What's Your Favourite Thing About Working at CoLab?
January 29, 2021
On the last Friday of January 2021, we thought we’d poll the team to find out what people like best about working at CoLab.
Here’s what folks had to say:
TL: The people, every last one of you.
Adam T: That we had a data-driven approach to approach the quality of coffee being brewed in the office.
Riley: I agree with TL, it's absolutely the people. Almost every other thing I could come up with--both funny and serious--can be traced back to being the result of the people who work here, in some way.
Steph: Because "people" has already been said, I'm gonna go with the love of a good pair of funky socks! (Not funky-smelling though-- that’s a completely different story.)
Tyler: The work hard, play hard environment. We work our butts off but also enjoy having events, enjoy each others’ company, hang out, etc. It’s the culture in general, tbh: honest, open, and not fake.
Christina: Trying not to say “the people”! So, our collective values. CoLab’s foundation is built upon people who care about continuous learning, kindness, and self-improvement--with a little sprinkling of humour, fun, and energy, too.
Matt: I'd say the best thing about working here is that everyone has a mutual respect for each other, and respect can really go a long way. I've worked in a handful of industries in various jobs and the inequality of respect amongst management and coworkers was just kind of the norm, so it really blew me away when I started here and I actually felt valued and respected.
Dan: The team agreement that Mr. Sub is a sandwich restaurant, whereas Subway is a taco restaurant.
Bob: The team agreement that hot dogs aren’t sandwiches.
Adam T: What if I put a hot dog between two pieces of bread?
Dan: @Adam T Then it's a hot dog sandwich.
Robert: Working with a respectful and honest leadership team that truly values the thoughts and opinions of each and every team member. So... the people.
