I’m Nogol Madani, the founder of Glee Factor. I was a young engineering professional, and after years of experience in various companies, I became curious about the concept of work culture, human relationships within teams, and how it can affect the work we produce. I started to thoroughly observe company cultures and realized that organizations were continually searching for new ways to develop and engage talent, boost team dynamics and bring more creativity to the workplace. But those methods didn’t always resonate with the 21st-century realities.
I began to wonder if there was a better way, and I started looking for a solution. I became particularly interested in developing work cultures that could attract and retain a new generation of the workforce, people who believe in growing personally and professionally, building meaningful relationships and being part of an impactful community through their jobs.
The solution was Glee Factor. I founded Glee Factor with the aim to help organizations transform their work cultures through adopting and activating new behaviors using the tools of play and creativity.
I believe it’s time for us to be more creative in how we build our working environments and how we work as teams and organizations. And that’s precisely where my team and I can help.
Bringing togetherness to teams. Helping teams transform their work culture by adopting and activating new behaviors through play.
We believe that organizations and companies can have an impact on the world, beyond their products and services, by supporting causes that matter. Of all the different causes to support what could be more accessible and meaningful to companies than investing in how their people produce the work and interact as teams while growing their business? With this approach, not only can we create successful businesses, but we can develop engaged employees, connected teams and gleeful citizens.
The values that we hold at Glee Factor help us to practice this vision daily. As connectors, moment creators and educators, we strive to be:
We approach projects, people, problems with compassion and empathy so we can find the solution that works for everyone. And we view everything through a lens of curiosity.
We believe in being inclusive and on bringing our whole selves to work. The more authentic we are, the more we’re able to ignite authenticity in others and build more inclusive cultures.
We agree that “the true object of human life is play,” and we make it a priority.
We practice vulnerability daily, and as a result, we use courage and creativity to find unconventional paths to transform teams.
