  1. Do you have own ideas how an organization can work with freedom outside of what’s mentioned in Moralis Handbook?

i wish i could have suggestions from previous organizations; I would have suggested to work 30-35 hours a day; that would make people be more time efficient daily. (but with freedom and responsibility who cares how many hours; what matter are results)

  1. Why is Freedom important?

Freedom is important because it is an important component in order to enable innovation, efficiency, and ownership.

  1. What is required in order to have freedom at the workplace?

In order to have freedom in the workplace, both trust and talent density is needed. An ongoing effort both from the team members and also from the company. If a company provides an environment of trust and empowerment, then employees have to maintain it and continue to earn it by their actions and results.

  1. How does Moralis work with freedom?

Since at Moralis the most important thing is Results, the company works with freedom by creating an environment of trust between the team members, where we know we’re all working on doing our best to drive Moralis forward and by being transparent and sharing all the information about our projects and the company with one another. We’re all a manager of one, which means that each of us is responsible for the work that we do and how we do it.

  1. Do you have your own ideas on how an organization can work with freedom outside of what’s mentioned in the Moralis Handbook?

Besides the flexibility in work hours, decision-making and transparency, I think companies could give team members:

  • Freedom to decide what projects to work on.

  • Freedom to choose what, how and from whom to learn.

  • Recognition when they are self-sufficient and efficient.

  1. Why is Responsibility important?

Responsibility is important because it is probably the most essential factor in preserving the freedom across teams and the workflow in a company.

  1. Is failure accepted at Moralis?

Failure is most definitely accepted at Moralis because it means that we’re trying to find new ways to do things (being innovative), and that’s also how we learn.

" I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work." -Thomas A. Edison

  1. Give some examples of what’s not accepted at Moralis.

At Moralis it is NOT accepted:

  • To do things that are not in the best interest of Moralis like sharing info with people who do not work at Moralis.

  • To break or take advantage of the trust we are given. For example, if we misuse the lack of oversight and simply don’t do anything or just the bare minimum with our time.

  • To stop pushing the wagon aka to wait for someone to assign a task to us when we’re done with our to-do list without taking the initiative to do something else next.

  • We only care about results

4. Do you have own ideas how an organization can work with freedom outside of what’s mentioned in Moralis Handbook?

  • Provide incentives such as bonuses for sucessful ideas and innovations. Being rewarded for innovating in a way that generates Moralis more revenue.

  • To have the freedom we need responsibility. Responsibility to not break trust, to get work done and to do, always what is in the best interest of Moralis.

  1. Freedom allows innovation.

  2. Trust, motivation and good management practices.

  3. By allowing it’s employees to be a “manager of one”.

  4. The Moralis handbook is a wonderful guideline for establishing the cornerstones of “working with freedom” , I believe it fully encompasses and displays what that means. With that being said, there is always room for improvement and in the future there may be other principles discovered that closely align with working freely.

  5. Without a sense of responsibility Moralis will most definitely crumble and fail, everyone must not only take responsibility for their actions but also be a responsible member of the organization so that it will continue to succeed and thrive.

  6. Failure is accepted and encouraged, without it we will never learn.

  7. Doing things that are not in the best interest of Moralis. Sharing sensitive data with competitors, taking the day off because you finished a task early or not producing your best quality or work.

Innovation Requires Freedom. Innovation requires as much freedom from processes, overhead, management, policies as possible.

  1. What is required in order to have freedom at a workplace?

Transparency: We empower each other to make own decision by being very transparent and sharing all information possible.

Minimal Contraints and Approval Processes:In most cases you shouldn’t need approval from your boss to implement new ideas or try new things.

Direct Responsible Individual: We assign Direct Responsible Individuals (DRIs) when we have a task at hand. The DRI is fully trusted to make decisions and organize the work in order to achieve the task on hand.

Manager of One: At Moralis we have this notion of “Manager of One”. This means you are responsible yourself for your work, for always contributing to Moralis.

  1. How does Moralis work with freedom?

You are fully trusted to structure your day however you want. As long as you attend all the booked and agreed upon meetings and as long as you are available in case your team needs you. Other than that you decide when exactly you start your work day and when exactly you end your work day.

  1. Do you have own ideas how an organization can work with freedom outside of what’s mentioned in Moralis Handbook?

Moralis is already giving all freedom I can think of right now. Maybe bonuses can be given to Sales (I don’t know maybe they already have it) to encourage them more.

  1. Why is Responsibility important?

Our responsibility is always to do whats in the best interest of Moralis.

  1. Is failure accepted at Moralis?

Failure is encouraged and is fully accepted. Sometimes it means trying risky ideas and project which will fail. Failure it totally ok - in fact it’s encouraged.

  1. Freedom is important because it drives innovation and also satisfaction during work. Having freedom means also more efficiency because the overhead is reduced, and the focus is switched to creativity.

  2. In order to have freedom at a workplace, a large number of talented people is required in the team, this way all the overhead and processed are removed.

  3. Moralis achieves freedom by trusting that each employee is a professional individual. Also transparency, minimal overhead, responsibility and letting the employee manage himself improve the feeling of freedom within the team.

  4. An organization should let people manage their own time. Besides this, let the employees choose on which projects they want to work on. Also give them the freedom to change processes, if needed.

  5. Responsibility is important because it grants total trust to the employee and this trust should not be broken, but rather respected and treasured.

  6. Failure is more than accepted, it’s actually encouraged, because this empowers the people to come with risky ideas, which might add a lot of value to the company. If you have scared employees, you reduce their capabilities of being creative.

  7. Some examples of what is not acceptable at Moralis are:

  • Slacking because there is no one watching over your shoulder to see that you are working or not
  • Leaking sensitive data from the company
