Today’s tech leaders continue to face extraordinary pressure as the need to digitize operations and create differentiated experiences for both customers and employees continues to increase.

Cultivating Workplace Culture In The Era Of Hybrid Work
JetRockets became a Teal Organization in 2020, giving employees more autonomy to work from their unique abilities.

A Leap to Self-Management: How We Implemented a Teal Organization Within JetRockets
According to Frederic Laloux, the author of Reinventing Organizations, a Teal organization is one where the management is based on worker autonomy and peer relationships.
This means that workers follow a self-management model, and team members are responsible for all the decisions and actions made by the team. There is little to no supervision from upper management, and teams have complete autonomy over how to approach their work responsibilities.
JetRockets went Teal in 2020. We are pleased to say that, although the transition was difficult, the results were worth it. Our company is stronger and more effective than it was before.

Taking breaks from work is important in any field. But it is especially important in tech, where everything feels high-paced and urgent.

- Boosted Creativity
- Increased Focus
- Prevented Physical Damage
- Reduced Stress
- Fewer Errors

Of course, they’ve had to deal with these issues while also scaling their organizations’ digital transformation – a task that, in itself, has ratcheted up the pressure on them as the race for strategic digitization intensifies.
