Netmail, an award-winning email management software company, today announced that it will be attending the 22nd Annual Gathering of Games Conference in St. Louis, Missouri, on September 3-5, 2014. Not to be confused with the popular Game of Thrones television series about hate, greed and the fight for control, the Annual Gathering of Games is where the open-book management community comes together to learn, share, and celebrate the principles and practices of The Great Game of Business.
Unlike the values depicted in the Game of Thrones, the open-book management culture at Netmail encourages openness and honesty and business-driven dialogue. It is exactly that kind of transparency that has helped Stephanie Greenshields, Head of Talent Recruitment at Netmail, attract, acquire and retain top players for Netmail for almost two decades. “Thanks to the principles of open-book management, the Netmail team is a tight-knit family of passionate, innovative, curious and courageous individuals,” says Greenshields.
Regardless of the size of your organization, Greenshields advocates using your company’s culture to promote the organization as a place where top talent wants to work. Besides promoting a no bullsh*t atmosphere at Netmail, another important aspect of the open-book culture at the Canadian-based software company is the fact that the employees have a financial stake in the company through an employee share ownership program.
“We are 100% employee-owned,” says Greenshields proudly. “When employees become owners (which happens after three months of continuous work at Netmail), their commitment to the company often changes, and that gets reflected in the work they do—whether it’s developing our email management software or taking care of our clients—it all leads to increased levels of profitability for everyone.”
In addition to owning part of the small giant, employee-shareholders at Netmail also enjoy perks like secure bike racks, onsite showers and a towel service, a well-stocked KEGerator, and of course numerous games like billiards, foosball, and a PS3 gaming console. For its commitment to providing an exceptional work environment for its employees, the company was also named one of Canada's Top 50 Small and Medium Employers for 2014.
