Our Commitment To Employee Development and Being A Company People Want To Work For
As an app development company, we understand that the success of our business depends on the skills and abilities of our staff. That’s why we have a strong focus on supporting and developing our employees, ensuring that they have the training, resources, and opportunities needed to excel in their roles.
Our commitment to supporting and developing our staff starts with the onboarding process. We recognise that starting a new job can be a daunting experience, especially in a fast-paced industry like app development. That’s why we have a comprehensive onboarding programme that covers everything from company culture and values to job-specific training.
One of our most recent recruits, Dobriyan, has found his first month at Appoly to be full of support, mentorship, and welcome. Dobriyan said: “I just wanted to take a moment to express my gratitude for such an amazing first month working with Appoly. I have been incredibly pleased with the entire experience and feel so fortunate to be part of such a fantastic team.”
During the onboarding process, we assign each new employee a mentor who acts as a point of contact, answering questions, providing guidance, and offering support throughout their first few weeks. This mentorship helps new employees feel more comfortable in their roles and provides them with a trusted point of contact to turn to when they need assistance.
Our mentoring programme pairs new employees with experienced mentors who can offer advice as they navigate their roles and career paths. We also offer coaching sessions to help employees identify their strengths and areas for improvement and develop action plans to achieve their goals.
About the mentorship programme, Dobriyan said: “From the moment I started, everyone has been so welcoming and helpful. My co-workers have gone above and beyond to make sure that I feel supported and encouraged in my role. Their positive attitudes have made a huge difference in my onboarding process, and I am grateful for their willingness to lend a hand whenever needed.”
Training Sessions and Workshops
We also offer training sessions and workshops to ensure that our employees have the skills and knowledge needed to excel in their roles. These sessions cover a wide range of topics, including time management, communication skills, leadership, and technical skills, among others. We encourage all employees to attend these sessions, including new members of staff, to ensure they are equipped with the skills needed to succeed in their roles.
Our commitment to supporting our employees’ growth and development is not limited to their time at our company. We believe in investing in our employees’ long-term careers and provide them with a clear career progression path that includes opportunities for promotion and leadership roles. We work with our employees to identify their career goals and provide them with the necessary support to achieve them.
At Appoly, we also believe in fostering a collaborative culture. We encourage our employees to work together and share knowledge to solve problems and improve our development process continually. We have an open-door policy that allows our employees to speak with management about any concerns or suggestions they may have.
Dobriyan also commented on the positive impact of this culture: “I am truly impressed by the professionalism and dedication of everyone at Appoly. The culture of collaboration and innovation is inspiring, and I feel like I am part of something truly special.”
Out Of Office
We provide a range of benefits to support our employees’ well-being, including flexible working hours, remote work options, and regular social gatherings for the team. We believe that a healthy work-life balance is essential to our employees’ happiness and productivity.
In addition to our internal training and development programmes, we also encourage our employees to participate in industry events and conferences. We recognise that the app development industry is constantly evolving, and it’s essential that our employees stay up-to-date with the latest trends and technologies. One of the most popular events in the industry is the Worldwide Web Developers Conference. Every year, the team chooses to screen the event live after work, enjoying some drinks and a takeaway together – we call it the iOS Developer’s Christmas!

Appoly’s management team believes that supporting and developing employees is essential to our success. Our commitment to investing in our staff ensures that we have a highly skilled and motivated team capable of delivering exceptional results for our clients. We believe that by investing in our employees’ growth and development, we are investing in the future of our company.
In conclusion, our commitment to supporting and developing our staff is at the heart of everything we do at Appoly. We recognise that our employees are our greatest asset, and we are committed to being the best employee we can be.
