Four Lessons Learned from buuteeq about Company Culture

I'm building TINYpulse because I possess a passion to "make employees happier." I often get feedback from both employers and employees who use TINYpulse about what they like, don't like, and other general feedback. Their thoughtful responses and kind words keep us motivated to create a world-class offering that is simple, innovative, and impactful.

Since this week's TINYpulse coincided with Thanksgiving, we decided to allow respondents to share what they were thankful for. I thought it would be fun to create a tag cloud. You can also read the individual responses below.

Inspiration for TINYpulse from Humble Start to Launch

It's been a long, exhilarating, fun, action-packed, soul-searching, fulfilling journey. It really kicked into high gear when Alice, ten-month old Keira, and I started on our careercation earlier this year. We sold everything, stuff everything else into storage and bought one way tickets to New Zealand. We met new people, saw new site, experienced new memories. I know that Keira won't remember any of this, but we have pics to prove it to her when she's older. But at the end of the day, we proved to ourselves that if we saved, were frugal, and planned well, we can take another careercation in the future. The benefits and memories far outweigh the costs and what if's.  

HR Tips From Groundspeak - A Hidden Seattle Success Unearthed

For the first TINYhr interview, I had the pleasure of sitting down with Jeremy Irish of Groundspeak. Groundspeak is one of the most successful and influential Seattle companies a lot of people have never heard of. If you've ever gone geocaching or heard of someone who has, you can thank Groundspeak, which is the parent company of geocaching.com.

Jeff Hu Leads by Sharing at Atomic Recruitment in Shanghai

Jeff Hu is one of the most unassuming and laidback entrepreneurs I've interviewed thus far. He told me that, as a kid, he learned two key lessons. First, his parents raised Jeff to respect, care for and listen to others. Today, he embodies this lesson when he "leads by sharing." Second, his first job was working at The Gap in high school. He found that work was never going to be easy, and realized at an early age the importance of career planning before entering the workforce after college. True to form, Jeff Hu's first job after graduation was as a management consultant. He then worked in startup environments before eventually starting his own venture. At the same time, his wife, Lina Li, started Atomic Recruitment "Atomic" in Shanghai in 2005 with a business partner. After selling his venture and graduating with his MBA, Jeff joined Atomic in 2008. Jeff now heads up business development, marketing and HR operations. Atomic has grown into a recruitment agency that places mid-to-senior level roles for multinationals in China, and 99% of their placements are local Chinese talent. Atomic employs 45 people. Jeff shares that three of Atomic's main competitive advantages are: (1) Professionalism - Because Atomic's clients are foreign multinational corporations, they expect and demand a very high level of service. Since Jeff Hu and many on the team have worked at larger foreign companies, he knows how to meet and exceed the expectations that many domestic operations just can't match. Atomic's professionalism and high level of service is one of the main ways for it to differentiate itself to both clients and candidates.
