How Do We Consistently Land Top-Tier Digital Talent?
We love it when clients and partners ask us this question.
We provide a workplace that promotes laughter, constant challenge, and the pursuit of greatness every day. Growth through impromptu mentoring and formal training is a constant. Everybody who comes to Arteric grows their skill sets, often down unanticipated paths.
The work is demanding, so we take a radical approach to avoid the burnout that plagues so many digital agencies. To help our employees pursue happiness, we give them liberty. Arteric has created a high-freedom environment, where the basic principle is simple — if your work is done, do what you need to do.
A Work In Progress
Times and needs change, and so does our thinking. Our benefits program will grow and evolve to inspire our family (staff) to develop the products that our clients will love for years to come.
Unlimited Paid Time Off
Only 2% of Silicon Valley offers an unlimited PTO policy*. We all work hard, and we want our employees to have the freedom to take time off and plan their schedules accordingly. Family is important, and this policy provides the flexibility for people to achieve a healthy balance between work & family†.
To encourage this healthy balance, we mandate that each employee must take 5 contiguous business days off. In addition to mandating time off, we challenge individuals to "disconnect": no email, no texts, and no work. In return for our employees taking time off (really OFF), we compensate this disconnect time with an additional bonus.
Flexibility in Schedule
We believe that happiness is derived from a sense of control.
Providing health insurance facilitates our employee's ability to receive the proper care. Maintaining a healthy mind, body, and spirit is essential for long-term success inside and outside of the office.
We believe in creating financial stability and having the ability to take action today.
Employer Retirement Contribution
We encourage action by giving a 3% employer contribution to your 401k, regardless of how much (if any) you contribute yourself.
Keeping our employees well versed in business- and life-related literature helps foster innovative ideas. We fill our library with books that our president and CEO have read and felt were key to their professional and personal development and success.
Commitment to Learning
Take and keep any book in the library. Management will pay a bonus to employees who absorb the material. We believe in stimulating learning, and we regularly send employees to conferences & continuing education courses.
To be at the forefront of innovation, we must stay up-to-date with the latest technology.
Caffeine is revered in tech & digital healthcare agency culture. It fuels brilliant ideas or at least provides the energy it takes to create one. Arteric has a sophisticated coffee machine that provides options rivaling those at local coffee vendors. Also, the refrigerator in the break room is always stocked with ample amounts of Red Bull®.
We believe it is important to stay healthy.
