“Culture is infectious – it’s viral and it’s central to accelerating your business. When you have a unified team that is rushing towards a common goal, you will create rocket ship trajectory. Every industry leader needs unbounded exponential growth to succeed in today’s world.”
Thanks to an impressively long list of perks, including laundry, healthy meals, and haircuts, employees are constantly having their personal needs met, which makes it much easier for them to be productive.
In addition to all the perks, employees are expected to put their individuality to good use by being as creative as possible, especially during Hack Week, when employees are given time to work on whatever they’d like.
I continued to get feedback from the HubSpot team that the original culture deck at HubSpot was starting to get a little dated — and it didn’t go far enough. It talked about the kind of people that were a match — but it didn’t talk at all about beliefs or behaviors. Meanwhile, the company is growing like wildfire. We’re 460 people now and adding 25+ people every month.
So, I thought to myself: “Self, maybe it’s time to update the deck…” I set out on a quest to talk to a bunch of folks, run some surveys, get some feedback, read a bunch of stuff, etc. One thing led to another…and another…and another, and here I am.
So, no matter how small your company is, start building and implementing that culture deck and make sure that you and your employees are working towards the same goal.
Then take a step back, look around your office, and prepare to be amazed.
What makes your company’s culture special?
