What are the Anthill Cool Company Awards?
The Cool Company Awards were launched in 2006 as a way for Anthill to acknowledge and celebrate Australian organisations that are doing things differently to bring about positive change. Cool Companies stay one step ahead of the rest. They breed leaders who are rule-makers and rule-breakers. They are trend-setters in attitude and action. Quite simply, they are … cool! More.
Warrior Forum [FINALIST, ONLINE]
Company: Warrior Forum
Category: Online Business
Picture a world before people knew the internet’s value. Created in 1997, Warrior Forum was an organisation built to discuss the best way to make money online.
Before this community existed, there was nowhere to discuss these trends. Warrior Forum brings together internet marketing and web design professionals from Australia to Kathmandu. Currently, the forum has over 1.1 million members, who’ve made almost 10 million posts! That’s a lot of online expertise!
Even 20 years after its creation, this company still leads the way in digital marketing innovation. Additionally, Warrior Forum has some cool structural and employment quirks that help set it apart.
Let’s start by taking a peek at one of its biggest annual events.
Each quarter, Warrior Forum runs its own hackathon. Any employee can join and create anything they like for the company or their colleagues. No limits. No boundaries. This can be anything from a brand-new product to something to make the employee experience even better. The winners of the contest get cash prizes and a chance to be a part of an interactive ceremony broadcasted live across the company. Just like the forum of their name sake, this live broadcast brings people together from around the world to bond, congratulate, and get to know one another.
Besides encouraging some white-hat fun, the company doesn’t exactly conform to a typical silo structure.
The company happens to be a complete meritocracy. All staff have an equal voice and equal ability to make decisions. No information is hidden. Everyone can see how the company’s doing in real time. By promoting the ultimate level of staff engagement, Warrior Forum truly sets itself apart.
