We believe that work should be more than just a job. We want our employees to feel like they are part of a vibrant and inclusive community. Our recent Ice Cream Day was a great example of this commitment. We provided free ice cream for all employees, and it was a great way for people to come together and connect.
Ice Cream Day on July 26, 2023 was a rainy day, but it didn't dampen the spirits of our employees. Scream Truck brought us ice cream, and we turned the company's premises into a colorful and joyous haven. Everyone had smiles as wide as the assortment of flavors they enjoyed. But more than just a chance to eat ice cream, it was a celebration of camaraderie and teamwork, reflecting our company's core values.
Time to chill and connect
Ice Cream Day was an opportunity for the Online Computers team to take a collective breather from their daily tasks and bond over shared moments of enjoyment. It created a space where the newest intern and the seasoned executive, the brilliant coder and the creative designer, all converged on a level playing field, united by the universal delight of a delectable scoop of ice cream.
In the fast-paced tech world, such gatherings are touchpoints that allow employees to recharge and return to work with renewed enthusiasm. They provide a platform for team members to step away from their screens, engage in conversations, and strengthen the sense of belonging within the Online Computers family.
Alignment with our core values
Ice Cream Day perfectly encapsulates Online Computers' core values. It showcases the company's commitment to nurturing an inclusive and diverse workplace that celebrates employees' contributions.
It also underscored Online Computers' commitment to fostering a healthy work-life balance. We believe in investing in the well-being of our employees, and we understand that a balanced work-life equation translates to enhanced productivity and creativity.
Above all, in an era where people’s interactions are often mediated by digital interfaces, Ice Cream Day is a reminder to momentarily disengage from our virtual realms and embrace the tangible world around us.
As colleagues mingled, swapped stories, and forged relationships that extended beyond their usual work conversations, we once again discovered the magic of authentic human connections.
