When Akoyans suggested during our August retreat that making trips to our Pittsburgh office would be beneficial, we made it happen. In November, December, and January, small groups of Akoyans based outside the Steel City made overnight trips to visit home base.
The meetings, dubbed Facetime @ Akoya, were a fantastic way for coworkers to further solidify connections made with each other in August and gave us the opportunity to brainstorm ways to make those connections even stronger. Discussions centered around how to improve the onboarding process for new employees working outside Pittsburgh and ways to replicate Akoya’s company culture at a client site where many of us work in Falls Church, Virginia.
Akoyans appreciated the opportunity to see Akoya headquarters, work with Pittsburgh staff, and learn firsthand why Honest John’s is so special to our president, Holly Wray. We look forward to making Facetime a regular gathering.
