3 ways to maintain a startup culture while expanding

Posted by John Mathewson on June 1, 2015

The great thing about working for a startup company — especially in the tech industry — is the freedom it affords you while doing your job. It feels looser and more relaxed than a normal 9-to-5 position, all while you work toward the same goal of success.

When that success eventually finds your business, it is likely to grow and expand in ways you might not have anticipated. If you want to keep the startup vibe of the workplace even when you go more corporate, there are plenty of ways you can do so.

Here are some tips that will help you out:

  • Plan team building exercises: There should always be an effort to get employees to bond with each other. By planning out community building exercises and events, coworkers can get to know each other better and really foster a sense of belonging in the workplace.
  • Keep the departments small: People often respond better to working in smaller groups, so you can keep each department manageable by simply breaking people up based on different projects. That way, no matter how much the company grows, it will not lose that small feeling.
  • Offer lines of communication: Your company was founded on the ideas that came from your coworkers, so it is important that they always have a line open to each part of the company. Communication is essential to a business' success, so always be ready to hear new thoughts.
