I’m Candace Whitaker. As the person in charge of Human Resources, I witness what’s innovative about our corporate culture every day. For starters, there’s no hierarchy here. Someone once presented our founder, Jay Cohen, with an organizational chart. He literally turned it upside down. Here, management serves those who work on the front lines. Not the other way around.
It really comes down to people feeling a sense of ownership. When you understand that everything you do impacts the company as a whole, you can’t help but react with greater responsibility. As a result, we value people’s thinking and welcome people’s input. It’s a very developmental environment.
More than anything, though, working at Signature is like being part of a great big family. We just naturally want to help each other out instead of competing against each other. It makes the workday a lot more enjoyable.
My advice? Whether you’re a consultant, an account manager or a recruiter, if you get a chance to work here, jump on it. You’re not likely to find this combination of integrity and opportunity for growth anywhere else.
