Why We Choose Happiness
At Rocksauce Studios, you can’t ignore our mission statement. It’s on our wall and on the faces of our team members including the canines! But often times, we get lost in the pursuit of happiness, and forget WHY we are doing it.
Let’s go back to the fall of 2010 when our CEO, Q Manning, started Rocksauce Studios. He started with what he wanted. He wanted satisfied customers. He wanted a passionate team. Most of all he wanted an opportunity to build products for Appreneurs, Agencies and Brands that would make them happy. It was shortly after that desire that he started Rocksauce Studios with COO Peter Yoder.
Although that was the main reason our CEO started Rocksauce it still took several years for our mission statement to blossom into “We don’t make apps, we create happiness!” Finally in 2014, we cemented that mission statement at Rocksauce Studios right in our front entryway as a reminder to our team and a welcome to every visitor.
In the beginning of 2015, we worked on cementing our mission statement by establishing core-values to institute a road-map toward a consistent delivery of happiness. We did this by sitting down with every team member and evaluating what they considered to be core values of Rocksauce itself. We came up with these five:
- Happiness – Strive to deliver excellence by following best practices and being positive!
- Honesty – Respect others through truthfulness in your actions and words.
- Empathy -Understand one another to achieve common goals.
- Loyalty ‒ Respect for traditions and having a sense of belonging to something greater than yourself.
- Passion – Demonstrate devotion in all you do.
Not a day goes by that we don’t see someone naturally celebrating a core value as part of what they do at Rocksauce Studios. We even have a happiness team that goes out once a month to spread our mission of happiness on visits to some of our favorite agencies and brands all over town.
The biggest question has been, why do you choose happiness and what is our return?
Well it’s really simple — while a happiness gauge is difficult to measure since each individual is different — we are always working toward the same goal as a team.
Join us on July 26th for a special session at NewCo where Michael Manning, our Chief Relationship Officer will discuss some of our strategies to keep up with team engagement so we are able to live up to the standards of our client expectations.
Even though we strive to deliver happiness, at our heart, Rocksauce Studios is an app development company. We love this stuff! Want something amazing? Get a team that cares as much as you do and contact Rocksauce Studios today!
