“Culture eats strategy for breakfast” – Peter Drucker
At Executech, we truly believe in this quote. We’ve seen firsthand how a positive and empowering company culture can produce amazing results.
However, this quote doesn’t mean that strategy isn’t important. We’ve found that having a great team in place that feels empowered to accomplish things can have a greater impact on company growth than fancy strategies.
Culture & Growth
Executech has seen incredible growth over the past few years. When Executech was formed in 1999 it only had one employee. Five years ago we only had 12 employees, now we have over 100.
Maintaining our culture over that time and growth hasn’t been easy. We’ve had to adapt to the needs of our growing team. An important piece of what makes our culture unique is regular team meetings. Our individual teams have daily phone calls with each other to coordinate and train together. We also hold weekly training meetings that bring the entire tech force of the company together to learn and collaborate.
Keep It Real
The leadership team at Executech has also made an effort to be open, friendly and approachable. We embrace mistakes and failures because we recognize that we are all learning together.
We also have regular company activities such as BBQs, parties and outings. All of these things are just a small pieces of what makes up a company culture.
Our efforts to maintain a culture and support our employees has paid off. Over the years we’ve earned several culture recognition awards including; Utah Business Magazine’s “Best Companies to Work For”, Salt Lake Tribune’s “Best Places to Work”, and Inc. Magazine’s “Best Workplaces”.
Every Executech employee is proud of the company they work for. We all look for ways to improve ourselves and the business.
