Live at the Beach, Work in the Cloud: How the Coastal Cloud Culture is setting a trend

Posted by Amy Oplinger on Sep 7, 2017 7:00:00 AM

In today’s competitive landscape, companies and employees alike are very tuned in to the concept of company culture. Companies want to attract and retain top industry talent, and employees tend to enjoy work when their needs and values are consistent with those in the workplace. They tend to develop better relationships with coworkers, and are even more productive.

Coastal Cloud is very proud of our motto, “Live at the beach, Work in the Cloud.” We see ourselves as a disruptive force in the cloud technology consulting industry offering a unique lifestyle and work-life proposition for technology professionals. So, how is Coastal Cloud achieving this?

Team Mentality

The difference between being a team and just a bunch of individuals is that the individuals see themselves as separate from each other. Helping others is forced because you normally operate on your own projects, or your own part in a larger project.

Teams work together on all work related projects and help where necessary. It doesn’t matter who gets credit for what because you accomplish everything together. Coastal Cloud encourages team mentality not only in day to day work, but in the extra touches like a weekly video Happy Hour, Quarterly All Hands Calls and Annual meetings at the corporate location in Palm Coast, Florida.

Work Life Balance

It can be a struggle to strike a balance between work and family. Tim and Sara Hale, co-founders of Coastal Cloud, realize this and encourage work-life balance as an integral part of our culture. Balanced employees tend to feel more motivated and less stressed out at work, which thereby increases company productivity and reduces the number of conflicts among co-workers and management. Studies show that employees with a positive work-life balance are happier, and do a better job at work, both crucial for company retention rates.

Being a Coastal Cloud employee means you can work from anywhere, while also having time for friends and family.

A great culture is not easy to build — it’s why high performing cultures are such a powerful competitive advantage. Coastal Cloud can proudly say that we have built a great culture for employees while being able to meet the demands of the fast-paced, customer-centric firm.
