How would you describe the atmosphere within Hike One?
I would describe the atmosphere at Hike One as very open and friendly. Even in the first few weeks after I joined, everyone was immediately friendly. It’s like having a very warm blanket around you. You are not afraid to be judged for who you are and you just feel at home. And in terms of sociability, the company does a lot. Team outings with the entire Hike One team, but also sometimes with each office. That makes you feel really connected to your colleagues.
What else makes Hike One so special for you?
What makes Hike One special is that I enjoy going to work because work does not feel like work. This is partly due to my colleagues. What I also find very special about Hike is Holacracy. Hike gives me the tools to discover what I want to discover. Sometimes I don't even know if it's something I want to discover and then I simply get involved. That is cool. Before I know it, I'm in that circle and I'm doing things for it and I am energised by it. After that, it's actually passing the baton on to someone else who gets energy from it.
What do you think Hike One has added to your development?
I started here with little experience, a fresh face. Hike One has given me the opportunity to discover what I like, what I am good at and what I want to develop further. So I think what Hike One has done for me is to move more specifically towards what I ultimately want to do in my field. By working together, I embarked on the journey to find out what I excel in as a designer.
