Ep178: Company Culture & The Importance of Snow Days

25 minutes

Remember snow days? Remember how exciting it was to have that found day? It’s important to find ways to incorporate these experiences into your lives, even when everything is virtual. 

Why is that important for business? 

It’s also important to create these experiences – these blips of normality or shared experience – in your business as well. We talk about the quantitative parts of business often, but the qualitative experience is just as important – how people feel is not something to be overlooked. Culture for companies is often talked about as an “other” thing that lives in its own room, when it is more like interstitial tissue woven through everything. 

Sometimes, it is as simple as refusing to forfeit some of the joy that come with normality. 

Especially as go into winter, with the weight of not having many things to look forward to and lacking spontaneous found joys that come with semi-quarantine, we have to be mindful about how to incorporate snow day energy into our businesses and our lives. We need more emphasis on seeing see people and interactions beyond the transactional. The interpersonal is a chance to create another texture to the conversation that is missing.
