A Good Spend Culture Is Not Just About Saving vs. Spending

At the Procurify office in Vancouver, #SpendCulture is a tongue-in-cheek phrase that sometimes gets tossed about when we see someone being particularly thrifty. It’s ironic that we’d assign that meaning to the phrase when our own spend culture is very much focused on investing in rapid growth and creating an agile environment where we prioritize keeping our team comfortable, motivated and well resourced for continual development. Our office in Vancouver is located in a prime downtown location. We have a kitchen well stocked with snacks (including cider on tap) and dedicated space for video games (including a VR station), among other perks. To some business leaders this seems like the opposite of a good spend culture. We would humbly disagree.
