Slant Six is an independent producer of original video games based just a few blocks from the Granville Island waterfront. When it comes to keeping its cadre of artists and techs happy, this company’s main focus is internal professional development. Management encourages a collaborative culture by keeping a flat hierarchy, where anyone can approach anyone else for support, and by organizing monthly learning sessions, where experts in various departments can share their knowledge with colleagues they don’t normally work with. Before the day’s work starts, teams hold “scrums” where anyone can bring up ideas, roadblocks, inspiration or advice, which keeps staff informed about how their co-workers are doing and where people can help each other.
