Everybody moves around every year and has a different seat in the company. And people don’t have a choice where they sit; we rotate them.

Part of the reason was to embrace change, to remove turfiness so that you’re not just chatting with your friends and sitting with your friends.

You sit with somebody else from a different team so you get to know their job. What are they doing? What are they saying on the phone? How do they tick? And it’s getting to know different people, so that we build a really big team.
