Last week, the FastSpring team ventured to Zodos Bowling to celebrate the second annual company-wide bowling tournament.
To jump-start the festivities, FastSpring employees enjoyed delicious food and were divided into 9 teams to compete against each other. Adding to the bright lights of the scoreboard and scuffle of bowling shoes was a friendly atmosphere of competition.
Everyone brought their A-game for a chance to become the ultimate FastSpring bowling champion!
Win or lose, everyone had a great time. See what some of our employees had to say about their experience:
“I believe celebrating success is critical. These events reinforce FastSpring values and their commitment to its employees. It was amazing to see great bowlers duke it out for the grand prize!” – Jorge Solis, Senior Product Manager
“These types of events are a great way to get to know other people in the company that you normally wouldn’t interact with. It builds morale, and it’s something fun to look forward to!”– Marcella Tambouris, Business Development Representative
When they weren’t hovering over the scoreboards or enthusiastically cheering for their teammates, FastSpringers spent their time chatting over drinks and enjoying each other’s company.
“I really enjoyed hanging out with coworkers. When the bowling ended, some of us stayed and hung out while playing ping pong.” – Lesley Khuu, Software Engineer
“I’m realizing more and more how much work place relationships matter because almost all departments interact with each other in some way. If we’re not asking someone from another department a question, we are working together with them or informing them of something. Basically, communication is key, especially in a relatively small start-up and fast-paced environment like we have at FastSpring, so it’s good to learn to communicate with each other both at and outside of work.” – Sarah Raymond, Chargeback Processor
At FastSpring we believe it’s important to foster a culture that values both hard work and fun. We understand that great products are built by teams that work hard, think smart and interact well, which is why we take pride in building a work environment built on collaboration.
