Life is short. Work somewhere awesome.
A short while ago, Ann, our Office Ambassador here at Lawline, invited me to attend an event sponsored by The Office Heroes League, which is a professional networking group that holds events designed to educate professionals on making life easier in any given office. Since I am a vivid fan of every learning experience that adds value to your work, I didn’t hesitate to say yes to Ann's invitation. The primary focus was to talk about company culture, and brainstorm ideas on how to create and maintain a pleasant work environment; the do’s and don’ts of planning and organizing successful events; and discover the latest tools to do our jobs more efficiently and have fun at the same time.
In a vibrant and energetic scene, a group of experts and fellow office heroes greeted us with hors d’oeuvres and amazing ideas from every industry you can possibly imagine. From highly recognized Marketers and Event Planners to the Chief Happiness Officer of the Happiness Agency. The panelists from diverse backgrounds came together to discuss their passion for making people happy in their workplaces, something not often valued in many companies. From cheese tasting to renting AirBnB’s, the ideas were infinite and exquisite!
In the midst of this helpful networking event, it was not only the presenters, but the like-minded professionals who create and empower these “human-sustainable” companies, from whom I learned the most. These office heroes don’t wear capes, but they do save many people from a sedentary 9 to 5 work environment.
On my end, I feel lucky to have a front row seat on how Lawline makes most of these ideas a reality; transforming a good place to work, into a great one! Our company culture lives by these five core values: Care, Create, Act, Grow, and Play. They embrace who we are, where we are going and what we want to accomplish. Quoting Mr. David Schnurman, Lawline CEO, ”It’s all about having the right people in the right seats and having the right communication and execution.” No wonder why they named us one of the Best Companies to work for in New York State!
