Here at Simpleview, one of our core values is “people.” We choose to work with friendly, talented people who value diversity and teamwork. In celebration of that core value, we host an annual company retreat, in which employees from around the world join us at our headquarters in Tucson, Arizona, for two days of reflection, inspiration and collaboration.
This year’s retreat theme was movies, which was evident in everything from the popcorn centerpieces to the custom movie posters for each department. We kicked off day one with a speech from our CEO, Ryan George, immediately followed by presentations from multiple departments within the company.
Throughout the day, several employees joined us on stage to speak publicly about some of their biggest wins for 2019 and share their achievements with their peers.
During breaks, our staff participated in this year’s community service initiative: building hygiene kits for Heart-to-Heart international, an organization that works to provide humanitarian development and administer crisis relief worldwide.
We were also joined by Soulaima Gourani, author and TED mentor, who gave an exciting keynote speech on how to strengthen relationships and turn customers into fans.
Of course, we capped the event off with our annual staff party, this time hosted at Culinary Dropout. It was an evening filled with food, fun and friends!
