Better Jobs With Companies That Care

Dec. 20, 2017

We have to hand it to Andy Williams- it really is "the most wonderful time of the year" regardless of which holiday you partake in. While most companies are preparing a festive office celebration or making sure their lunch catering is good to go- for our completely remote team at PowerToFly, getting everyone together to enjoy a meal and some cocktails just isn't an option (it really is always happy hour if you're in 12 different countries!). This year, we organized our own remote office party, known to us as "Secret Snowflake", which will go down as one of the most memorable company events of all time. Not only was it a fun event, but it enabled us to learn more about the team members we may not interact with on a daily basis, and donate to a charity that was significant to our "Secret Snowflake". We'd love to hear how your company is celebrating and how you're giving back to those who may not be as fortunate this holiday. Chime in on the discussion in our Facebook group, we can't wait to hear more about it!

9 Tips for Hosting a Successful, Collaborative Hackathon, from Quip

A company that is built around offering modern collaboration software needs to believe in the power of bringing people together.

Luckily, that's just what Quip is all about.

Their annual three-day hackathon Quiprupt is an example of what collaboration looks like not just as a product offering but also as a core tenet of company culture. We asked participants from Quiprupt 2021 to tell us about their experience coming together to ship cool stuff—and how Quip's culture sets them up to be able to find meaningful work while building better products.

Experience is the greatest teacher, and the experience of being a mom is particularly chock-full of learning opportunities.

We know from the examples set by our coworkers and friends just how good moms are at juggling competing responsibilities and priorities. ("If you want to make sure something gets done, give it to a busy person" would be even more accurate if it was changed to "give it to a working mom.")

So this Mother's Day, we decided to ask working moms at our partner companies about the secret sauce that connects parenting experience to being better and happier at work.
