Boldly profile

Boldly’s team of talented professionals has left behind the daily commute for the advantages of working remotely, and the flexibility that it allows them. As a market-leading premium business support company, Boldly drives the success of hundreds of dynamic, growing small and medium-size businesses, not-for-profits and international companies with executive assistance, marketing support, project management and more—all offered on a remote basis.

How do you maintain flexibility & balance for your team?

We are a distributed team so all team members work remotely. We are at freedom to live anywhere we choose in the world. We have a flexible approach to when people work to allow for time zones and other factors important to us. Our philosophy is that we are running a marathon and not a sprint so we focus on manageable workloads. We close at noon for summer Fridays.

We are a family-friendly work environment. If you need to be at your child's doctor's appointment or play, there is the flexibility to make that happen. Our leadership all has families and models that behavior. Overall, our focus is on accountability and we trust that each team member will get the work done.

How do you ensure autonomy and plan for the future?

Supporting autonomy is at the core of all of our decisions as a company. Input from all team members is built into our processes on a team and company-wide level. As an example, all team members participate in our quarterly "Assemblée". During this week-long gathering, we bring together all team members from around the globe to collectively create goals and plans on how to achieve them. We use the OKR system to set Objectives and measurable Key Results so we know if we are achieving our goals. In weekly team rituals, all voices are welcomed and encouraged.

How does your company try to hire people from underrepresented groups and improve the diversity of your team?

We believe in equal employment for all and work diligently to ensure decisions are made without prejudice. Our hiring process is based on a written process and documented criteria that removes unconscious bias from our screening and selection process by focusing on skill and experience. As a woman owned business, we are familiar with the challenges women face in the workplace and it is important to us that we maintain an equitable workplace. Our team works to seek out minority groups by connecting with them in various ways such as focused partnerships and social media groups. We work with diverse groups such as military spouses, working mothers, caregivers, and those with unique life situations where working remotely is not just a nice to have but a need. 

How do you support your team to grow and improve?

As a new company, our focus is on the dialogue between team members. We use the OKR methodology to align personal goals with company goals. The core to our work is publishing open source software. This allows those that are involved the opportunity for ongoing professional growth and to build up their own personal profile. 

At our size, we are able to communicate frequently with team members to give feedback, set goals, and support skill development, but we are actively planning for scalable methods that will more broadly support people and make the process transparent.
