Ninety percent of the Xelerate, LLC team works outside the company’s headquarters, either from home or on-site with clients. “Because of our philosophy of transparency through communication, we have managed to form a company culture that transcends the distance and time zones,” says Emily V. Biscardi. “Successes are recognized publicly through team emails, and information is shared quickly and efficiently through various channels, resulting in a team that feels like a tight-knit group.” Xelerate also makes time to bring everyone together, for example for Pizza Wednesday or monthly happy hours. To support remote employees, the company sends gift cards. “We have three employees who work in Colorado and who had never met. Xelerate sent them out to dinner with one another over the holidays,” says Biscardi.
“Xelerate’s vision provides the foundation for our values, it orients and guides our employees, it provides us with shared values, and it sets standards for our customers.”
