At GasPedal, we’ve got a pretty great corporate culture. Part of that is the time and enthusiasm we have for building that cullture, combined with a deep love by everyone for personal self-improvement.
We love to read and have an unlimited budget for business books (which everyone is encouraged to buy and keep). We also have ebook reader subsidies.
Frankly, we hope that the people we’re hiring are the kind of people who will enjoy this sort of personal growth. I do not know any successful executives who are not aggressive readers of business books and magazines. I have never been to a meeting where the latest business books weren’t part of the discussion — and there are always a few awkward junior people who were clearly out of the loop. Being well-read, and wanting to be well-read, is one of the key tickets to an executive career.
