COVID-19 Solution: Bring your workforce back into the office safely, compliantly, and successfully with Locatee Portfolio Insights

Already excited for the next ski season too?

We’ve been to winter wonderland. Watch what we’ve experienced at this year’s winter event!

Do you want to read in more detail what we’ve done? Don’t miss our blog post!

This was our winter team event in 2019, one of our two team events we have every year. Two of Locatee’s core values are “Friendship”, the ability to care about one another and have fun together, and “Passion”, which we can find in whatever we choose to do.

You won’t find a single Locateer who doesn’t agree with this, especially after having spent the most fantastic time together up in the mountains.

This meant once more that we set up our “Out of Office” notifications, traded in our laptops for skis & snowboards, put on our goggles and by the time we would usually be getting up in the morning, we were already on our way to the top of our first slope.

Benedikt, who could guide you through the area blindfolded, didn’t hesitate to lead us to the most adventurous slopes and to show us all the views. While Piotr was teaching himself to ollie and nollie on his board, and Charlotte was trying to catch up with the 70km/h speed of our rocket skiers, some were attending serious lessons on the magic carpet.

The best part was to see team building happening amongst everyone, although Philippe might beg to differ, given that he was covered in snow every time Sandro would pass’n’splash next to him 😉

“I had just started working at Locatee before the ski event. All I can say is that the team is as fun in the office as out of the office. Already looking forward to the summer event!”

– Simon Berg-Ahlmann

 

After such a day full of emotions, a taste of fun après-ski and a delicious raclette were well deserved. Wait, that’s not all; the craziest ones carried on well into the night, skiing until 10pm.

But our sore muscles did not get the rest they craved, since the activities on the following day included some very serious sledging. Before the action started, we enjoyed a lunch of delicious specialties from Grison, which was completed by the most fitting dessert: a concoction of lack of sledging skills with a side of fresh snow.

And this alpine experience concluded our weekend. Backpacks strapped on, we headed back home, eyes still sparkling and already looking forward to meeting again on Monday, when we would excitedly share stories of our fun in the cold over hot coffees.

Two beautiful, sunny days spent in fresh powder, oh wow! Moments like these remind us of the importance of friendship, and we’re proud of how highly Locatee values it.

We can’t wait to welcome new Locateers to our team and to introduce them to our cool company culture!

What’s behind all that brainpower of Locatee Workplace Analytics? Naturally, our smart Locateers!
And to be fully honest, quite some (Loca)tears are being shed – tears of joy, that is! Because the Locatee Family is one to have fun, be it at work, wracking our brains until the cells hurt, or after work, practicing the Sun Salutation in our recently introduced in-house yoga sessions, or competing in a friendly game of Taboo. Feeling curious yet?

Locatee’s team events have proven to be unforgettable:
On our trip to the winter wonderland, we did some serious sledging, had team members who only know sunshine and flowers try skiing for the first time, and challenged each other at curling.
Since at Locatee, fortunes never come singly, there’s still more to tell… Have we talked about our visit to Bern yet? No? Well then it’s high time we did!
Our summer event took us all the way to the Swiss capital, where we took turns hitting the Nouss, climbed up and down the Gurten, and chased a fox through the old town. To make it sound less cryptic: In order to immerse our international team in Swiss culture, we journeyed to Bern. Having started the day with coffee and crispy croissants, we learned about and played the very old, traditional Swiss sport Hornussen. Those who love and those who fear heights alike then climbed the watch tower on Bern’s backyard mountain Gurten, before we took part in a treasure hunt, on which actual bears were seen, ice cream was devoured, light posts were sniffed at, and the river Aare was celebrated in a song. This eventful trip ended with us enjoying a summer night in the Rose Garden, raising glasses and revelling in delicacies.

However, this marvellous journey was no more than a puddle jump if compared to the 75’046km our globetrotters travelled on their Work Wherever You Want weeks.
Alex savoured the best ever hummus in Berlin, Flurin watched Roger Federer drop out of the US open in New York, Benedikt experienced a digital nomad’s lifestyle in Tokyo, and Artjom discovered his ravenous appetite for pineapples in Thailand.
And, whenever our co-workers, for example Gianluca or Sandro, go on business trips, they make good use of the opportunity and explore metropolitan cities like London and Amsterdam. We’re all for a healthy work-life-balance!

Let’s turn to diversity: a topic in constant danger of being discussed with empty words and of losing its essence in endless blether. So, we’re keeping it true and simple: We live diversity! Or as Mariel would say «Vivimos la diversidad», Niko «Ζούμε τη διαφορετικότητα», or Piotr «Cenimy różnorodność», Svenja «Mer läbed Diversität» and last but not least Charlotte: «Nous vivons la diversité». And these are only a few select examples.

Our story began with Benedikt and Thomas, and we’ve been growing ever since, with no end in sight. This regularly calls for celebration: Last year was our 3rd birthday and we gifted ourselves with the self-designed Locabeer. By now, we’ve come to a point where there’s a welcome breakfast for new team members almost every month: here at Locatee, the early birds don’t catch worms but rather tasty croissants, and on some occasions even homemade banana bread. Our increasing numbers finally allowed us to move house – right into our first office!

Locatee is the brain behind the operation, but it’s our employees who get it up and running in the first place and feed it constantly with new ideas, increasing our shared knowledge with every single new Locateer. At Locatee, we’re in it for the fun of it. Why else would we be sending out season’s greetings all over the world in the form of chocolate brains? And if you’re thinking we need special occasions in order to have fun together, you couldn’t be more wrong. Find out yourself!

Locatee’s journey has been exciting to say the least. Today, we are operating across 6 continents in 20+ countries and our team has grown from 2 to…30!

Because building a company is about building a strong team, collaboration is a key factor for us. Through a flat organisation we encourage innovation, ownership and open communication so that everybody feels engaged in the dynamic of the group.

Benedikt and Thomas succeeded in transmitting every Locateer the excitement and engagement in the project: the result is a team heading in the same direction and communicating the same passion to the new joiners. Our fast-growing team is young, multi-cultural, passionate and talented that shares and cares for each other. Also, we live diversity and speak 10 different languages!

Our motto is to create a work environment where people want to work, not need to. This is not only our working culture but also what we want our customers to reach thanks to Locatee Analytics.

Let’s double again in the coming year! Take us to the next level and join us on our mission! Check out our job opportunities – you are also welcome to send us spontaneous applications, if you feel you can bring value to the team. Join Locatee’s Journey!
