Our Work Environment
MyZone works in a results-only work environment (ROWE) so you are provided flexibility in setting your own hours and working from home. Additional benefits of ROWE include no tracking of sick days or vacation time. We were inspired by Dan Pink’s Ted Talk on the science of motivation, and believe that an intrinsically motivated team is the best way to solve the problems of the 21st century (ie: we don’t use carrots or sticks!). We are experts on working remotely, here are some of our team members sharing some tips!
Our Core Values
We have 3 simple but powerful core values:
Have fun: We want more free time and to have more control over our lives and careers, this means having more freedom through a flexible working environment: working wherever we want and whenever we want.
Be Flexible: Be ready to change with the times and to move at the speed of the business. One day we are heading in one particular direction, the next day we can flip it entirely around. We constantly assess how relevant we are in a rapidly changing world/marketplace and take action accordingly.
Make it better: We always ask ourselves why we are doing what we are doing, we take ownership of everything we are involved in, we constantly tinker and improve our processes living in a state of “permanent beta”, constantly thinking how can we further make things better around us. No task is done without first asking “why am I doing this? Could this be automated? Outsourced? Improved?
