At PatientPing, we encourage public praise through channels like Slack and Lattice. We also set aside time for shout-outs at our weekly all-hands meeting.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I started working at PatientPing as an Office Manager/EA. Being the 6th hire at a startup means that your role knows no bounds, and I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to explore all aspects of our business from customer support to accounting. I currently support a team of over 100 employees as a Sr. People Operations Lead.

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

"Giving them freedom to fail. Creativity inherently means trying something new, which implies risk. We want people to feel free to take risks without feeling the fear of failure! That, and very powerful cold-brew coffee :)"

Jay

CEO

What makes someone successful on your team?

The people that have been successful have these attributes. 1. Grit–they never give up. 2. Adaptability–startups change at a hyper-fast pace, people that embrace change really thrive. 3. Curiosity–they’re constantly learning and improving their skills. 4. Humility–they look at how they can improve themselves and regularly talk about their mistakes.
