Inc. spotlights TaskUs’ employee-first company culture

Company culture isn’t just a sign you put on the wall or a quote on your website. Company culture needs to be something that is lived every day in order to engage employees to bring their best selves to work, so they can be the best representatives of your brand. According to TaskUs’ co-founder Jaspar Weir, putting employees’ needs before anything else gets the best results.

“Our people are our biggest differentiator, so we have to attract and retain the best employees. To do that, we had to look at the employee experience, because that impacts the customer experience,” says Weir. “We focused on creating more engaging spaces that make it fun to come to work and putting more emphasis on health and wellness.”

In an interview with Crain’s Dallas, Johnson spoke about one mistake he’s made during his career and the lesson he learned from it.

“Sometimes you have to take your licks and move on. Now I oversee a team of salespeople at TaskUs so I pass these lessons on to them, too. I started here in November and opened the office in January in Uptown Dallas. We’ve got a team of 10 here reaching out to small and mid-size companies that are disrupting traditional businesses.”
