No matter what team you’re on at Perficient, taking time to come together outside of traditional work duties is an important part of our culture. It helps us grow and maintain friendships, identify special talents, and acts as a reminder that while we’re all dedicated to working together to grow Perficient, that Perficient is just as dedicated to growing us as people.
Building Culture One Paint Stroke at a Time
One Friday afternoon, the People team (our Human Resources department) took a break and brought out the easels, paints, and secret talents for a super special team happy hour. The event, organized by Perficient’s new VP of People, Andrea Lampert, was a smashing success.
A Surprise at the Doorstep
People team colleagues each received a surprise package in the mail that included a canvas and painting supplies. They were led through virtual instruction to create a picturesque landscape that Bob Ross would certainly be proud of!
The virtual event was the perfect way for the People team to come together, have a little fun, and welcome our new Director of Talent Acquisition, Mike Grennier. Mike even brought his painting into the office, and several colleagues commented they would bring theirs in as well, once we all go back in.
Trying New Things Together Brings the Team Together
The virtual painting event was the perfect way to catch up with People team colleagues and boost morale. The team laughed together about their struggles to create the perfect shading on their mountains or create the right color for their trees. We bonded in support of our more artistic coworkers, like Tanya Stewart, Talent Acquisition Specialist, who has a knack for all things creative.
Once we finished our paintings, it came time for the big reveal! Be sure to take a look at a few of the highlights from our gallery below.

We encourage colleagues to bring their whole selves to work, believe in a flexible and autonomous work environment, and know that work-life balance is an important part of workplace happiness. We have a firm commitment to delivering excellence in all we do, but a little break for some laughs every now and then reminds us that we really do have the best jobs ever.
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.
