Ananda Soul is – as our name conveys – a brand, a name that carries Soul. We’re a soul-ful(l) place, our office is most days filled with giggles, laughter and witty banter. Our souls nudge us onto the right way in our decision making processes, our creative processes, our production, our blessings, our fulfilment.
In the intricate tapestry of life, woven with experiences and emotions, only few threads are as enduring and resilient as the bonds of family love. From the laughter that echoes through shared moments to the comforting embrace in times of sorrow, family love is the foundation that sustains us. Imagine you had that in a work environment? Well…That is us.
True team love
In the ever-evolving landscape of the modern workplace in combination with the constant changes we face in our world individually and collectively, the importance of fostering a culture of care and support within teams cannot be overstated.
Ananda Soul is going to celebrate its sweet 16th this year. And one constant that has been carrying this brand throughout the years is our team. To cultivate a sense of family at work has always been one of our biggest aspirations.
From an initial team of 2 in 2008 to 28 team members in 2024, this team today creates and nurtures the bond of a family. The women in my business show up for their families, their loved ones and themselves, for each other and – because of the greater field and intention that connects us – for our work and our brand. It has been our philosophy from the very start to keep creating the roles that suit their skills and contributions to Ananda the most. And this is what keeps everyone mutually supported and happy.
Care for your team
Team care itself goes beyond traditional notions of teamwork; it delves into the realm of emotional and psychological support. It's about creating an atmosphere where team members feel valued, heard, and supported in both their professional and personal lives. In a world where the lines between work and life often blur, acknowledging and addressing the holistic well-being of employees has become paramount.
It is very touching to come to the office on a regular base and to witness little gestures and shared laughter that show the warmth and care everyone holds for one another, and how beautifully everyone supports one another in times of trials and tribulations. Ayu, Kadek, Ovie, Yanti, Yuni, Yulia and all the others are true beacons of light who show up just the way they are, and that is what makes it all most special. To show up as you are opens the gateways to connection and mutual support. This is what makes the support system of our Ananda family unparalleled.
The impact of shared team love
‘Family’ love comes with very little conditions or expectations. It's an acceptance that transcends flaws and imperfections, embracing each member for who they are. In a world that often demands conformity, the sanctuary of love allows us to be our authentic selves, fostering a sense of security and self-worth, particularly through belonging.
Just like in any family our team love is intricately woven into the fabric of shared memories and traditions. Whether it's the annual holidays, special rituals, or the simple joy of everyday moments, these shared experiences create a tapestry of love that binds everyone together.
Our team bonds act as a safety net during life's storms. The emotional resilience derived from the love and support of family members empowers individuals to navigate challenges with courage and grace.
We celebrate milestones, from birth to birthdays, with one another. The team love adds an extra layer of joy to life’s happenings.
There is support in all aspects of life. And that makes us very proud to be a part of Ananda Soul and to be Ananda Soul together. It is the silent strength in these bonds that sustains us during challenging times and the exuberant joy that magnifies life's celebrations.
