PONE, India–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Talentica Software, the world’s largest startup software developer, today announced an innovative Distributed Work model for the company’s 450+ employees. Leveraging two years of work-from-home experience as a result of the global pandemic, Talentica has decided to embrace a remote working model that aims to maximize employee flexibility and productivity, support the recruitment of top talent, and bond with colleagues. to reinforce. The company’s creative Distributed Work model includes detailed strategies to address the challenges of remote technical teamwork.
“After nearly two decades of working with employees who came into the office every day, it was a huge shift to suddenly have the entire company work from home, which we have continued for the past two years,” said Nitin Shimpi, CEO and co – founder of Talentica Software. “We focus on hiring top engineers who are self-motivated, work independently and are familiar with documentation and asynchronous work. For example, we discovered that if our employees have the right tools to work remotely, their productivity and job satisfaction increase. At the same time, we also learned that there are some challenges, such as building strong trust among team members, facilitating cross-team interactions, and maintaining a consistent culture across the company. We have considered these and other lessons in our distributed work policy, which includes a comprehensive set of strategies that address potential problems with an element of fun.”
The pandemic has changed the way people think about work. Flexibility has become the main driver for employees. A Topia 2022 Adapt survey found that 94% of employees believe they should be able to work wherever they want, as long as they get their work done. The survey also found that 41% of employees would change jobs based on the flexibility to work from home. That’s why remote working policies are now essential to attracting and retaining top talent.
“Talentica has always had an employee-centric culture, so it was important to give employees a voice in determining how the workplace should be set up in the future,” said Anindita Dey, People Group Head for Talentica Software. “We surveyed employees about whether they would prefer to continue working remotely, or a hybrid model, or return to the office full-time. The majority of employees said a 100% remote working model was the most attractive. The results of the study were an important factor in the decision to permanently switch to a distributed work model. The new model also provides flexibility for those who prefer to work in the office, as we will continue to provide that option.”
Talentica Software has received many industry awards for workplace innovation, business growth and technology expertise. Most recently, the prestigious Great Place to Work® selected Talentica Software for India’s Top 75 Great Mid-Size Workplaces 2022.
“Being Named a Great Place to Work® during this challenging time demonstrates the strength of our culture and commitment to our employees,” said Shimpi. “Our new distributed work policy builds on the values and processes underlying our success and creatively applies them to a remote work environment. We look forward to embracing a Distributed Work model with innovative strategies, expanding our organization with the best talent.”
Below are some of Talentica’s “New Ways of Working,” which are featured in the company’s Distributed Work Handbook and carefully designed to remotely replicate the company’s culture and values.
Personal on board – When new employees join Talentica, they participate in a two-week personal orientation at the Talentica office. These structured, face-to-face interactions with Talentica engineers and leadership provide a critical foundation for understanding the work environment, team dynamics, and corporate culture.
teamwork – Quarterly workcations with the destination selected by each team help Talentica team members get to know each other and build interpersonal relationships, enhancing the employee’s connection to the workplace.
Guild stays – Guilds are Talentica engineers who share the same passion/skill. In addition to Team Workcations, Talentica also offers Guild Staycations and special guild channels on slack. Guilds can come together for Staycations, which provide individuals with the opportunity to build interpersonal relationships between teams, exchange ideas and knowledge, and inspire other guilds to excel in their chosen areas.
Fellowship Facilitation – Camaraderie promotes collaboration between colleagues and keeps employees on good terms during challenging work assignments. An important way to build camaraderie is through informal interactions. Talentica facilitates informal interactions through platforms such as a virtual cafeteria, coffee chats with leaders, donut bots, etc.
Culture Ambassadors – Employees are encouraged to become a ‘Pro-Talentican’ culture ambassador by holding hackathons, meetups, sports competitions, attending startup events, volunteering for organizational initiatives, organizing house parties, etc.
“Our business is growing rapidly – we currently have over 350 software developer job openings,” adds Shimpi. “To continue attracting and retaining top talent, it is therefore essential that we have a modern, agile work model that meets the expectations of top talent and can keep up with the rapid growth of our company. Our new Distributed Work model and new strategies will help us scale, while preserving the values that have made our company successful for nearly two decades.”
