I recently had the pleasure to meet Charlie Kim of a Manhattan based technology firm called Next Jump. He is a remarkable example of a founder and CEO that is all about seeing his employees grow, not only in skill but in character.
Charlie has developed multitude of internal company culture programs that range from an in-house mentor program, to fitness programs, as well an internal university.
He has also developed a staff inclusive hiring process that guarantees a new hire never to be fired. Charlie Kim sees a new hire similar to a family adopting a new family member. If your kid underperforms you nurture and help them, don’t kick them out.
Charlie’s work is nothing short of impressive and just like him, I want my employees to feel cared for and I want them to be proud to work for me.
Charlie is a huge role model to me when it comes to how he thinks about company culture. Watch his keynote at the Colorado Health Symposium and you’ll see why.
Simon Sinek mentions Charlie in his most recent TED talk.
