When creating our software house, we never wanted to limit ourselves to trivial issues like geolocation, timezone, or native language. We work with clients from all over the world, our offices are located in 4 countries (to this date, but more is yet to come) and the members of our in-house team are from 7 countries. And that’s not all. Daily, we communicate and collaborate with some of the best specialists worldwide thanks to remote working. We’ll tell you a bit more about our company’s multicultural approach in today’s post.
Multicultural means more than simply having people from several ethnic groups on board. With a global reach in mind from the very beginning, we’ve prepared our branding and online English communication. We hope it attracts international clients and, most importantly, potential employees from around the globe. We started from a small but still multicultural team and never want to change it. In the office, the communication is held in English because we want to encourage people to perfect their language skills and don’t want anybody to feel left out of the conversation.
A tip for any business owner who wants to build a multinational team is to create a positive image of the company, showing the outside world that it’s a place full of open-minded, creative people where diversity is encouraged.
Because we all come from different backgrounds, we have different experiences. We acquired unique skills that are useful in unexpected situations daily. In a software house, anything can happen - our teams are involved in a bunch of projects and face problems from misunderstandings to technical issues and more. A diverse group means thousands of ideas per minute, resulting in immediate troubleshooting.
In a software house, global perspective and multiple language skills come in handy pretty much every day. For example, our sales and marketing team looks for new leads and channels for promotion. Due to the multicultural background, we can all advise them on communicating with different groups and nationalities the best way. Also, we use the experiences we had back in our home countries to improve relations with Ulan Software’s clients.
More and more company owners know that a diverse team is a must for reaching the global market, and a multicultural environment in the IT industry doesn’t shock anybody nowadays. Broader perspective and everyone’s unique history bring us closer to our final goal: delivering the perfect products and services to our clients from all over the world.
