We provide ample opportunity for personal development. Because growth and evolution are essential to progression. At the personal, team and organisational levels. After all, the growth of a team or an organisation depends on the individual and collective development of the people within it. We learn from each other and with each other, so that the whole is always more than the sum of its parts. Which is why we say that one plus one has to make at least three.
Databalance has an open culture, where everyone can contribute. We’re open to each other’s views, and we challenge each other on a substantive basis. Not a hierarchical basis. Every member of a team has their own tasks and responsibilities. And the sum of all the team members’ tasks and responsibilities ultimately defines the customer’s experience. Just as a celebrated chef’s ability to surprise, amaze and entertain diners depends on everyone working in the kitchen.
For productive, enjoyable teamwork, it’s important to know what you can expect from one another. That’s not so much a question of rules as a question of culture, the way that team members all accept responsibility and exchange feedback. We therefore favour an informal, open style of teamwork, based on shared core values, such as ‘speak up’, ‘share the load’ and ‘you touch it, you own it’. That approach and philosophy makes for a strong team, where there’s room for everyone, on the basis of quality, content and expertise.
