The SMG team is fiercely proud of our positive, flexible, diverse, open-minded and agile culture. From recruitment to promotions culture, mission and core values are placed front and center for all decision making.
First and foremost we are a community-oriented company — we are here to serve our members. And specifically, we are deeply focused on delivering the knowledge and creating the networking opportunities that advance their careers. This is our north star.
Our organization is digitally native, distributed, diverse and virtual, and has been from its inception. We continue to embrace this approach to work and continue to hire the best fit talent regardless of where they are based.
Beyond location, we are an outcomes-focused organization. We set team goals and work to provide our people with the resources they need to achieve them. How they get there and during what hours of the day is not a management priority.
In 2021 we created a new policy of Half Day Fridays. Our agreement across the organization is that as long as all teams achieve their quarterly goals, we’ll continue this policy indefinitely (it’s quite popular).
Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) is a high priority across our organization, at every level.
