One of the most gratifying aspects of working in a fast-growing global company, like Mindspace, is the “people” culture. Working with colleagues all over the world, we enjoy an abundance of creative ideas, perspectives and discussions. Whether it’s an operations lead in London, a city lead in San Francisco, a salesperson in Amsterdam or a community manager in Poland, it’s the essence of teamwork that is the driving force behind Mindspace’s success.
So you can imagine the atmosphere when more than 170 Mindspace employees gathered together in Berlin for a Mindspace offsite last week. Flying in from more than 20 cities worldwide, our employees had the opportunity to meet their coworkers face-to-face for some bonding, brainstorming and celebrating.
Mindspace CEO & Co-Founder Dan Zakai kicked off the event with a keynote presentation where he outlined the vision for the future of Mindspace, emphasizing new initiatives that are driving growth and the importance of efficient and high quality teamwork.
Spread over 3 days, employees enjoyed a variety of team-building initiatives, cultural activities and professional development sessions.
“Flex offices inspire collaboration, which is important for our own people and teams – the offsite provided a great springboard for this. There really is no substitute for the power and connection of meeting face-to-face and becoming friends with the people you work with every day. Having fun and learning alongside your colleagues increases work satisfaction, loyalty, productivity and also makes us work better together as a company.”
Dana Riklis, VP Human Resources at Mindspace.
For newcomers such as Mara Lorin, who recently joined as a Marketing Specialist in Tel Aviv, the offsite provided a deep dive into the personality of Mindspace, from our values to our goals, and highlighted what she loves the most about working at Mindspace – “Our energy, diversity and collaboration. Such an incredible mix of creative people from different countries sharing ideas.”
