The corporate culture at SeedSpark is one of flexibility, productivity, connectedness and fun. In early 2016, SeedSpark created an employee survey focused on ways it could improve culture at the company. Chad T. Jenkins says SeedSpark then used the responses to determine what employees liked about working for the company, and how the culture could improve. In the end, SeedSpark created the Tiger Team, which was designed to cultivate company culture in new ways. The Tiger Team has organized team outings, events and parties, such as birthday celebrations, chili cook-offs and monthly catered lunches. In addition, SeedSpark created its UGO Awards, which give team members a way to cheer each other on, as well as to encourage servant leadership within the company.
“Technology companies are often notorious for high turnover; however, we believe that our company culture has contributed to a low churn rate of employees.”
