Prodigal welcomes every new remote or in-office employee in every channel —including with a swag package by mail — and ensures we meet our remote employees in person when we can. The best way to show employees we appreciate them is through valuing their ideas and inputs, both in terms of compensation and in daily conversations. That's a tenet of our efforts to grow: We know the best ideas can come from everywhere and anywhere. Rapid promotions and spot bonuses make these values clear. Of course, we also offer all the fun stuff, including team outings and daily "Tacos" in our gratitude channel to share colleague appreciation!
This year, we are working toward hiring a head of recruiting who can elevate our recruiting practices. We know we can find the diversity of background and lived experiences in our hires that every company should prioritize. Aside from this, our workplace is global — we hire from anywhere and take great care to hire people who can bring additional perspectives to our conversations. Perhaps our best push toward equity involves supporting our employees’ ability to live healthy, full lives, something we’re always committed to improving through both their relationships with Prodigal and Prodigal’s relationship with the world. Specifically, we have recently hired two women engineering leaders and two women marketing leaders. Today, two-thirds of the members of our business development team are women.
Learning exceptionally fast alongside brilliant people is not an experience everyone gets to have in life. Because of both its growth stage and its prevailing open, positive attitude, our company is able to support employees as they take on new intellectual pursuits and accomplish their life and career goals.
Collaboration. There is not a single employee who won't work with another closely to ensure the job gets done and that we achieve our goals and mission. From the big picture to the little details, we work through it all as a team. Consequently, employees are empowered and inspired to take a team-member perspective first.
