Four years ago, RingCentral opened its Charlotte office to better serve East Coast customers and tap into the strong local talent pool. We started small with a team of just three people. In the first three years, we saw a 1,500% increase in headcount and now have over 100 employees in Charlotte.
As someone who has been there from the beginning, it’s been a thrill to experience. When opening a satellite office, the challenge is finding the right balance between the overall corporate culture and the one that emerges when teams work together closely over time. It’s been amazing to see our Charlotte office culture take shape.
The result is a highly collaborative environment in which everyone is willing to help each other and achieve and celebrate success together. We’re extremely proud of the strong culture we’ve built and to be a part of Charlotte’s thriving community. We were recently recognized by the Charlotte Observer as a Top Workplace. This is a direct reflection of the amazing people we have here who come in each day and bring their very best to work.
I’ve been asked our secrets to success in growing a satellite office. While we’re the first to admit we don’t have any magic formula, here are four ingredients that have worked for us in creating a remote office where people thrive.
I’m extremely proud of our Charlotte team and all that we have accomplished together in a short period of time. This Best Places to Work recognition is simply a first step. We have ambitions to not just be one of the best places to work but rather the best.
