In today’s modern work environment, company culture is vital. According to a Glassdoor survey, 56% of employees find a good workplace culture to be more important than salary.
The Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has disrupted life as we know it, causing many organizations to transition to a 100% work-from-home environment. Paymerang quickly made this transition and our skilled and motivated workforce adapted exceptionally well.
We’ve kept innovation and spirits high while continuing to
deliver value and security for our customers and their vendors. Paymerang’s
success has always been driven by its strong culture, which has been on display
during this unprecedented time.
For two years running, Paymerang has been one of the Richmond
Times Dispatch’s “Top Workplaces”. Consequently, we’d like to share the steps
we’ve taken during quarantine in the hopes that it sparks some ideas for other
Daily Stand-up Meetings:
Every team gets together for a daily online stand-up meeting.
Joining via video as well as audio helps our teams remain connected and
accountable. Everyone is given an opportunity to update their team on their
work, as well as ask any questions or raise any concerns they may have. Bonus
points if you have a fun background!
At Paymerang, we celebrate with our team on both
professional achievements and personal milestones. With the virtual workplace,
we have shifted our in-person celebrations to funny e-cards and virtual
meetings to help welcome new babies, celebrate marriages, and support one
another. We even “skunked” a coworkers yard who is expecting!
This is an unprecedented time and we want to support our
staff in every way possible. We have compiled lists of resources for our
employees to help with home-based work; including, fun activities to keep the
kids busy, free classes being offered online, ideas for virtual date nights,
and even links to free virtual exercise videos!
Every day, we post a fun game, trivia question, or fun fact
to keep our staff engaged. All work and no play makes for a very boring day!
Swapping ideas keeps our minds sharp for the task at hand.
The lunchroom is the heart of our office, and often where
employees working in different departments get a chance to interact. To keep
this company-wide engagement at the forefront, we have moved our lunchroom online
to create a virtual lunch hour! Employees can pop in and out as their time
allows to visit with others and take a break!
Virtual Walks for Wellness:
Each day at Paymerang, our staff gets together to take a
brisk walk through the office park. When working from home, we have kept this
tradition alive and shared our walks with teammates. We even have a few extra
participants from time to time!
Celebrating the Wins:
Paymerang even created a virtual version of our notorious
office gong. Anytime we’ve signed a new client or hit a huge project milestone,
we still ring the gong!
Maintaining connections and relationships while working remotely is crucial to preserving your company’s culture. With intention and some creativity, you’ll be surprised at the endless ways you can help your team stay connected while working remote.
