From karaoke, catering and fun games, our Geotab employees across southwestern Europe gathered to celebrate being together for the first time since pandemic.

Now that businesses have opened their doors, teams are looking to reconnect face-to-face. For employees, the benefits of team-building in-person are endless, from improved health and communication, to increased trust, respect and confidence at work.

 

Recently, Geotabbers across southwestern Europe did just that, gathering in Madrid to celebrate being together for the first time since the start of the global pandemic. 

 

While Geotab now has nearly 100 employees in the region, a large majority had not met their colleagues outside of a virtual environment due to COVID-19 restrictions. Team members who live in Madrid, Malaga, Barcelona and other municipalities in Spain formalized a special spring party at a local rooftop venue. To add to the celebration, there was also catering, karaoke and the chance to finally connect in person.

Geotabbers from across Spain, representing solutions engineering, firmware and hardware development, sales, product and support teams, gathered to celebrate and connect. 

A chance to collaborate in person 

“One of the most important parts is to build trust,” said Cristina Gomez, project manager for Geotab’s European operations. “Coming together face to face, you can start to know your colleagues better and build trust.”

 

Geotabbers marked the momentous reunion by voting on social superlatives, which included employees for kindest, funniest, most congenial and best snack giver, among other categories. One theme ingrained in Geotab’s core values shone above the rest throughout the event: the opportunity to collaborate within your community.  

 

“One of the most key things about Geotab is that we are always open for collaboration,” added Cristina. “The environment is super nice. When you have challenges, you can count on your colleagues, management and everyone because everyone is part of the community to support and work together. Teamwork is everywhere.”
