WHY WE THINK WE'RE A GREAT PLACE TO WORK

I believe the value on putting employees first makes Affect the best place to work. The culture at Affect encourages teamwork, work life balance, rewards employees often with lunches, gifts, outings and bonuses several times per year for all employees. All VPs and the CEO have had children while working at Affect and have all returned to work and have grown within the company.

At AgBiome, no one has a boss. Instead, employees come together to form teams around different projects, and decisions are made on the recommendation of the company's internal experts. There are no personal bonuses, only a common profit-sharing program, so employees are aligned and don't compete with one another. The entire company meets every week, and employees are updated in full transparency, including on the company's financials. To foster our cohesive culture, we have assembled a collaborative team of employees who are passionate in their pursuit to have a positive impact on the world.

WHY WE THINK WE'RE A GREAT PLACE TO WORK

We have always taken a people-first approach. We offer all the employee benefits expected but our real focus is on relationships and employees. The engine that powers our culture is a set of principles. It is a moral framework that exposes the core idea that you can treat others well and still grow. Our approach is different. We believe that you can love your job. That is also why we are self-funded and profitable. We reject the current growth-at-all-costs mentality defined by the hyped “unicorn” era and believe that sustainable success comes from respecting and serving others.

WHY WE THINK WE'RE A GREAT PLACE TO WORK

Our culture is a defining characteristic of what makes our business so special and why we feel our team joins and stays here. We built our company around "ownership" and make this core to our identity and success. Ownership drives the team to challenge each other, take responsibility, put in the hard work and push the limits of what we think is possible. Being a culture-first company comes with an understanding of how values are interpreted. Our ability to keep culture at the center of who we are make us one of the best places to work.
