As one of the smaller companies in its industry, Mindtree Limited is forced to be nimble and people-centric. Scott Staples says the company’s U.S. office has open seating, with no cubicles or walls, to foster collaboration. In fact, collaboration is deeply engrained in the way Mindtree functions. Creating this culture, says Staples, starts with the hiring process, during which organizational fit is the most important qualifier for a potential employee. Once employees are on board, Mindtree makes sure they have the resources they need to thrive. The company has created extensive knowledge management systems that provide employees with data and templates. Recently, Mindtree rolled out a new video-based training platform to improve access to its distributed team.
