Get Better – this core value reminds us to strive for more training to always be experts in tools our clients need, better our understanding of industry specific trends, and personal development physically and mentally. This core value does not strictly apply to just the work place, but also to our personal lives. Providing opportunities for wellness in and outside of the office is a huge part of our company culture. The treadmill work stations provides the opportunity to get those steps in while answering emails, or our full bookshelf has many good reads that any employee can borrow.
As a team we read or listen to a book monthly. Many topics of these books are mainly personal and professional improvement, but we sneak a guilty pleasure in there every so often. At the end we discuss take-aways, overall impressions, and always how the voice of the reader impacted the book. You cannot deny that the melodic voice of Matthew McConaughey reading Greenlights in the car or at the gym doesn’t improve your mood by 50%.
During the month of July, we asked everyone to do a readers’ choice where we encouraged each person to read that book that they “never had time” for or try a new author or genre.
