What began as a way to keep remote employees in touch with Colorado headquarters has turned into a fun ritual that gets us all jazzed about logging onto our work computers on Monday mornings.
The “Windward Weekend Update” started off mainly for our employees who operate out of Vermont, Boise, Germany, Egypt and Lithuania, but now nearly the whole company participates.
Team members who have done something interesting (or not!) over the weekend share their adventures via the company listserv. We go whale watching in Canada, hiking in Colorado, beer tasting in Munich… it’s amazing what you might learn about some of your co-workers just by asking them about their weekends.
Not only do we get to know one another better, these updates encourage the work-life balance — a challenge employees everywhere can attest to. Check out the 2-minute video below of what the Windward team has been up to these past few months!
