Many scale-up CEO's hesitate at the idea of building a team that is not in the room next door. While some reservations are around ensuring quality of code, one of the largest concerns is often more about maintaining organisational culture.
Organisational culture shapes the way your business is run and helps your employees feel connected to the company's mission. However, maintaining the same culture for a remote or nearshore dedicated team that exists for your in-house one can be a delicate task — especially when regional differences come into play.
Since casual banter by the watercooler isn't an option, you have to use other ways to foster communication and culture between your onshore team and dedicated nearshore engineering centre.
In this article, we walk you through our approach on how we find talent, build the right culture and help you scale your own high-performing nearshore team.
1. We start by asking the right questions
We start our client journey by asking the right questions to not only understand your talent needs, but also the company's purpose. Companies with a strong purpose attract more customers, but also are more likely to attract and retain talented employees.
We then explore other aspects of your business as well as your technical challenges so we can understand more holistically what success in nearshore development looks like for you.
Our team of specialists will then co-create a solution with you and your stakeholders to ensure we build a dedicated team that is connected to you and your vision.
