Category: Culture

Every day, we work together to create something bigger than ourselves. We work to change lives. We work to give hope. And we don’t just pay lip service to these ideals—our values are the DNA of our culture.

And what a culture it is! Our team members are provided the opportunity to attend Financial Peace University from the very first day. Our leadership takes pride in kicking everyone out of the office by 5:30 so we spend our evenings with family instead of hunkered down at our desks, and Dave provides a free catered lunch once a month. Team members enjoy a no-gossip policy, loads of free products, legendary Christmas parties … the list goes on and on. We work hard, but we also play hard.

But hey, don’t just take our word for it! Dave’s company has been recognized by the Nashville Business Journal as one of the BEST places to work in Nashville six times in a row! Our leadership truly believes that when you treat team members with excellence, you get excellent results.

Quality Assurance and Tech Support: A Match Made in Heaven

Quality Assurance and Tech Support: A Match Made in Heaven

Last time, I wrote about how user experience and quality assurance are BFFs. And that’s completely, 100%, without-a-doubt true. But there’s another team relationship that is mutually beneficial: tech support and quality assurance. Odds are, you’ve had a bad experience with technology. Maybe you’ve tried to order airline tickets online and run into issues. Maybe […] 

Work Hard, Play Hard

Work Hard, Play Hard

What is it like to work for a company that values family? Here at Lampo, it’s easy to get caught up in the great things we get to work on and how busy we all are. But here’s what’s different about this company and other companies: We work hard while we’re at work. And then […] 

This One Simple Thing Will Make You a Better Developer

This One Simple Thing Will Make You a Better Developer

In Entreleadership, Dave introduces a document called a Key Results Area (KRA). A simple definition of a KRA is an outcome-oriented job description. Lately, I’ve been reflecting on this particular line: “Pull ‘no’ and all of its synonyms from your list of first responses. Explore solutions. Prioritize. Contribute ideas.” It’s very tempting to start saying […] 

CRM: Is It B2B? B2C? Or H2H?

CRM: Is It B2B? B2C? Or H2H?

CRM implementation. The mere mention of the phrase strikes anxiety in the hearts and quickens the pulse of even the most veteran implementation teams. And it’s what we at Develop With Purpose find staring us down like a tiger in the jungle. As a company we have long since outgrown our current contact management system, […] 

A Life Lesson from 24′s Jack Bauer

A Life Lesson from 24′s Jack Bauer

Recently, my wife and I discovered the TV show “24.” Yes . . . I know we are more than 12 years behind and just now discovering a new meaning of awesome. But when you disconnect cable and rely on the Internet for your commercial-free, show-watching pleasure, well . . . there are just some […] 

iPhone Fairy

iPhone Fairy

More than a month ago, I was rushing home so my husband could leave to go to work. I parked, jumped out of the car with about 20 items in my hand, and dropped my iPhone face down on the concrete. I hesitated to pick it up afraid of what I might find. When I […] 

Keeping the J-O-B out of Work with Office Pranks

Keeping the J-O-B out of Work with Office Pranks

Who wants a boring monotonous “job” where the only excitement is watching your unit tests suite execute? Well, now that I mention it, I do enjoy watching unit tests light up my screen, but that’s beside the point. There should be more to work than just code and tests; there should be fun and some […] 

Ninja Turtle DISC

Ninja Turtle DISC

So around here we use a personality assessment called the DISC Profile System. You may have heard us talk about it before. As part of the assessment, they sometimes use animals to represent the categories: Lion for the D Otter for the I Golden Retriever for the S Beaver for the C A true computer […] 

Encouraging Your Teammates

Encouraging Your Teammates

A few weeks ago, I gave a presentation on a script I wrote to simplify my workflow with some automation.  I shared it with the hope that some of my teammates could utilize it, and if not,  then at the very least, inspire them to look for ways to automate and simplify. The following week, […] 

Merry Christmas!!
