When you spend more time in the office than you do at home, you should enjoy it, right? We believe that having a work-life balance (or work-life blend, whichever you prefer) is essential to a healthy and happy life. Want to see how we spend time together? Check out our Facebook page.
By having the right tools in place (fast laptop, reliable VPN, robust network), you can work anywhere you need: in the office, your home, or in the field. With cloud-based productivity tools like Slack, Google Apps, PlanGrid, Asana, Google Meet, and Confluence, you will feel connected to the team just as if you were sitting with them. We will even help you customize your IT equipment to fit your exact needs. Who doesn’t love that?!
Culture of teamwork
Teamwork permeates the TEECOM culture. Whether it’s collaborating on a project, innovating future possibilities in the built environment, inspiring our clients, or celebrating an event, our team enjoys solving problems together. We believe real-time working sessions among team members strengthen relationships and increase efficiency. As a team we integrate a variety of perspectives and generate solutions that are often innovative and always effective. Inspiration can come from anywhere: from our core leadership, from our administrative team, or from day-to-day interactions. Our team accomplishes more together than any person could alone.
Everyone (OK, mostly everyone) loves being recognized one way or another. We offer a multitude of ways to do this. Whether it is on our video wall, social media, Slack, GOM (general office meeting), or Bonusly points from your fellow co-worker, whatever it is, if you do something amazing we want everyone to know about it.
Your voice matters
We listen. Everyone at TEECOM has a voice and an opportunity to be heard. If you have an idea to make the office better, or a new tool or process that you think we should start using, let everyone know. We are not afraid to implement new things. “Our best ideas are the ones that come directly from our employees,” says David Marks, TEECOM’s CEO. Whether you prefer to share via David’s weekly one-on-one employee lunch feedback meetings, or through the tool OfficeVibe, you choose your channel.
Having a comfortable office environment and opportunities to get away from your desk just makes the work day better. Not only does TEECOM provide drinks and snacks, but we host themed happy hours, catered lunches, and vendor lunch & learns, all of which strengthen our culture of teamwork. Families are invited to our annual summer party and to our kids’ holiday party, where Santa makes an appearance. We celebrate birthdays and work anniversaries with Bonusly bucks ($100 on your anniversary and $50 on your birthday) and Slack announcements.
By integrating exercise into the work day, we also make it easy to get moving. Our TEECOMfit weekly challenges, stretching sessions, and team walks offer something for everyone. Every employee receives a FitBit so they can track their progress if they want to, and we hold an annual Wellness Fair to evaluate our progress, set appropriate challenges, and eat healthy (and delicious) food. If none of that inspires you to move, join our softball team!
Giving Back Opportunities
We come from our communities, and we think it’s important to give back to them. We organize philanthropic campaigns throughout the year. From our annual Earth Day event, to regularly volunteering at the Alameda County Community Food Bank, to yearly participation in Bike to Hope, we always look for ways where we can make a difference. In fact, TEECOM was recognized as a Top Corporate Philanthropist by the San Francisco Business Journal!
What if you could double your contribution? Yes, you heard correctly! For every dollar that you donate, TEECOM will match that dollar, doubling the benefits to your philanthropy. If you support the cause, then so does TEECOM. Check out our Giving Back page to learn more.
Work on Innovative Projects
