Culture does not equal foosball

Culture is a precious flower that thrives or wilts depending on how much tender love and care it's given. It’s not a foosball table or Wine Fridays (which we have), it’s not the bike team or social committee (which we have too). Culture is the pulse of your organization. Like a brand, culture is the sum of an organization and the initial feeling you get when you think of working there. In our case, we hope it's the cool, supported, oh boy I love my job kind of feeling.

Like bacteria, culture grows in the right environment

We've always kept culture at our core. It’s the lifeblood of our company and why we're able to consistently knock things out of the park. Culture is always hard to put your finger on but we’ve put together a collection of clues that may help demonstrate ours:

Values have to align. Yours, ours, everyones. These ones are simple but near and dear to our hearts.

We at ZGM are committed to ensuring that all people, across age, race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, faith and physical abilities, feel welcome and are represented in our decision making. We promise our staff, clients, and communities that we will never stop learning, sharing, and working toward becoming a more equitable organization.

As part of our dedication to the commitment, we are constantly receptive to feedback from our community. We are always open to being called in and corrected to become more inclusive in our language and practices.

Working from our strengths

Culture matters because we work so closely together. Some people call it collaboration. We just call it working. And working closely with people is a whole lot easier when you understand their strengths. So we lean into Clifton Strengths—it focuses on our talents (the ways in which we naturally think, feel, and behave) and turns them into strengths. Makes sense. And makes us more productive.

So if you work here, you’ll know your Strengths. And everyone else's.

And if you’re a company who would also like to know your strengths, our HR Director, Lori, is Gallop certified and is always willing to run the program for groups or individuals.

I bet we'd get along famously.
