As we all know, in the modern working world, remote working has become the norm. With advancements in technology and the increasing need for flexibility, more and more employees are able to work from the comfort of their own homes. However, whilst remote work has its advantages, it’s important not to overlook the value of getting together as a team. We were excited to have the opportunity to come together for a face-to-face meeting recently.
The two-day gathering featured a jam-packed agenda, covering a whole range of topics such as finances, creativity, company structure and employee wellbeing. We took time to chat about how things are going, ask difficult questions, and come up with some really creative answers. We discussed topics such as the difference between creativity and innovation, how to look after our mental health, and we worked on some real, tangible ideas to help us stay creative and at the forefront of interactive creative concepts.
We were lucky enough to be joined by some of the expert consultants who we work with on a regular basis with sessions and workshops run by them, and individual team members, focussing on our five key company values: Own It!, Enjoy It!, Talk About It!, Create It! and Give a Shit! It really was a team effort all round.
We’re all for modern ways of working and it really does have it’s advantages – but getting together is a real reminder that there is no better way to communicate than face to face. Time to work, time to laugh, time to be creative, time to chat … those ‘water cooler’ moments are just as important as completing that spreadsheet. (There wasn’t a water cooler, but you catch my drift!).
