Swain Techs’ workforce is dispersed across many different states, including Virginia, Florida, Maryland and Pennsylvania. This makes for a culture that relies on trust in the company’s employees. “We don’t micro-manage,” says Manuel Trujillo. “People are motivated because they are doing what they like to do. They are passionate and they also enjoy their personal life with the flexibility we have.” Swain Techs uses technology to eliminate the barriers that can crop up in a dispersed organization, and profit-sharing plans help employees feel a part of the company’s success. Every year, Swain Techs hosts a holiday party, BBQs and a town-hall meeting. “The town halls are very important to communicate the mission, the vision, the key achievements and the benefits to employees,” says Trujillo.
“Have clear core values [and communicate] them daily.”
