Freesponsibility: The Perk You’ve Never Known You Needed, But Can Get Here
Spredfast is on a mission to connect brands with consumers. More specifically, the company is providing clients with social media marketing platforms that make monitoring brand engagement easy. By offering deeper data insights, Spredfast is helping customers reach bigger audiences—and ultimately keep consumers happier.
Spredfast is steadily making strides in the industry and growing into different areas around the globe. While its headquarters are based in Austin, Spredfast now has offices in New York City, London, and Sydney. With offices located on opposite sides of the world, how does the Spredfast team stay united? Well, one thing that bonds employees together is the company’s unique core value: “Freesponsibility.”
According to Team Lead and Instructional Trainer Oscar Aparicio, freesponsibility is “all about getting your work done, and giving you the freedom and responsibility to get that done.” To put it more clearly, Aparicio explains that the two questions shaping Spredfast’s culture are, “Do you get your work done?” and “Is it good quality work?” If a team member wants to work from home one day out of the week, or even take a couple days off here and there, Aparicio says that’s totally okay because it’s “about the quality of work that you produce”—not about where and when you produce it.
Spredfast’s employees embrace this value while working remotely. And, with occasional opportunities to travel down to the headquarters in Austin, they’re also more than happy to take advantage of their flexible schedules and connect with the rest of the company. Strategic Solutions Architect Mitch Billeaud shares an appreciation for the unique company value, explaining, “Our managers give us the freedom to explore our individuality and do our jobs in the most creative and interesting ways possible.”
