WHY WE THINK WE'RE A GREAT PLACE TO WORK

Paramount has a work culture that is pretty nontraditional for a small - medium size business. The management structure is a fine blend of flat- management and Holacray - which does not follow the traditional hierarchy system of management or operations. Instead, it distributes the structure across people based on clear roles and responsibilities, which are executed autonomously. This way Paramount's team works in a more structured way, based on a clear set of rules and processes and roles have clear accountability and increases productivity by cutting down on bureaucracy, saving time, and faster decision making. Thus Paramount encourages the "think and acts like a decision- maker" policy to encourage leadership among every team member. Additionally Paramount offers an extremely stress- free environment where job roles are not analyzed through annual reviews and matching targets with deliverables. Rather, employees are given the freedom to set targets for themselves, present it to the CEO and self- review them every year - and identify the areas where work needs to be done.

WHY WE'RE A BEST PLACE TO WORK

Spikeball operates under the philosophy that a healthy work-life balance is the key to a happy workforce and a successful company, and this is engrained in our culture. Spikeball offers its employees health benefits, unlimited vacation, remote work, biannual retreats (which are more like five-day bonding vacations), gym and cellphone stipends, and more. We believe in a work hard, rest often mentality. Spikeball invests careful thought into ensuring that the company puts culture and employees' needs and wants above all.

WHY WE THINK WE'RE A GREAT PLACE TO WORK

Happy Medium strives to be at the forefront of agency company culture. Two staff members are dedicated to the Culture Team and keeping the company true to its founding principles in all internal decisions. Curiosity, Happiness, Integrity and Teamwork (CHIT) make up those values and can be seen in conversations on a daily occurrence. Employees do not undergo an annual review, but participate in CHIT-Chats, one-on-one conversations with the CEO and Founder about their personal growth and dreams. Each employee is tasked with setting personal goals, and they are placed in a "Power Couple" with a teammate outside of their department where they can touch base and check in regularly. Happy Medium employees are encouraged to keep growing and remain curious through Happy Medium University where employees can volunteer to give a lunch workshop on tips they've learned through their own avenues. Founder Katie Patterson was able to see that when the company operated on a 7:30-5 schedule (with an early out at 2:30 on Fridays), not all employees were at their peak performance. Flex schedules were quickly introduced to allow each employee cater their day to when they felt they were most productive.
