Today Inc. Magazine and Winning Workplaces announced the winners of the 2011 Top Small Company Workplaces. ReadyTalk is thrilled to be included in this year’s list.

As a ReadyTalk employee, there’s no denying that the benefits and perks are tremendous—amazing healthcare, generous retirement, beer, yoga and more (for the complete list, check out our careers page). But, in my opinion, these are the things that make ReadyTalk an awesome environment.

For me, the best thing about working at ReadyTalk is the collaboration. ReadyTalk is by far one of the most collaborative companies and environments I’ve worked in. Here are a few examples:


  • Workspace: Short cube walls don’t always equal collaboration. I’ve worked in places with short walls where you could hear a pin drop. That’s not the case a ReadyTalk. It’s common to see two or three people standing over their cubes having an impromptu conversation rather than sending an email.

  •

    Free Drinks + Free Snacks = Lots of Input: The ReadyTalk kitchen is a favorite spot around the office. Stocked weekly with snacks and drinks, there are always people in the kitchen (especially after 4 p.m. when beers are being poured). It’s a great place to get an opinion from colleagues or brainstorm new ideas.


  • Scrum and Daily Stand Ups: ReadyTalk’s engineering department has had great experiences using the Scrum process. Recognizing the value in the process, almost every department at ReadyTalk has implemented a variation of Scrum or Kanban. In marketing, we see a ton of value in meeting daily to talk through what needs to happen each day and what roadblocks might prevent us from meeting our goals.

  • Meetings and Brainstorms:  Want to hone your creative skills? Join the ReadyTalk CEO twice a month for creative thinking exercises. Have an idea for product innovation? There’s a monthly brainstorm session for that. Want to recognize a colleague for his/her hard work? Share at the weekly all-company meeting. There a numerous scheduled opportunities to connect, collaborate and reflect  with colleagues.


All of these collaborative elements make ReadyTalk a Winning Workplace (of course, the office bikes, downtown location and the frequent company parties don’t hurt either). What do you like about your company? How do you collaborate?

 

 

P.S. Will you take just a moment to read Inc.’s article about ReadyTalk and share it on your social network? The more shares we get, the greater the presence we have on their site!
