First, what is company culture?
Company culture has become a very hot topic over the past few years and defines how an organization differentiates itself from others. So, what exactly is culture? I participated in a webinar that defined culture as easily as loving what you do, who you do it with, and who you do it for. Culture is the personality of the company; it’s an organization’s mission, working environment, habits, and goals.
How do you know if a company’s culture is the right fit for you?
In order to discover the perfect culture for you, think about a time you felt most productive, accomplished, and happy at work. What type of environment were you in? Who were you working with? What goals were you looking to accomplish together? What type of work made you feel happy and fulfilled? Were you working with a deadline in mind? What type of schedule best suited you? How were you able to balance your work and personal life? What type of team engagement and management style work for you? What were the traits of your colleagues and team? Answering these questions will help you determine the right environment that will be most motivating for you.
What is AvePoint’s culture like?
Each of our offices across the globe offer something a little different, and we have a diverse collection of personalities. I have had the pleasure of working with teams throughout the U.S. as we continue to add talented people to our AvePoint family. I also connect with our teams in Europe, Asia, and Australia to share ideas and get their perspectives on various initiatives. I work with people that I admire, always have access to, and who value my input. How many people can say they’ve developed personal and professional relationships with colleagues around the world?
Our culture is about respecting and loving our differences and taking pride in where we’re from. We host many teambuilding and community outreach events in our local offices and share pictures and memories with our greater population. We have several employee resource groups that connect us on common interests. I’m a part of our Queers & Allies ERG and enjoy monthly virtual hangouts with members. We praise and recognize each other through our global people recognition program on our achievements. We share ideas, articles and ask questions on Yammer or Microsoft Teams to help each other out. We even share books, podcasts, and Spotify playlists with one another. We’ve hosted “Empower Hours” on topics like productivity, energizing our careers and reflecting on diversity.
When it comes to company culture, it’s important to find a place you fit in with from a personality, people, and mission perspective. You can determine this through a company’s online presence and conversations with employees. I’ve really enjoyed my unique experience at AvePoint. We accomplish our goals as a team and have fun while doing so. If this type of culture speaks to you, then please reach out; we’d love to hear from you! Visit our careers site today.
