Culture is more than free-lunch Fridays and Legos all around the office. We’ve got some sports freaks and some gamer geeks. Some are into graphic novels, others play in local bands. And office dogs are our constant companions.
But here’s where it gets good:
- Core Hours: To reduce the “real quick question” interruption habit and promote flow state, we reserve certain hours when developers go deep, designers design, and copywriters search for that perfect phrase.
- Level 10 Meetings: Same time. Same agenda. Every week. No kidding. Plus a daily standup at 8.
- Accountability Chart: For knowing who’s in charge of what and directing communication accordingly. This prevents unnecessary CCing, keeping the signal high.
- Own vs. Rent: If your life is for rent, you don’t learn to buy, or buy-in. Zenman people don’t just rent office space. They commit.
- Retrospectives: Every two weeks. Are you a happy face, a squiggly mouth or a sad face? Why? Zenman’s health depends on hearing what you have to say.
