Cultivating Connection in a Remote World: How Our 5 Core Values Enhance Company Culture

Juli Loomis

Keeping a social, healthy, and connected culture in a remote environment can be difficult, but we’ve been lucky to think of ways to work around these challenges, and to harness a positive environment with thriving work relationships.

How is this possible?

One of the many ways we encourage a healthy culture is by implementing five key core values for Intrinsic Digital that we use as a guiding force in our internal interactions and our business with our clients: accountability, authenticity, caring, surprise & delight, and x-ray vision.

Each month we have our team members anonymously nominate their colleagues that represented these core values and award a small token to winners.

Last month, we were due to nominate the person in our company that best represented the core value: Caring. We set the expectation for caring to mean: "Showing genuine concern and respect for our clients, each other, and our communities through giving back and taking time."

Our winner for “caring” was Madelyn Chappelear AKA Madchap! Madelyn is our Digital Marketing Manager, and she does an exceptional job at running her team and overseeing each and every campaign for our clients! 

See what our team members had to say about Madelyn in their nomination submissions: 

"Madchap is so friendly and easy to talk to. She cares for everyone on her team and goes above and beyond every day. So happy she's here!"

"Madchap used her own money to purchase and send Christmas gifts to her entire team. Even her choice of gift was thoughtful and caring - ergonomic mice so they don't get strained from all the mouse work they have to do!"

"MadChap is caring because she's always very conscious of our workloads and genuinely cares about how we're doing. She's also very quick to lend a helping hand and is always happy to do so."

"For Joey Brown and Madchap: Both are always willing and ready to give a lending hand, always ready to help provide solutions to problems and always showing genuine concern for the team and clients. They exemplify this core value without even trying!"

"She really cares about the team members and always be there to help out."

February’s core value is Surpise & Delight: "We actively look for opportunities to deliver unexpected value and exceed expectations with everyone we work with. Exercising our core values is intrinsic to us."
