Here at SafetyCulture, we’re driven by a strong mission: to provide a mobile-first tool that can ultimately save people’s lives. In the spirit of giving, we’ve established a new initiative: SafetyCulture Connect.
Six months before I joined the team at SafetyCulture I was finishing my final year of high school wondering how and where I could get a job as a software engineer. Townsville, not being known for its exciting tech industry, led me to believe that in order to start a career I would have to leave.
You don’t need to read SafetyCulture’s corporate values on the office wall to get a sense of who they are as an organization. It shines through in every conversation. I spent a week with the team soaking up the atmosphere of their whole-of-workforce forum.
Pre-SafetyCulture era: “They can’t pay me enough to stay…I don’t feel like I’m really making an impact…It’s just not worth it anymore…I don’t feel rewarded…Its stifling my soul, I just don’t feel passionate anymore …”
Up until ten months ago my career had been primarily in the world of corporate IT, where IT is seen as a cost of doing business. When you work in this kind of environment it is not uncommon for the link between your day-to-day work and the customer to become invisible.
