This is How Our Company Culture Creates a Great Working Environment
We’re thrilled to announce that Will Reed selected us as one of the Top 100 Companies to Work for in 2022. We were chosen from over 500 applicants because of the mission, vision, and culture we have placed at the heart of our business. In addition to being exciting and humbling, this is further proof that the GrowthSpace platform offers real-life results for HR, L&D, and OD professionals – along with employee and organizational goals.
Here’s what Paige Robinson, Founder & CEO of Will Reed had to say about the Top 100 list and our spot on it: “We’ve worked with hundreds of early-stage B2B tech companies who are on a mission to transform the way we live and work. We believe the most successful companies are those like GrowthSpace, who are committed to building human-first cultures that offer meaningful work and support the full employee experience.”
At GrowthSpace, we grow as a team as we grow with our customers. Our five core values lie at the heart of our company culture, so let’s dive in and see what Will Reed saw in GrowthSpace to add us to their prestigious list!
Our mission is to make L&D accessible to all employees, and it would be disingenuous to not offer that same accessibility to our own employees. So any GrowthSpace employee is able to enjoy unlimited sprints, as approved by managers, to continue growing and learning new ways to work. With a huge array of programs to choose from, we’re lucky to grow in whatever ways our career path takes us on with expert help!
Do Whatever it Takes
We aspire to greatness, as a team, and as individuals. Sometimes that means late-night customer calls, quick fixes on the website when something isn’t working right (even on weekends), and simply doing what it takes to get the job done on time and correctly. As a hybrid company, we offer plenty of flexibility in your work hours if you get your work done, so don’t let those late-night calls make you pause – you can simply work when you’re at your best. Just make sure you do whatever it takes!
Get to the Truth
We encourage our employees to think outside the box and always be curious. Part of this is questioning the status quo and bringing different perspectives to the table in order to find the real truth. No matter where you stand in the organization, if you see something that doesn’t resonate or seem right to you, say something. As a growing start-up, some of our best ideas come from individual contributors who are encouraged to act on their suggestions. We check our egos at the door to ensure we’re not blinded by our own preconceived notions of how things should be or work. Employees are also encouraged to offer constructive criticism and praise in what we call “Moments of Growth,” helping us become better versions of ourselves and more helpful to the organization.
As a culture grounded in personal growth and growth in general, we always care about colleagues, customers, prospects, the future of the company, and the future of our careers. We count on and believe in each other, and our “North Star” guides us to do our best for each other and our customers. As a company, we care deeply about our employees and make your time with us worthwhile. And our customers and their employees love us, so we get to have fun along the way.
Own Your Domain
You’re not a GrowthSpacer if you don’t know how to get things done. We work hard so we can provide the best experience to our customers, participants, and experts and expect all GrowthSpace team members to do so. We’re challenged on a day-to-day basis and come up with solutions to problems that are in our “domain,” e.g. what we’re hired to do. We collaborate as much as possible, but at the end of the day, it’s up to us to own our work and the results of that work. It keeps us motivated and pushes us to do our best!
At GrowthSpace, we want to be great. This begins with robust teams, making GrowthSpace a desirable place to work, and encouraging our team to grow and learn to help make us even better. By joining GrowthSpace, you will be joining a multi-disciplinary team that is passionate about solving problems through technology, design, learning and development strategies, and amazing experiences.

About Will Reed
Will Reed is the only executive search firm built exclusively for early-stage founders. Founded in 2015, the firm started by scaling later-stage tech giants like AppDynamics, MongoDB, and Qualtrics. Today, they recruit go-to-market leaders for Seed thru Series B companies backed by leading venture capital firms like a16z, First Round Capital, GGV, Redpoint Ventures, and Sequoia. Will Reed believes early-stage founders are responsible for shaping the future, so they’ve developed a new kind of recruiting playbook, rooted in Talent Infrastructure™, which allows small B2B and B2C tech companies to compete against the giants for top talent.
