Here at Calyx Containers, we know our people are the secret to our success. Just like in any rapidly growing company, we try to keep and strengthen what makes our team environment special, while adapting to the new challenges and opportunities that come along with hyper-scaling and growing our company to service the demands of our customers and the rapidly growing cannabis industry.
To keep our signature Calyx culture as inclusive and welcoming as the day we started, we live and breathe our core values. These values are at the heart of all that we do, and have been since Day 1. As we continue to evolve and expand, our commitment to the core values that have shaped our approach to doing business and fostering careers is only strengthening.
“I really like the ‘casual but serious’ culture at Calyx! We are serious about our business, but also we are friends!” said Drishtee Gupta, Financial Analyst.
These values allow us to all speak a common language, bringing vastly different areas of expertise, experience, and skills together in a way that creates a truly special team and working environment.
According to Analytics Manager Andy Seeger , “Calyx is full of smart people who want to do smart things. We find and hire people who are experts in their specific fields, and work together to drive innovation.”
Take a spin through our core values and let us know if you think you might be ready to explore a career at Calyx!
At Calyx, every one of our team members is expected to take ownership regardless of title. We don’t wait for others when we see an opportunity to act. We help our teammates when they need it because we know their problems are our problems. Every initiative we take is seen through to the end. You will see teammates crossing their forearms in the “X” shape as a sign of acknowledgement or appreciation.
Be Quick, But Don’t Hurry
Calyx is in a highly competitive industry and to maintain our current leadership position in the packaging business, we must always operate with a target on our back. The rate at which we can make decisions correctly is directly proportional with our success. We take calculated risks with time spent “sharpening the axe” before we begin cutting.
Sustainability Is Multi-Dimensional
Achieving success is a marathon, not a sprint. When we implement processes that will inevitably change, we attempt to make them relevant as long as possible. It is an all-encompassing choice to protect our planet and people, for the present and the future, balancing our needs with positive long-term impact.
We Are Square: Quality Does Not Cut Corners
While we are square at heart, we always strive for peak efficiency. This often means cutting corners to resemble our squound designs. We acknowledge many have experienced our “unique" problems before and support leveraging the work of others when appropriate for a short cut. One area where we will never compromise our standards is on the caliber of our products and service.
Customer Is The Only Boss
The customer’s success is our success. We exist to solve their problems, their customer’s problems, and provide trusted solutions to make everyone in the value chain’s life easier. We underpromise and overdeliver, never the other way around. Their commitment to Calyx is what fuels our ability to push our mission forward.
Earn Success Every Day
Every single day is day one. We strive to get better every day, even if it's only an improvement of 1%. That's 365% of improvement every year. Small wins build massive success. We celebrate our achievements, and then it’s right back to work. It doesn’t matter what we’ve accomplished if we have more to go to make our BHAG a reality.
The Biggest Failure Is The Failure To Ask For Help
Everyone is encouraged to use innovation and creative ideas to solve problems and serve our customers. Sometimes we don’t get everything right the first time. As a result, failure is accepted here - as long as we can learn from it and share those learnings with the team. We all know it takes the whole village. Your position in the org chart does not matter. If you realize you are outside of your circle of competence, lean on your teammates.
Better Together: Cultivate An Inclusive Environment
The Calyx culture is designed to nurture the personal and professional growth of our team members in a challenging and rewarding atmosphere. Our best ideas come from every colleague in a team built on trust. If everyone feels empowered to share their opinion, we cultivate the optimal environment to collaborate. There are no stupid questions or comments. We commit to ensuring each and every person can show up with complete confidence to be themselves and to foster the change we empower them to create.
