In today’s business world, it’s very common for just about any company to have some form of corporate core values. This seems to be especially true in tech, with industry giants like Apple, Google and Microsoft leading the way.
However, as many core values center around the premise of empowering employees to achieve high levels of customer satisfaction, sometimes these values lose sight of what’s truly important. In particular, when it comes to the work environment and wellness of a company’s team members.
This is one of the reasons why, at CloudSphere, we have incorporated the core value of Fun into our everyday work ethos. It is a cornerstone of our modern and progressive workplace environment, and we hold it in high regard, right alongside our other more “serious” values.
In this blog post, we’ll delve into how Fun takes on a fresh significance in the context of CloudSphere, and why it’s an indispensable element of our contemporary, forward-thinking company culture.
