Earlier this Summer, DriverReach was honored to be announced as a Finalist for the 2019 Tech Culture Awards. Hosted by Powderkeg, an Indianapolis-based tech networking platform, the aim of this year’s inaugural Tech Culture Awards was to shine a light on one of the most innovative spaces in tech right now: human resources.
The 2019 Tech Culture Awards culminated last week as the Powderkeg team brought together the ultimate event for some of the most fascinating HR tech where company award winners were announced. The DriverReach team was honored to be named a winner in three categories including: Sales and Marketing Team, Product Team, and Mission, Purpose, and Values.
A Peek Into What Fuels the DriverReach Culture!
Curious what a day-in-the-life of a DriverReach employee looks like? Inside Indiana Business recently asked our team to share what makes our people (not just our CDL driver recruiting technology!) so special:
Why is culture important to your company?
Developing a company culture that our team can be proud of is something we strive for each and every day at DriverReach. Culture impacts how we feel on our way to work, the meaning we put behind the work, and how we communicate with one another. Culture is what makes it possible for us to successfully run at the speed of light without running ourselves into the ground. Every member of the team across the organization, regardless of their position, can expect to engage in caring, candid, and empowering conversations that lead to results every single day.
What is your most creative culture initiative?
We all spend nearly one-third of our lives at work, so it’s important to enjoy the people we’re around. Having fun while working is very important to us at DriverReach. Some of our creative energy goes into the funny "celebrations" or harmless pranks we play on one another. From the top-down, we have a great sense of humor, so we like to play it up. We have giant cardboard cutouts of Jeremy, our CEO, and Steve, our CGO, placed in different areas around the office. We dress them up and make videos with them – it's absolutely hilarious.
How does culture fit into your talent recruitment and retention efforts?
Culture completely shapes how we meet candidates and treat them from the beginning. It's important to us that we treat them with respect and engage with everyone we meet. Having transparent conversations at the beginning of the hiring process gives both sides the ability to truly evaluate if we are a match. After hire, we engage new people and deep dive with them as quickly as possible so that they know we are true to our word. This builds trust, respect, and loyalty – all of which are fundamental to DriverReach's long-term success.
