Growens profile

How do you maintain flexibility & balance for your team?

At Growens, we support work-life balance through our Growens Way of Working (WoW), which enables each one of us to express our talents and full potential regardless of where we work. Thanks to our hybrid approach, we can work from the office, from home, or from anywhere. For some, this means a fully remote setup; others find their most productive environment at our offices. In many cases, it’s a blend of the two. 

We are committed to tailoring solutions that respond to our business and personal needs, in agreement with managers and teammates, allowing us to have a thriving life at work and outside.

How do you ensure autonomy and plan for the future?

Our core values and operating principles guide how we work and direct our jobs to be done.  

We focus on data, internal buy-in, and alignment to establish strategic goals, and from there, each team determines its priorities.
Leadership provides clear information, training, timelines, tools, and structure for employees to work autonomously. 

This process creates a space where leadership can navigate the project and employees are empowered to align their efforts to the organizational goals. 
Deep Work

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

We are committed to increasing diversity in teams. Our choices related to hiring, promotion, and rotation evaluate the diversity (gender, age, ethnicity, background) within teams and seek to maximize diversity where possible.

We also want to make sure we are intentionally structured to support and empower all the people who work with us. We address it through a working group called Grow. Part committee and part community, Grow is a group with open, voluntary, and non-hierarchical membership. It includes people of different nationalities, origins, backgrounds, ages, and job roles who organize and coordinate awareness, engagement, and training activities on DEI issues.

Its mission is to materially increase awareness, dialogue, and transparency on the topics of equality, diversity, inclusion & access to opportunities, thus enabling the organization to provide equal growth and representation for every person. 

Established in 2022, the Grow @ Growens committee has accomplished:
  • Internal analysis to identify employees’ perception on their treatment within the company and identify any critical areas needing attention. 
  • Workshops led by certified external organizations & employees. 
  • Creation of internal communities, networks, and alliances, such as the first LGBTQIA+ community and mentorship programs.
  • Drafting of advanced DEI policies, e.g. on harassment prevention and gender transitions.
  • Collectively increasing our inclusivity competence.

How do you support your team to grow and improve?

At Growens, we promote talent and growth starting from the equal opportunity for growth between individual contributors and managers. We strive to meet the needs of each employee, their aspirations, personal expectations, and goals. We have a development system in place based on performance objectives, which are metrics and numbers-based, and development objectives, allowing individuals to focus their attention, with the attentive support and care of their manager, on renewing, increasing, and acquiring skills throughout the year. The focus on growth is constant and supported by a 360-degree feedback system.

Every year, a customized development plan is created for each employee, stemming from an evaluation system that combines the perspectives of the manager, the evaluated employee, and all the other people the latter works with.

Each manager, in agreement with the employee, defines development plans and the tools to implement for the plan's success. Continuous training, ongoing attention to the employee, and constant feedback are the keys to enabling everyone to grow.
