Gone are the days where your job was to make management happy. People want to do meaningful work, and they care about improving the life of people around them.
The future of work is about empowered teams. It's about giving people clear goals, and let them figure out how to get there. And our job at Tability is to support them.
We live in a world of constant distractions, where we are pulled in a million different directions all the time. It's the dozens of meetings, hundreds of emails, thousands of conversations that happen every week. It's hard to stay focused on the initiatives we most care about.
We're here to bring clarity. We're here to show you the impact of your work.
When we come to work, we bring our best selves. If we aren’t a good company to work for, there’s no way we can do a good job for your team. These are the values that help us keep our mindset and mission on track.
It’s easy to fall for the urge to copy, follow and prescribe to a standard in order to reach a larger audience or fit a certain mold. We celebrate our differences, to show that there are other ways to do things.
We thrive on feedback. We build everything knowing it’s not perfect or done, so we seek feedback with open arms. We learn from our failures, and we teach each other how to be better.
Strive to be approachable, concise, and purposeful. Simplicity takes patience and understanding, but it's worthwhile to create better experiences at work and in product.
It’s easy in business to focus on numbers and dollar signs. Always remember that there are people at the other end of everything we do. Make business decisions for the good of people, not just to benefit our bottom line.
Oh and also, have fun.
We’re a small team, but we’re growing. We also write things over on our blog →
