The Nubik Formula

On November 8, 2017, Nubik’s President, Kate Bussières, was recognized by the Réseau des femmes d’affaires du Québec (Quebec Businesswomen’s Network), who awarded her the prize for female entrepreneur of the year 2017 in their “medium-sized business” category.

A year earlier, on September 9, 2016, to be precise, Nubik received the Prix reconnaissance conciliation travail-famille (Work-Life Balance Award) from the Ministère de la Famille du Québec (the Quebec Ministry of Families) and the Regroupement des jeunes chambres de commerce du Québec (RJCCQ) (Quebec Youth in Chambers of Commerce) for its work in supporting the work-life balance of its employees.

As these lines are written, Nubik proudly posts growth figures of at least 45% over the past three years, and rates of staff retention that knock the socks off our competitors.

All this success has been achieved, and continues to forge ahead, in an environment where all of our employees work from home!

We are all working towards the same goal, which is the success of our business. Nubik employees are closely connected, to the surprise of others outside our organization, given the physical distance between us.

So how do we explain this success, both on economic and social levels?

“Each and every employee works from home, and most of them have families,” says Katie Bussières, Nubik’s President.

Managing employees from afar is no easy task. To do so effectively requires an approach that is creative and out-of-the-box. The secret of the success of our NUBIK FORMULA is due in large part to a collaborative leadership style embodied by President Katie Bussières, and by a workplace culture and policies that are based on core values that are shared by our employees.

At Nubik, we have no formal hierarchy or command structure, no negative hallway gossip, no team silos, and no barriers to success. The 9-5 grind is a thing of the past… and many of our colleagues support one or more social causes.

What’s more, working from home provides flexibility to schedule and meet family obligations (like picking the kids up from school), and whether you are an early riser or a night owl, you can work whenever is best for you. You can give the best to both your family and your career – and still put in a good day’s work!

Nubik is an experimental business that has developed a new formula for what it means to work from home. And everyone seems to find their own way to make it work!

The NUBIK FORMULA really works!
