Last month, I finished teaching my MBA Digital Strategy course to 11 of my colleagues.
Over 13 weeks, they worked through a model of digital strategy, found new connections, planned some full scale campaigns, and enjoyed hanging out with each other.
Most importantly, they focused on self-improvement in addition to meeting the needs of our clients and the demands of their personal lives — especially during the time of COVID.
I miss seeing my teammates — even though we’re not physically together, we have been connecting through:
- Remote learning events like the Digital Strategy class
- A channel devoted to “staying connected” where people post random snippets of their lives
- A virtual fundraiser for The Bail Project, Southern Poverty Law Center, and the National Urban League that raised over $14,500!
- Online trivia nights across teams as a pure hangout sessions
Proof that culture can transcend distance and multiple time zones.
At Perficient, we continually look for ways to champion and challenge our talented workforce with interesting projects for high-profile clients, encourage personal and professional growth through training and mentoring, and celebrate our people-oriented culture and the innovative ways they serve Perficient and the community.
