Here at Radial, we believe that workplace happiness starts with caring about the needs of your team. Herzberg's Two-Factor Theory explains that meeting your employee's needs is the first step to maximizing motivation.
Radial always values communication and transparency in the workplace. This is what our newest intern, Grace Feist, has taken away from our company culture so far.
As a web development company, one of our challenges is explaining to prospective customers what it is we do. It’s challenging because even though we live in a high-tech world, most people still don’t understand the powerful technology behind the applications they interact with daily. They hear “web”, they think “websites.” What we do is much more complex than that.
There are a lot of major responsibilities involved in running a company. For our small business, there are often more responsibilities than there are people. While we do not pretend to have all the answers, we have learned a lot about what to do to help your team stay productive and engaged while juggling lots of responsibilities. Here are a few tips.

Here at Radial, we have developed several communication strategies to ensure that our clients’ products ship on time and meet their business needs. We are sharing them so you can learn how we communicate.
It’s easy for an open office space to develop a negative atmosphere. One employee starts complaining about a particular piece of tech or a legacy codebase, and everyone in earshot piles on. The result: A 15-minute whinge-fest (look it up) with no clear gains and some definite downsides.
It’s not news that women in tech often suffer from a lack of confidence. It’s also no surprise that a lack of confidence translates into worse outcomes for women. This could range from lower pay to fewer promotions.
Here at Radial, we work hard to maintain a strong company culture, focused on our core values. Culture is so important to us that we sometimes say we are a culture company, not a software company (more on that soon). We want everything that happens within our office to reflect our core values.
