A company’s culture is one of the most important factors when choosing a place to work. In fact, a survey by Indeed found that nearly half of job seekers who considered a job but chose not to apply said their decision ultimately came down to culture.
A great company culture encompasses a lot of factors — things like trust and transparency, respect and inclusivity, supportive leadership, career opportunity, and more. But at the end of the day, creating a positive culture comes down to people.
At Sovrn, we’re fortunate to employ an amazing group of talented people who share our core values. Together, we’ve developed a culture that’s truly unique and special — and it’s often the number one reason our employees give when asked why they love working at Sovrn.
Here are just a few examples that demonstrate the real-life impact of the Sovrn culture:
Pride Month celebrations 🌈
June is Pride Month, and we made the most of this opportunity to celebrate the LGBTQIA+ community and support all employees’ right to be their full authentic selves. Throughout the month, our DEI Council planned a number of activities including shared office goodies, volunteer opportunities, and virtual game of Pride Bingo. Since we are a hybrid work environment, the virtual option gave everyone the opportunity to participate.
Bike to Work Day 🚴
Colorado also celebrates Bike Month every June. Since Sovrn is headquartered in Boulder, we encouraged employees to ditch their vehicles and join us for Bike to Work Day on June 22. We had an impressive showing of cyclists who took the opportunity to get an extra workout, save some gas money, and help protect the environment. Every employee who embraced the bike-to-work challenge received a free breakfast and a raffle entry for a chance to win a $100 gift card to their favorite bike shop.
A return to in-person gatherings
For the first time in more than two years, we were able to bring some of our teams together in person at Sovrn headquarters in Boulder, CO. Members of our Data, Engineering, Product, and Technology teams came from around the globe for a week full of learning, collaboration, and team building. It was a great opportunity for people to meet in person — often for the first time — and work on projects face-to-face. Of course we also incorporated fun activities like an office scavenger hunt, “Guess Who?” quiz featuring fun facts about our team members, food trucks, and a group hike.
Unique employee perks ✨
We’ve put together a unique set of perks to keep all of our employees healthy and happy. In addition to first-class health benefits and wellness options, we offer lots of little “life-improvement perks,” like a free subscription to the Calm app, generous commuter benefits, an in-house barista, and an employee recognition program. We even organize frequent volunteer opportunities, so our employees can enjoy time together while giving back to the community.
Swag, swag, swag! 🧢👕
We love our branded company swag — and we love to share it with our people! Every new employee receives a welcome package their first week with lots of Sovrn goodies. We also take every opportunity to create themed hats, T-shirts, water bottles, coffee mugs, and more, so our employees can sport their Sovrn gear with pride.
