Not every company can be like Valve, but why not borrow some of their ideas. This hand book feels honest, entertaining and sets awesome expectations. Here’s an excerpt:
Valve will be a different company a few years from now because you are going to change it for the better. We canâ€™t wait to see where you take us. The products, features, and experiences that you decide to create for customers are the things that will define us.
Whether itâ€™s a new game, a feature in Steam, a way to save customers money, a painting that teaches us whatâ€™s beautiful, something that protects us from legal threats, a new typeface, an idea for how to be healthier while we work, a new hat-making tool for TF2, a spectacular animation, a new kind of test that lets us be smarter, a game controller that can tell whether youâ€™re scared or a toy that makes four-year-olds laugh, or (more likely) something nobodyâ€™s thought of yetâ€”we canâ€™t wait to see what kind of future you choose to build at Valve.
Anyone want to work on a new employee handbook? 🙂
