We’re honored to have been named one of Inc. Best Workplaces 2022! This award emphasizes the importance of building a strong company culture — one that redefines the workplace and continues to enrich it. Honorees are determined by a company benefit review and an employee engagement survey.
At Hologram, we know that our core values and asynchronous work style are the driving force behind our thriving remote-first environment.
“Inc. Best Workplaces represents building an iconic culture that empowers our employees, and we’re grateful to be recognized for this award. At Hologram, our values of ownership, transparency, and mindfulness are key to how we build our remote-first culture. They’re reflected in our day-to-day work and guide us as we aim to foster a productive, supportive, and inclusive work environment for our team,” said Chief People Officer Clara Kridler.
We empower team members through ownership
Ownership means that all team members are empowered to make decisions and improvements for our collective success. We utilize a decision making framework (DMF) process that allows anyone to propose changes and improvements, provide their rationale, and seek input from other stakeholders. We also employ project management tools like Asana for team members to take ownership of their tasks and collaborate with colleagues across the company.
We provide access to information for transparency
Transparency means that all business data is readily accessible, and employees work without ambiguity. This requires diligent documentation, and we use Notion to ensure our team members have access to data and processes. The DMF process is also an important source of documentation, as it provides team members with visibility into all business decisions. Weekly “Town Hall” meetings allow teams to align and share progress and key business data with the entire company. We also have a Slack channel dedicated to asking questions of our leadership team — anything from suggesting new benefits to seeking the rationale behind processes.
We approach everything with mindfulness
Mindfulness means approaching each task with an open mind, seeking diverse perspectives, and cultivating conscientiousness. We act on this value by providing multiple avenues for providing meaningful feedback, including Lattice for performance management, the HeyTaco Slack integration for public praise, and more. Our continuous DEI efforts are also a reflection of this value — we can only deliver a more connected world if our team accurately reflects the diverse and unique communities we are building for.
We embrace an asynchronous work style
All of our values are embodied by our asynchronous work style. Working “async” allows our team members to exercise mindfulness and ownership in working the hours that are best for their lifestyle while still fulfilling job-related responsibilities. It also allows us to take even more steps to encourage work-life balance for our team members. We employ “Flexible Fridays,” in which no meetings are held, and employees choose to work, partially work (what we call "Low Power Mode"), or take time off based on their needs and schedule. We offer unlimited PTO and mandate mental health days.
