Brewing Our Talent
Greetings from Boston! I’ve just returned to my desk after checking in on the first day of our Orientation class, which kicked off early this morning. This group of new hires filling various positions across the country is in for quite a week that jumps into high gear tonight when they sit down with Jim for a tasting of a majority of the beers we’re currently brewing. It’s always a memorable event!
Our culture plays a huge role in everything we do and it emphasizes quality, growth, respect for others, open-mindedness, and hard work. Recent hires get a chance to observe this through the orientation course material, the people they meet, and the activities they participate in. At the end of their week in Boston, not only will they have a better appreciation of our product and the craft beer community as a whole, but they’ll also take away a better understanding of what we stand for.
We are committed to preserving and maintaining our culture through the people we hire. We believe that hiring and training the best people are the most important ingredients in doing so. We look for hard working, motivated, passionate, enthusiastic, creative, and competitive people who always look to raise the bar and never settle. Not to be lost in the shuffle is a candidates ability to have fun – after all, we are a beer company, and if you can’t have fun in this business, there’s something wrong. I think to a recent Harvard Business Review blog post I read about the importance of culture when choosing a job.
Our newest batch of hires are coming into the tail end of our annual employee homebrew competition, which always breeds some creative, fun discussions and inevitably leads to some good natured trash talk. Our newest employees will also be welcomed into our family-like atmosphere as we celebrate monthly birthdays with cake (and of course, a beer). Many times the friendships formed within our brewery and office walls spill well beyond working hours. As we come together each January for our national meeting, it’s incredible to see orientation groups from years past come together to share a pint and catch up.
If the work life here sounds good to you, and you feel you may fit the criteria we are looking for, please feel free to visit our careers page and take a look at our current open positions. We update this page frequently so I would recommend checking in often. We are constantly looking to add new talent to our organization, and our next ingredient could be you!
