Maintaining well-being and a healthy culture while working hard in a crisis mode.


Tech companies have a reputation for being all about fun. And to some extent - it's true! We do have a lot of fun.

But beyond the fun - we do focus on solving complex problems, sometimes requiring us to build things that don't exist yet.

Maintaining well-being and a healthy culture is therefore extremely crucial. But how do you make the best out of crisis mode? 

In this very open talk we will share what we do to keep the fun, but beyond that - build a resilience mind-set and encourage physical and mental well-being amongst our people. Challenges will also be brought to light.
