How do you empower your team to be more creative?

One of the key values at Unacast is “Be your own CEO” – we want people to be in charge and take decisions, not wait for direction or approval. If you were the CEO, what would you do? We truly believe this is gives our employees more freedom, limited rules and fosters creativity.

What's something quirky about your company?

At Unacast we don't wear shoes in our office! It is just one of the Norwegian values that our founders brought over with them when they opened our New York office. It makes the office more comfortable and it promotes the feeling that when we are at work, we can feel like we are at home.
