Why Synctera IS A MOST LOVED WORKPLACE®

Systemic Collaboration

EMPLOYEES COLLABORATE THROUGHOUT OUR COMPANY BY …

Synctera, while being a remote company, blends a number of tools for open collaboration, such as Slack, Google Suite, and Zoom with numerous opportunities to spend time together in person. In addition to an annual All Hands, we hold team and project-based off-sites as well as frequent cross-functional collaboration at Wework offices for those that are based near a central location.

Positive Vision of the Future

EMPLOYEES AT OUR COMPANY HAVE A POSITIVE VISION FOR THE FUTURE BECAUSE …

It’s extremely important that Synctera employees feel like they are aware of, and involved in, all of the important work we’re doing as a company. Our mission, which helps support companies of all sizes embed finance and banking, has real social impact that is felt by all of us. To ensure that employees feel supported and engaged, we provide them with growth and development opportunities that assist with career progression, and insights into our key metrics, including revenue, so that everyone is on the same page and understands both the ups and the downs of the market.

Company Respect

WE SHOW RESPECT AND ENSURE THAT ALL VOICES ARE HEARD AND IDEAS ARE VALUED THROUGHOUT THE COMPANY BY …

We aim for all Synctera employees to feel heard, valued and respected at every turn. To make sure that this happens, we refer back to our company values often, specifically the notion to “connect” and to “share”. The encouragement of connecting and sharing isn’t just focused on the day-to-day of the business. For example, our commitment to Diversity Equity and Inclusion is an important driver of the human connection that we believe is required to be a unique and special company to work for. A safe environment for all is essential to bring the best out of everyone, which fuels both the personal and business growth we need to succeed.

Company Support / Killer Outcomes

WE SUPPORT OUR EMPLOYEES IN ACHIEVING THEIR PROFESSIONAL AND PERSONAL GOALS BY …

If our employees feel like they’re achieving their own goals and feeling successful, this means that company goals have a better chance at being achieved. Synctera’s management has a coaching mindset that encourages continual learning and curiosity, so that we feel as if we’re all on a shared trajectory. To make sure that employees find our two annual performance conversations helpful, we have department specific career ladders, quarterly OKRs and other tools and processes in place to support ongoing career discussions with the People Team.

Alignment of Values

OUR COMPANY’S VALUES ARE ALIGNED WITH OUR EMPLOYEES BECAUSE …

To make sure that our company values are aligned with employees, we involved them in the entire process of creating them from scratch. That early involvement made sure that their personal values were woven together to put the human aspect of the business front and center. We know that the way to support that is to create a safe, effective and authentic work environment, and our values highlight the specific behaviors that encourage that focus on humanity.
