As the owner of an IT recruiting company, I firmly believe that a work environment plays an instrumental part in shaping your employees and further helps create your office culture. There are a number of elements within creating a work environment. First, there’s the actual office location. This can provide energy or even take away from it if your company is located in a barren office park in the middle of nowhere. This is why AVID Technical Resources, one of the nation’s fastest growing IT staffing companies, is located in the heart of Boston – smack in the middle of the city’s financial district. We took this a step further and purchased an office condo on the first floor, just above eye-level of those on the outside, yet still close enough to the ground level to see people pass bye and further create the feel of energy.
Another variable to creating a proper work environment is dress code. We have all seen the images of dot com start-up companies. Many of these snapshots show people in jeans and tee shirts playing ping pong or foosball in their office break rooms. The pictures give us a sense of reckless spending and casual work environments. It promotes free spirit without rules or boundaries. As much as you want to create a fun/healthy work environment, there needs to be a professional tone. By trading the jeans in for business pants, you’re naturally prompting your IT recruiters Boston to step up their game. Exchanging tee shirts for shirts and ties and will immediately prompt a change in professional atmosphere and mindset of your technical recruiters and IT staffing salespeople. Simply put, dress the part, play the part, be the part.
