Curacao operates under the philosophy that any reason is a good reason to celebrate. All employees’ birthdays are celebrated at work with a little bit of fanfare. In terms of work performance, however, Curacao functions as a meritocracy. People who go above and beyond receive proper recognition, and those chosen as Associates of the Year are rewarded with a trip to Hawaii.
Curacao stores possess a kind of congenial quality, and employees appreciate the company’s inclusive culture. The company benefits from its ethos of inclusion, too. Curacao employees are motivated, by and large, because they are part of the company. Employees care about Curacao because they feel a sense of community in their workplace—a sense of belonging.
