Careers at Extension Engine: What We Mean by People Operations

We talk a lot about the value of our People Operations, or People Ops, practice at Extension Engine. Because it’s not the industry standard (most companies have an HR department instead), we know that it requires some explanation. 

We choose to have this practice because we see our employees not as resources but as individuals. So in order to better and more fully serve them as the people they are, we put the focus on “people” over “resources.” Yes, we’ll help you with your computer setup, but we’ll also help you maximize your talents and develop a learning plan to build your career into what you want it to be.

For more on our company culture, check out these blog posts on authenticity, transparency, humanity, and how to retain the best staff.
