Request is a company that develops applications to help crypto companies manage their cryptocurrency. The company operates fully remotely, and its team consists of 35 employees. They felt it was the perfect opportunity to re-evaluate their values and involve newly recruited individuals in the process. After creating a culture print using Valuebeat, the team members engaged in a conversation that helped them define their values and create a shared understanding of what mattered to them.
Request already had some values in place, but they wanted to review and redefine them to ensure they were still relevant to the company's growth and direction. They needed to involve all team members in the process to make sure everyone felt heard and valued.
Request held a three-day meeting in Lisbon, where their team members discussed and decided on the company's values. They used Valuebeat to help them get the conversation started by sending out a culture print to all team members. The results showed clear differences between people who had been with the company for three years and people who had just joined. They also showed differences between departments, such as salespeople and tech people. This data was crucial in driving the conversation and focusing on the areas where they needed to discuss more.
After the meeting, Request held an asynchronous workshop using a mirror board with each value. This workshop allowed team members to identify what they see in their day-to-day work and what they don't see. They also identified a person in the company that represents each value. The team members added comments, and they could agree or disagree with each other on the post-its. Based on this feedback, Request defined what each value means to them and how they can apply them in their daily work.
The new values that Request defined were freedom, integrity, learning, and ambition. The culture print helped them understand what mattered to their team members and allowed them to focus on the areas where they needed to improve. The asynchronous workshop helped them create a shared understanding of what each value means and how they can apply these values in their daily work. This process helped them create a culture where everyone feels involved and valued.
