|Overview:||In this session, Lesley Mansford, the co-chief people officer of Supercell, will discuss how the company has approached its evolving culture over the past 12 years as a global games company with studios in Helsinki, Shanghai, and a North America studio in the works now. Supercell's mission is to create games that as many people as possible play for years and that are remembered forever, which makes listening to the community and addressing their needs essential. With growing community needs, the Finnish developer regularly assesses its culture to identify core values and required changes. Ensuring its teams and processes are set up to deliver great games and a healthy, sustainable work environment remains as important as ever. Lesley will highlight the importance of companies reevaluating culture as a habit as they grow, instead of as a response and how Supercell is approaching its second decade.|
