Flux7 never set out to be a traditional company. From its inception, founders Aater Suleman and Ali Hussain knew they wanted to place a priority on corporate culture. Their goal: to create an environment where innovation, transparency, and humbleness would be key drivers in how everyone went about their work, regardless of role. Five years later, corporate culture remains a driving force at Flux7, and the company focuses on reinforcing these values with each new hire.
We are thrilled and humbled to announce today that Flux7 has been named the winner of the 2018 Stratus Award for Cloud Integrator, Small Company from The Business Intelligence Group. The Stratus Awards honor companies, products and people that offer unique solutions that take advantage of cloud technologies.
There is a lot to be said for working remotely. From less stress and lower commuting costs, to greater employee productivity and reduced turnover, remote workforces offer a true win-win. Yet, to ensure that everyone transitions as seamlessly as possible into an 100% remote workforce, onboarding is a critical step. At Flux7 we feel that onboarding and even pre-onboarding help set the stage to ensure that every new employee feels welcome and has a good understanding of the lay of the land. While a lot goes into achieving this goal, we thought we’d share today the Flux7 onboarding process.
Over the years I’ve found myself saying that any given job is comprised of two things: what you do and who you do it with. And, at Flux7, we’ve been able to incorporate the best of each of these into our corporate culture. We are privileged to do challenging and rewarding work alongside some of the brightest, most team-oriented people in the business. How do we achieve this mix? Through a communicative, proactive and collaborative culture starting with this tone being set from the top.
