STAY HUNGRY, STAY FOOLISH
THE 99 WAY
We have a strong culture of ownership, achievement and opportunity. We take our work seriously but not ourselves - we have fun! There are regular RIDE Events (reward and recognition, information, drinks and eats) to celebrate our achievements as a team, plus our annual GLOBAL event at an international destination celebrating the top achievers within the company. People is our number one philosophy and we reward and recognize our high achievers.
We thrive on having and giving ownership in our roles. We are empowered to be autonomous with the freedom to make decisions and to treat the business like our own. To support this mindset we offer our people financial ownership through Shares, Commission, Profit Share and Business Ownership Schemes for our Team Leaders. By 2027 our vision is to be 54% employee owned.
“First Who, Then What” Is a principle that guides us in how we think about opportunities. People is our number 1 philosophy and we have self motivated, smart, achievers in our teams who help decide the business direction. We nurture, trust and invest in our people and we include everyone. We focus on promoting from within and have numerous training pathways to nurture development.
We have high expectations of achievement in performance, attitude and teamwork. This drives us to delight our customers towards our vision of being the World’s Most Approachable Bike Shops. We are passionate about meeting rhythms with transparent sharing of information and coaching of our people. Each person at 99 Bikes will have a 1 on 1 with their Leader every month to nurture their development.
TAKE IT FROM A 99’ER
Here’s why our people love being a part of the 99 Bikes team
“I joined the 99 team late 2019 in the Fast Track Team Leader Program. I was immediately impressed with the rewarding, inclusive culture and the opportunities for growth within the company. Within 6 months I was in a Team Leader position and tasked with opening one of our newest and largest stores. Fast forward a couple of years and I am now in a State Leader position. I am really excited to be working in such a supportive, progressive and fun environment and for the next leg of my journey with 99 Bikes”
MICHELLE - STATE LEADER
“I joined 99 Bikes in 2017 as a sales consultant which was, in fact, my first job! At my initial group assessment day, I was identified as having future leadership potential. It was so motivating to feel acknowledged, without having the experience, but rather being appreciated for my personality traits and potential. I became a Team Leader in 2019 and it has been wonderful to be a part of a company who creates a huge variety of pathways and opportunities, no matter your aspirations. 99 Bikes feels like a big family, promoting egalitarianism, ownership, environmental consciousness and leading a healthy lifestyle!”
BRIT - TEAM LEADER
“I joined 99 way back in 2014, and have never worked in a better company! There is so much support, training, opportunity and recognition! As I’m about to pack my bags for my 7th Global gathering, I never imagined being a bike mechanic could be so rewarding. I’m proud to work for a company that looks after its staff as much as their customers, helps people achieve their dreams of riding bikes or growing their careers in a fun and safe environment.”
