Most traditional organizations are not setup to foster independent action or even collaboration. Teams, hierarchies, and silos can inhibit employees from realizing their full potential. There are often legacy systems and a labyrinth of company processes, which can prevent teams from working together.
I am very thankful that here at SME Digital things work differently than most consultancies or agencies. For starters, our entire team works virtually, and we see each other (in person) only a couple of times a year. Also, we lack set work hours and don’t even have a vacation/PTO policy…well at least not like anything you have ever heard of (learn more here.) And in my time here, I have noticed certain attributes in our employees that help us thrive.
