Pragmateam’s culture is alive and healthy. Experimentation, learning and improving are at the core of everything we do. We live and breath our OKRs.
We are passionate about giving back to the community, either through public speaking, attending meetups and conferences as well as active contribution to open source projects.
What are your company values? How does your behaviour relate to them on a daily basis? How do you continue to evolve the company values as the company evolves? How do you onboard new team mates into an existing culture and set of values?
At our recent PragmaOffsite we took the time to revisit our 12 month old OKRs. While these OKRs have served us well, we felt it was time to evolve them further, allowing them to reflect our next horizon; balancing the growth of Pragmateam (now across multiple clients, cities and countries), while also nurturing our culture.
Every two months we come together again as a team for our PragmaOffsite. Given our recent growth, now 26 Pragmatists, across 4 clients and 2 cities, the challenge we set ourselves to address at the offsite was:
How do we maintain our culture and close connection to each other while we continue to grow, irrespective of where our team mates are located or which client they are partnering with?
Last week we experimented with the offsite format, hosting a mini conference. Each Pragmatist invited a PragmaFriend, whether it be someone they are working with at a client or someone they felt close aligned to our values and passions.
