Last month, we shared with you why 2020 marks a special anniversary for Watry Design. This month, we’re celebrating one of the secrets of our success: our company culture.
Company culture is more than a declaration or a piece of paper – it’s something your team believes in. Watry Design has thrived for 45 years in large part because we have worked hard to create an environment that inspires.
The team at Watry Design is passionate about what we do, but taking pride in our work is only one of the magic ingredients. The others? Laughter, camaraderie and fun. We call it, “Fun, Love and Donuts,” representing hard work by driven people who take their work more seriously than they take themselves.
Rising to the occasion; facing down deadlines with a smile, bad joke and often a tone-deaf song and celebrating our successes (often with donuts) form the bedrock of the Watry family.
Maintaining this culture means hiring people who will thrive within it. Not only do we vet potential new team members for their talent and skillset, but we also carefully evaluate how well they’ll fit into our culture.
Creating this kind of environment isn’t the outcome of a board meeting, a memo or checking a box on a to-do list. It’s the result of 45 years of building and nurturing a set of ideals that our company lives by, a culture that defines who we are and who we want to be.
