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 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 six 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, X-Ray Vision, and Neutralevity.

Each month we have our team members anonymously nominate their colleagues who represented these Core Values and award a small token to winners.

Last month, we were due to nominate the person in our company who best represented the Core Value: Neutralevity.

We set the expectation for Neutralevity to mean: "We embrace neutrality on social causes and rely on levity to create an environment where we never take ourselves too seriously."

We had a tie! Our winners for Neutralevity were Gabby Deschaine & Lori DiGirolamo!
