To help employees grow in their roles, Karsun pairs newer team members with more experienced ones—often managers or directors. Since the organization is nonhierarchical, the relationship between mentor and mentee is open and collaborative. Once employees find out which of the company’s major three business capabilities they fall into—software development, cloud solutions, or advanced analytics—mentors help plan a learning track, which often includes attending conferences or other professional development events.
About once a month, the Karsun Events Council—which anyone can join—plans something fun for all of its employees so they can step away from work and unwind. These include office-based events—like a Super Bowl party or a pie celebration for Pi Day—in addition to off-site outings, like happy hours, company picnics, and extravagant holiday parties.
"The collaboration background here is so strong. People are really willing to work with each other and respect each other regardless of what their experience is or how many years of seniority they have."
"What gets me excited to come to work at Karsun is the company's continuous drive to resolve challenges for customers—and that I'm always learning something new every day."
