Business Done Differently with Jesse Cole

319: People First: Unconventional Workplace Culture With Jason Fried

May 20, 2020

Would you ever think it possible not to have salespeople, advertising, goals, nor a focus on growth yet still have more than two decades of profitability? Jason Fried, the Founder, and CEO of Basecamp, made this happen by creating a company culture that's focused on putting the people first. In this episode, he talks about how his company differs from other traditional companies. He shares how meetings are conducted within their company and how decisions are made. He also discusses their hiring process, his stand on job descriptions, how they welcome members of their team, and what perks they have in the company. When he's not out with his employees on a trip, Jason writes books such as Rework and It Doesn't Have to Be Crazy at Work.
