In today's competitive job market, finding the right company in financial services to build your career in can be a daunting task.
But for those seeking a workplace that values collaboration, embraces a positive vision for the future, aligns with your values, promotes diversity and inclusion, supports personal and professional growth, and offers a unique range of benefits, look no further than Seismic. As the Regional Vice President for this sales enablement software, I am thrilled to share why I believe Seismic stands out as the best company to work for.
Collaboration is in Our DNA
Seismic is the global leader in enablement, and collaboration is woven into the fabric of our company. Our employees collaborate throughout the organisation, and this collaboration extends beyond their immediate teams. This is not just a slogan; it's a way of life at Seismic. As someone leading a sales team, I have personally experienced how the spirit of collaboration permeates our daily work.
At Seismic, we understand that the best ideas often emerge when diverse minds come together.Our products, which enable organisations to better engage with their customers, are a testament to this commitment to collaboration. We believe in creating products that empower teams to work together seamlessly, which is why collaboration is at the core of our products.
A Positive Vision for the Future
One of the reasons Seismic is the best company to work for is the unwavering confidence our employees have in the company's future. According to our bi-annual employee survey, an impressive 85% of our team members believe Seismic is poised for substantial success in the coming years. This high level of confidence reflects the remarkable growth and achievements that Seismic has experienced.
We owe this positive vision to the transparent and authentic communication from our executive leadership, which includes monthly All Hands meetings and town halls.
This open dialogue fosters trust and alignment throughout the organisation, ensuringthat every member of ourteam feels connected to our shared goals.
Values Aligned with Employees
At Seismic, our company values are not just words on a wall; they are deeply integrated into our daily work and culture. These values were developed in collaboration with our employees, who helped shape them based on the actions they were already displaying or aspired to achieve in their work.
To reinforce these values, we regularly highlight stories of how they come to life within our organisation during All Hands meetings and internal Slack channels. This ongoing conversation ensures that our values remain a guiding force in everything we do.
Respect, Inclusion,and Feedback
Respect and inclusion are not optional at Seismic; they are fundamental to our company's DNA. We have made a firm commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, reflecting the diverse backgrounds of our employees, customers, and partners. We actively track our progress against three-year goals, share representation metrics transparently, and support nine communities of belonging (employee resource groups).
Moreover, our all-employee survey provides a confidential platform for feedback. This data is used to develop action plans for continuous improvement at both the company and team levels, ensuring that every voice is heard and every idea is valued.
Supporting Personal and Professional Growth
Seismic's mission is to "ignite growth," not just for our customers but also for our employees. To support this growth, we have introduced a performance management strategy grounded in continuous feedback. Additionally, every employee has the opportunity to invest $1,000 USD per calendar year in external development opportunities, furthering their learning and career growth.
Our mentorship program facilitates peer-to-peer coaching, allowing employees to collect skills that will propel their future success. We believe in building a career lattice, where our team members continually gather skills to ensure they remain agile and adaptable in the ever-changing business landscape.
CEO as a Role Model
Our CEO and co-founder, Doug Winter, serves as a shining example of Seismic's values. Doug embodies our commitment to understanding the perspectives of our employees and customers, championing excellence, fostering inclusivity, and celebrating our collective successes.
