Tip of the Week – “Build a Strong Culture”

J0435893Building a strong culture is important for any business, particularly companies experiencing growth or facing unique challenges.

Dixon Schwabl’s culture focuses on a commitment to the individual employee, by empowering them from “day one” of their career at the agency. Our 75 employees have access to unique benefits, including a “Make It Happen Day” to dedicate to the not-for-profit organization of their choice, Birthdays Off, a new health plan recommended by employees, and profit-sharing. 

The office environment  includes a slide from the second floor to the main lobby, a koi pond with a waterfall, and seasonal decorations—we celebrate everything!  Babies, marriages, promotions, new business—any occasion is a milestone. Our agency rock band “JobOrder” had its debut performance in the main lobby, and Dixon Schwabl’s “Green Team” helped eliminate the use of plastic water bottles and bottled water served at meetings—the team installed a water filter in kitchen, and water is now served in pitchers.

Consider your company culture when you begin to experience the growth that comes with working hard and facing those unique challenges that come with being an entrepreneur.

    Two years ago I had the opportunity to take a tour of Dixon Schwabl and it left a lasting impression.  Aside from the stunning beauty of the work environment, the employees were all very friendly and gracious in sharing information about the work place and their responsibilities. As a designer, it’s seems like a place one could do their best work. Advertised opportunities seem few and open positions are historically filled by word of mouth. Any advice on how to get a foot in the door?

  2. Our work environment inspires creative thinking– even a Dixon Schwabl rock band that rehearses on site!  Having a bright, lively workplace brings out the best in everyone, promoting collaborative thinking and new approaches for employees and clients.  Thank you for your comments—I appreciate your interest in the agency, and please forward me your resume.  Lauren Dixon
