Author: Michael L. Jackson
FormAssembly was recently recognized as one of the Top Workplaces by IndyStar. In the IndyStar profile on FormAssembly, written by Michael L. Jackson, Jackson discusses:
- The downsides of both in-office and fully remote environments and the key to creating a successful workplace environment
- Having a company culture that is committed to dialogue and transparency
- The importance of having company summits and retreats to encourage team bonding and discuss key goals
Michael L. Jackson on the necessity of measuring company culture and the overall happiness of FormAssembly teammates:
“As the company has grown, Savarese said it was important to take the pulse of employees to better understand the culture and worker happiness. Both appear to be in good shape. FormAssembly’s first participation in the annual survey of Central Indiana’s Top Workplaces landed it in the No. 3 spot in the small company category.”
Michael L. Jackson on creating a successful remote workplace culture:
“Creating a thriving workplace culture can be challenging when its employees are all working from home offices and coffee shops, or as Savarese puts it, wherever ‘they’re comfortable.’ Employees stay connected with each other and what’s happening at the company through the use of cloud-based tools and services like Slack.”
Cedric Savarese, Founder and CEO of FormAssembly, on the foundation of trust in building remote teams, which is a part of what makes FormAssembly one of the best remote companies to work for:
“The big thing is that we want to be treated as adults where we work. I don’t need to be standing behind their backs overseeing what they’re doing. I know that if I trust people and let them choose the way they want to work, they’re going to be productive and it’s been working very well for us.”
