Giftbit's 8 Cultural Principles
We weave these principles through our culture.
Each principle gives perspective to help us assess our behaviour and decisions.
Exemplifying these principles is how people succeed at Giftbit.
What is culture?
What we do is who we are, so we take great care in the things we do.
Our behaviors show the beliefs and values that operate in the company. Our way of doing things is company culture.
When culture is aligned with strategy, the culture equips people to make good judgements more quickly, with less oversight. Good culture creates good growth for people and for the business.
While Giftbit's culture has established ways, we know that these ways are not perfect or fixed. Our people are diverse and dynamic. Change is constant, so we cultivate Giftbit's work culture continually. We see it as an ongoing effort and process.
We have a practice of candor & kindness
We focus action on the job to be done
We are earnestly open-minded
Our work supports success and prosperity in the fullness of our lives
We cultivate trust & collaboration with each other
We adopt a growth mindset
We craft our work
We lead ourselves and each other
Note: The values and exemplary behaviours that underly these principles come from the Giftbit team and what they have said about Giftbit's work culture. When we sought to better articulate our cultural principles, we took inspiration and direct quotations from numerous sources, such as: Principles by Ray Dalio, some interviews of Tobias Lütke on Shopify’s culture, The Mind of the Leader by Rasmus Hougaard and Jacqueline Carter, content from Reboot.io, What You Do Is Who You Are: How to Create Your Business Culture by Ben Horowitz and Mindset by Carol Dweck.
