Personalities and experiences of employees create the culture of an organization. One person cannot create a culture alone. If most of the people in an organization are very outgoing, the culture is likely to be open and sociable. If many artifacts depicting the company’s history and values are in evidence throughout the company, people value their history and culture.
At Vox, to make our staff think better of themselves, the work environment is friendly instead of hostile, open instead of closed, supportive instead of discouraging, relaxing instead of rigid and inclusing instead of divisive.
We believe that if you want ideas to flourish, the work environment must be fun, when people aren't having any fun, they seldom produce goodwill. People who have fun doing what they're doing, do it better. Fun, like enthusiasm, is contagious and has a snowball effect that helps generate good work over and over again throughout the organization.
Indeed, at Vox we create this kind of an environment, an environment where people enjoy coming to work every day, where there is a feeling of camaraderie and good fellowship, where people attack their work with alacrity and confidence, where they like the people they work with, where they think of themselves as partners instead of employees, where in short it is fun to work.
