Honda’s Work Culture Fosters “The 3 Joys”
A crucial part of Honda Canada’s philosophy is “The 3 Joys” that allowed Honda as a brand to become a Canadian favourite. A successful company starts with talented associates who enjoy the work that they do. The 3 Joys philosophy is that everyone involved in the process of buying, selling or producing a Honda product should have a positive experience.
The Joy of Buying
The joy of buying is Honda’s ability to provide exceptional products and services that exceed customers’ expectations. Honda wants their customers to feel excited and confident when making a purchase, and this is achieved through knowledgeable, confident, and happy associates.
The Joy of Selling
The joy of selling is achieved through fully trained and certified staff who enjoy creating lasting relationships with customers. Honda prides itself on employing charismatic people who connect on a deeper level with customers. Making a sale is equally exciting for the associate as it is for the customer.
The Joy of Creating
The joy of creating encourages workers to take pride in their work and to feel confident proposing new ideas to improve the company. When associates are involved in the design, development, engineering, and manufacturing of products, they strive to ensure that only the best quality products reach the customers. There is an emphasis on creativity and collaboration.
