How a Top-Workplace Maintains Culture During Crisis

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 organizations.

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!

Company Celebrations:

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!

Providing Resources:

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!

Virtual Check-Ins:

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.

Virtual Lunchroom:

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.

Paymerang Named Top Workplace

Paymerang is honored to be named a Top Workplace in Richmond for 2019.

We are humbled by this recognition and take great pride in our company culture, values and team members. Paymerang’s rapid growth and success within the past year is attributed to the dedication of each of our employees. As our organization continues to scale, we take the time to continually revisit each of our values to ensure we “walk the talk” and act on feedback to provide the best experience and support to our clients.

We believe this award is a reflection of the wonderful team we have at Paymerang and the strong values we seek to live each day – passion + positivity, customer focus, integrity, simplicity and teamwork.

If you visit Paymerang, you’ll notice an energy in the office that drives our team to work hard and focus on results, while encouraging our team to take time to support one another. Whether it’s getting lunch for the entire team while we’re working towards a tight deadline, going on daily wellness walks, or celebrating a birthday—there’s no shortage of support amongst our team.

Just as we strive for excellence in delivering our solution to our clients, we are also deeply invested in fostering an environment of inclusion and growth for our team. This year we’ve invested in training and development initiatives for our emerging leaders as well as the talent within our sales and operations departments. Our goal is to cultivate an environment of continuous learning, where team members can discover their strengths, master new skills, and utilize different tools to overcome new challenges to create high-performing teams. 

 Paymerang is passionate, and we look forward to continuing to build a strong and resilient organizational culture for years to come.
