Frederick, MD based custom software provider, Orases, is excited to announce and welcome Jakob Hunt as the Director of People and Culture where he will be focused on maintaining the company’s coveted work culture and making sure employees are given all the tools they need to be productive and satisfied with their work environment.
Jakob came aboard with over 20 years of experience in management, HR, and building safe, respectful, and sustainable cultures for both large companies such as Disney and H&M, as well as smaller organizations who were building the foundation of their values and culture.
“I am thrilled to be part of this award-winning culture at Orases,” says Hunt. “To Orases, culture isn’t just about ping pong games and Happy Hours, it’s about creating an environment of learning and collaboration. When employees feel safe, trusted, and empowered in their positions, they work hard not because they have to— but because they want to. This leads to better retention and satisfaction, with clients and team members, which equates to an ROI of higher profitability. Growing a strong and healthy culture means just that, planting the foundation of the organizational values and then being open to the direction it grows, while shaping it as it grows organically. Growing and maintaining a strong culture is a vital aspect to the health of a company.”
“We are all very excited to have Jakob on the team to help us maintain our award-winning culture as we continue to grow and accelerate our client’s visions and missions.” says Nick Damoulakis, President of Orases. “Keeping our employees happy isn’t an afterthought at Orases—it’s mission critical to how we operate. With Jakob joining the team, we are doubling down on our commitment to continue improving our industry leading employee satisfaction and retention rates.”
Orases is always looking for motivated and eager new team members to join and contribute to their award-winning culture. If you are interested in working for one of the most highly awarded software companies in the U.S., visit orases.com to apply.
