Sara started in the games industry in the late 90’s and has worked with publishing, marketing, export sales and everything in-between. She is now a studio manager at Avalanche Studios new site in Malmö that she’s built up from zero the past year.
When starting a studio from scratch in Malmö you have a luxury to do your best to set the tone for your coming team, workspace and community. In my talk I will share my thoughts on the work we did and still are doing for building a team and studio, on how to work for a sustainable environment when it comes to people, planet and profit. How working thoroughly on the details of everything from napkins to the materials in the desk help set the environment you want and how that help your team to perform their best in the project.
How we work with an open communication and plan, so that the team feel trust and confident in sharing their ups and downs with you, and of course on how to make the most sustainable office you can!
I also will talk about the values in our office, how my leader style needed to change and still are changing to really keep up the values we have, and how that triples down in the interviews we have with candidates for our open roles. How we invite the team in the planning of the office, the activities we do and the knowledge we bring in to make them a part of the future of the place.
