Culture advice from our friends
"We over-invest in communication so that no one ever feels like they're stuck on a remote island. We aim for everyone to stay in the loop and be on the same page with all the happenings in the company. We do this through purposeful onboarding, weekly 1:1’s and all-hands calls, and public praise of the work the team is doing."
"When onboarding folks remotely, it becomes extra important to include cultural tidbits as well as a framework for creating and finding community. Ultimately, you want someone not just to be effective but to feel they belong and have the tools to navigate the culture they are entering. By standardizing sharing this information early, you place everyone on a more equal footing to succeed particularly when working in an international and diverse context."
