Mention the words ‘Big Bang’, and most likely, one will think of the iconic TV show, perhaps a wildly popular Korean music group, or even the theory of how the universe itself began. However, for businesses looking to scale their capabilities, Big Bang is a global consulting firm that enables clients to navigate the cloud universe to do more and achieve more.
Founded in 2014, Big Bang is proud not to be a software reseller: They provide advice on a system architecture that runs and scales businesses worldwide. Its genius lies in helping companies choose, integrate, and even customize software solutions for their cloud needs and challenges, a one-stop shop that is agile and responsive. The company has grown into a global firm, adding offices in Toronto, Mauritius, Paris, London, Mexico City, and the United States, from its humble start in Montreal, in a garage no less, a pre-requisite for any successful disruptor in the tech sector. Being product agnostic and working with the right systems for their customers, the Big Bang team can create the best possible solutions. The company has a stellar track record and is frequently referenced by Forbes magazine.
Cloud has become the new business standard, offering many solutions, including improved security, accuracy, efficiency, and productivity. But what makes it so wonderful is the capability for remote work (from anywhere, including another Big Bang office), and this is where Big Bang excels for its employees, with an innovative program called Big Bang Nation.
While the pandemic taught us that remote work was doable, many companies are now gearing up to return to the office environment and other hybrid solutions. Not Big Bang, where ‘work from home is more of a way of life than a short-term solution. Big Bang Nation embraces the idea of offices without walls, where work-life balance thrives with ‘flex-time’ and ‘work from anywhere options for up to three months per year. And this refreshing approach emphasizes employees: it does not matter where they work, be it in a chalet, in the Alps, or a hut on a beach, as long as the work is done.
By stepping out and away from the ‘micro-management’ mentality of yesteryear, Big Bang empowers its employees, allowing them to work seamlessly at different hubs if they want to or need to. The company also fosters a true spirit of teamwork and has mentorship and coaching within its DNA. All new employees are given a mentor, aligned with their goals and life experiences, who guides them through the onboarding process. The end result is team members who support each other instead of competing against each other.
Career education and continued training are other critical elements to the success of Big Bang, with the company paying for all training courses, from interns to managers. Once the onboarding process is completed, employees can train in specific areas of expertise, leveraging the very best cloud systems. The company walks the talk when it comes to professional and personal development. A tailored onboarding path, customized career paths, training, certifications, and hands-on experience are a few examples of Big Bang’s commitment to their employees’ professional and personal growth.
In tapping into their DNA, Big Bang has created the ultimate work environment, and in doing so, they have constructed the most impressive business model designed to last: efficient, productive, secure, yet human, personalized, and uniquely inspiring. It’s not often you find a company that is actually practicing what they preach – leveraging technology to support a variety of employee expectations and needs.
Here’s to more companies and corporations embracing their own Big Bang Nation.
