“Where Booker excels is identifying uniquely qualified, immensely talented and ridiculously passionate people,” says Joshua McCarter. Booker Software, Inc. employees are not only passionate about their work, but also about opportunities to get to know each other. This attitude feeds the company’s family culture. In fact, when Booker lost a client to the recent tragedy in Orlando, the company collaborated to raise $3,000 for the One Orlando Fund. The team comes together in other ways too, such as trivia nights and cube crawls, which are the workplace equivalent of pub crawls. McCarter believes that holding events like these can turn distant employees into collaborative co-workers.
“You can’t build culture. You can hire amazingly talented people with untapped potential and find ways to harness and grow that potential by valuing their opinions and embracing their ideas.”
