way, Renier ensures he is fostering a culture of belonging AND personal accountability.

Do you resonate with his approach?
