A fertile environment for talent to grow
When asked, team members nearly always say the best thing about working at Fast Track is the people. Not only do they form strong relationships, but they appreciate each other’s talents and the opportunity to learn from one another. As Rebecka (Training Specialist) says;
“It’s really inspiring to work with talented people.”
A close second is the opportunity to learn and grow within the organisation. Nicky (Data and Insights Manager) commented that, “at Fast Track you keep growing...working here broadens your mind and you start to think differently.” This also seems to be one of the reasons that people choose to work for Fast Track with Miguel (Product Designer), one of our newest team members, saying he was attracted to the “very fertile environment in terms of learning and developing.”
One of the other reasons people choose to work at Fast Track is their experience through the recruitment process. Through my own process of joining the company, I got the sense that the people I came into contact with were very genuine and very real. Overall it seemed like people really care about the company, the people and the products they co-create.
My first impression seems to be an accurate reflection of how other team members feel, as they frequently mention how emotionally invested they are in their work, their team and the success of the business. There is a culture of care and a sense that everybody feels they are part of something bigger than themselves. Now that I have been in the team for a few months, I have a feeling people take their work seriously but they don’t take themselves too seriously. There isn’t anyone with a big ego and the culture is team-oriented.
