TCDX’s missions are based on its 5 strategies, which centers on its employees being seen, heard, and felt. This is with the aim to extend the impact to their customers and respective communities.

The first strategy is creating spaces that promote culture, focused on providing open and collaborative workspaces to make happier employees. Offices are designed to be a modern place where people, culture, and ideas can fuse. Second, is to reimagine performance management. Here, employees are enabled to benefit from the wide range of development and career planning activities.

The third strategy is investing in employee happiness. One of the efforts under this is the #BeHappier campaign which zeroed in on bolstering employee morale and well-being through a host of seminars, games, and contests in the virtual space. The series received a passionate response from the community, accompanied by countless comments requesting a second implementation.
