Here at Strive we encourage employees to look at things differently, take risks, not fear failure, and work with a purpose. Whether it’s finding the perfect solution for a client or taking advantage of opportunities to learn and grow in their careers, employees are given the freedom to make things happen.
If it’s fun, is it still work?
We believe fun is important and that work and fun are not mutually exclusive. That’s why you’ll find an innovative culture with people swapping ideas and coming up with new concepts in our comfortable common spaces or around fresh snacks in our open kitchen. We encourage employees to be extraordinary and have fun doing it. To push the envelope in an award-winning workplace that is open, dynamic, supportive, and designed for inclusion, collaboration, and creative thinking.
Nobody sits on the bench.
We foster an active, innovative culture, providing the coaching, mentoring, and support our employees need to work at the top of their game and succeed, personally and professionally. Every employee is assigned a “people manager” – someone directly involved in tracking their growth and development to help ensure their success.
Every day starts with a brief “daily standup” where teams get together to talk about opportunities, updates, and ways to keep things fresh and moving forward. We regularly recognize employees for something they did with “Strive Fives.” It can be as significant as implementing a successful client solution or as modest as bringing in some really awesome doughnuts.
People who work here say that it’s not just the camaraderie, recognition, and support that makes it an award-winning workplace. It’s also the work we do outside of work. Everyone on our team believes in giving back, locally and globally. Like working with a variety of impactful organizations, such as Upwardly Global, whose mission is to eliminate employment barriers for skilled immigrants and refugees, and integrate this population into the professional U.S. workforce.
That’s just one of the many ways the people at Strive can and do work to help others and make the world a better place. It’s not just satisfying work, it’s work with a purpose.
