THESE ARE THE SIX
PILLARS OF OUR CULTURE
Someone has to be steering the ship. Vision is a pillar of our culture because we believe in spreading our mission, vision, values, and goals and we believe in consistency in messaging across the organization. This pillar helps us to achieve both of those things.
If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together. This pillar is all about unifying people. The person on each team who holds the unity role will be responsible for unifying their team to achieve things they never thought possible.
The first step in achieving your goal is writing it down. At Abstrakt, we track the numbers that matter. We know that the goals we achieve tomorrow come from the work put in today. Tracking important items for both individual teams and the company as a whole helps us take the necessary steps to get to achieve the results we’re looking for.
The work of EVERY PERSON in our organization is incredibly important (and it should be celebrated). Celebrations is a pillar of our culture because we want to show people just how important and impactful their work is. We celebrate all wins, no matter how big or small. Bringing attention to our daily wins is part of what makes our culture so great; by focusing on the positive and celebrating all the good, it creates a better work environment and a safe place for everyone.
On a plane, they always say, “In case of emergency, put your oxygen mask on before helping others.” You can’t help your clients, teammates, or the organization as a whole if you’re not taking care of yourself first. Development is a pillar of our culture because we believe in our people growing both personally and professionally every day. The ultimate goal of this role and pillar? To increase the quality of life of our team members through achievement, mental and physical wellness, and professional growth.
The spirit of joy prevails where the spirit of camaraderie exists. When a team has an identity, they will naturally mold together as a more cohesive unit. Camaraderie, or mutual trust and friendship among people who spend a lot of time together, is essential for teams within an organization to be productive. Branding is an important pillar of our culture because it allows our teams to show their individuality and team identity. It’s part of our culture and part of what makes us so successful.
