Where at least 10 Olivians gather.

Olivians may work from anywhere.

COLUMBUS

We don’t say “remote” or “wfh”.

Olivians working are “on the grid”.

Olivians at the hub or a substation are “on-station”.

Olivians not working are “off the grid

Some Olivians will work in an AlphaSite.

COLUMBUS

Other Olivians can visit and work from an AlphaSite if there is space.

(AlphaSite is a major customer where Olivians work on-site with the customer)

Olivians can move freely from the hub to a substation.

COLUMBUS

Substations will be configured for flexibility.

Each location will have a Zoom room.

Distribute Olivians to:

1.Take advantage of geographic talent pools

2. Decrease global health risks to the business

3. Make it easier to scale

4. Make flexibility a perk

5. Keep us close to our customers

6. Avoid costly commercial real estate edifices

7. Create deep connections in many tech communities across America.

Olivians can make a substation

COLUMBUS

If 10 or more Olivians choose to co-locate to an area in CONUS that doesn’t currently have a substation, we will create one.

Olivians can

“getaway”

COLUMBUS

A getaway is a rental property with all amenities that any Olivian can reserve completely free of charge. We will continue to open getaways as our workforce grows.

Olive now has a distributed workforce that encourages employees to flexibly work where they feel they can be the most effective.
