Want to Work Here

At startup, most IT projects become so concerned with funding and development that all other issues get sidelined. Be aware that during those heady, early days, whatever procedures, style, and practices you adopt as you go have a habit of petrifying into permanent policy.

It's only human to concentrate on the most important issues. However, if you don't get the main components as you really want them at the start, it can be a long hard slog to change established working patterns. As with a garden, it pays to set up the right environment and guidelines at the start. Creating an atmosphere that others want to be part of will pay for itself again and again.

Eight key areas particularly deserve consideration:

1. People

2. Company ethos

3. Communication

4. Working environment

5. Staff relationships

6. Spreading the benefits

7. Corporate stability

8. Freeing the human spirit
