How would you describe Venntifact’s company culture?
The community feeling comes out in full force whenever there is a milestone to celebrate, and more so when help and support is requested. Most people upon joining Venntifact, or even as they are progressing through the interview stages, have commented on the warmth they feel almost instantly between us as colleagues.
Many hands make light work, a motto we have lived and breathed since the start of Venntifact. We ran a survey about a year into operations, and our question was “Which value do you feel best represents Venntifact”. Collaboration was one of the highest ranking values chosen by our people which we were really proud of.
Honest and Transparent
Venntifact has gone through multiple growth spurts in the past two years and each growth spurt has come with its fair share of unique challenges and considerations. Each time, the leaders have chosen to be honest and open about issues they are working through.
By demonstrating this behaviour from the top we are now seeing the same behaviour repeated between people through the organisation. This level of honesty and transparency has led to stability in employee engagement and helped us manage employee sentiment a lot better through the COVID-19 period.
Work-life balance at Venntifact
We believe that a healthy balance of work and fun improves overall productivity and performance. This is the main driving force behind all the effort we put into creating regular social opportunities for everyone to gather and have fun together.
Each month we have time set aside for Lunch & Learn (peer-to-peer knowledge sharing session) and a “Vennti-show” (end of month recap of milestones, celebrations, showcase of personal passion projects and games).
In recent times with everyone working from home, we have instituted a mid-week hangout hour to replicate the act of physically gathering at the lunch table – purely for social contact and chatter with anyone welcome to jump in and out anytime with no pressure.
We work hard to ensure our people do not view their work as a chore by respecting and showcasing personal passion projects as much as we value high quality of work delivered. Our goal is to ultimately create advocates for the Venntifact brand by ensuring our people are well balanced in work, fun and personal passions.
How would you describe the team’s working style?
We are extremely collaborative in our approach. We have created a set of virtual tools and best practice models that encourage collaborative discussions when designing a solution. Virtual “whiteboarding” is the most popular tool we have that is used on almost every consulting project we work on.
Our operational and delivery processes have been set up purposefully to support the right people performing the right duties in a role, which has worked well to reduce overlaps of attempting to do something that may not be your core skill.
We have also cultivated a group of people with different personalities, backgrounds, professional experience and passions, to ensure we infuse multiple perspectives to all our client delivery.
