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: Surprise and Delight. We set the expectation for caring to mean: "We actively look for opportunities to deliver unexpected value and exceed expectations with everyone we work with."

Our winner for “Surprise and Delight" was Joseph "Joey" Brown! Joey is one of our Campaign Success Coordinators, and he consistently knocks it out of the park in setting up our client's campaigns and providing thorough insights on a recurring basis.

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

"Joey is very knowledgeable and I love that he is willing to help different departments in different ways. He is truly an asset and wants to see the company grow!"

"Joey constantly exemplifies Surprise & Delight! When he is caught up on his work, he doesn't just take a break, he goes to his team members' plates and see's where he can help. He is a fantastic team player and a reliable individual!"

"Joey is constantly raising his hand to get involved in special projects or help others in any way he can. He is always looking for ways to help improve the company."
