Playfulness and Connection Values matching and inspiration are
key to our culture.
The Open Collective culture differs a great deal from traditionally organized companies. We
think each person is able to do an excellent job without being told what to do by a line
manager. We respect the input of all those involved
and by being open to feedback, we continuously improve and innovate our solutions. While we
work seriously to achieve the best possible result for ourselves and the customers, we like
to do so in a way that is both meaningful
and playful at the same time. Playfulness helps us not to stress out. Stress we believe is
the biggest obstacle for both personal and professional growth and it also inhibits
innovation and an open mindset. To give purpose
to what we do energizes us provide the best solution to the customer, to improve our
workplace, and help to contribute to make this world a better place. To strengthen all this,
we work with self-managing teams. We strongly
believe that the best way to meet our purpose is to work together and get the best (out of
our) employees. We like to attract colleagues that have an entrepreneurial spirit, who take
full authority in their roles and are ambassadors
of what we stand for. We have chosen a self-managing methodology to build our organization.
We at Open Collective choose not to have hierarchy, not to have job titles, no targets set
by the directors. Instead, people have roles
and work in self- managing teams, called circles. The purpose of each circle is related to
the company purpose, and the purpose of each role serves the circle purpose. Employees have
the authority to fill in their roles the
way they feel is best and are free to give up roles an accept alternative or additional
roles. This gives everybody at Open Collective free reign over their own career within the
possibilities of our company. Authority is distributed
amongst all employees. As all this differs a lot from the commonplace culture, we put habits
and rituals in place to help us remind to really execute what we believe in. Our culture is
designed to shift away from stress and
fear to a more courageous and creative workplace.
We are flexible
Work-life balance is key to keeping us happy. We will do anything in our ability to make
sure your schedules meet your needs. Open Collective offers a
generous amount of days off (34). This will
help restore your work-life balance.
Flexibility is there when you'd like to spend more time with the family or simply
shorten your commutes.
Our people come first
before customers or shareholders. We take personal and professional development very
serious. During the recruitment process we will explore
your personal talents. Throughout your career we provide coaching to enable you to
shift to the courage to fully develop your talents. Your professional development
will be boosted by cooperation and challenging jobs. The
focus is on artificial intelligence and you can select your own training.
We limit our ecological footprint
as much as possible. We will mostly communicate remotely Our customers are challenged by
us to provide remote work
options for our professionals. We stimulate our employees to drive an electric
powered car. We dedicate part of our
profit to environmental charity selected by our employees and customers.
Inspired innovation is our slogan.
