Dun & Bradstreet Is the Poster Child for Working Smarter (and Its Company Culture Proves It)
What do most people do before making important business decisions? They may crunch some numbers, look at their options, pick one, and hope for the best.
But the team at Dun & Bradstreet isn’t most people.
Founded in 1841 and based in Short Hills, NJ with offices all around the world, Dun & Bradstreet helps clients make data-driven business decisions using its state-of-the-art, real-time software, which collects and analyzes custom data from over 30,000 sources and updates over five million times per day.
Dun & Bradstreet isn’t simply handing out data; it’s revolutionizing the way brands and businesses make decisions. “We can help any organization on the face of this Earth become more profitable and more successful—and mitigate risk,” says Delivery Consultant Trevor Shelbo.
How does a company like this keep its employees constantly bringing their A-game? Dun & Bradstreet preaches a strong culture of workplace productivity. But that doesn’t mean making its employers work faster; it means enabling its team members to work smarter.
To do this, Dun & Bradstreet has a number of initiatives to fuel its employees: Team members are allowed to work remotely from wherever they want, and the company has a Recovery Committee dedicated to bringing health, wellness, and nutrition initiatives to the office. The Austin office even has a highly sought-after nap room to allow people to relax.
Combined with this approach is the company’s commitment to hiring people with a diversity of interests, hobbies, and talents. “We cherish collaborative personalities at Dun & Bradstreet—people who are willing to work with different teams and resolve any issues with those people and bring new ideas to the table,” explains Marketing Manager Kate Rogers.
“Dun & Bradstreet is a whole world of opportunity,” agrees Eyana Carballo, Chief of Staff for the Office of the Global Head of Customer Experience.
