Eric Dean describes Whereoware’s culture as “geek chic,” but the most important aspect of that culture is that everyone has a voice, and every idea is welcomed. Numerous ideas submitted through an anonymous online box have been implemented, such as healthy snack deliveries and gym memberships. Whereoware employees enjoy a number of other perks, including flexible work schedules, a health challenge and themed monthly events, parties and field trips. Recognition of achievements comes in the form of “the gong” — an actual gong that employees take turns hitting when a new website or app is released, or a high-profile assignment is completed.
“Whereoware champions a corporate culture that doesn’t admire the status quo, but instead consistently raises the bar to achieve better results. The culture of high expectations has paid off.”
