Since our inception in 2012, ViralGains, honored with Digiday’s WorkLife 50 award, has consistently nurtured a culture that extends beyond the confines of traditional office norms. In the days of our former Seaport office, the symphony of nerf gun battles was the soundtrack of our day-to-day life. Today, we have replaced the physical walls of our office with the freedom for employees to craft their professional narratives from the sanctuary of their chosen environments.
As we flourish within these diverse spaces, we recognize that the true strength of ViralGains lies in the connections we cultivate with one another. We understand that the essence of our collaboration is not bound by physical walls, inspiring us to constantly explore innovative ways to bridge the digital gap and bring our team closer together.
Recently, Blythe Spiegel, our exceptional Director of People & Culture, orchestrated a transformative all-hands meeting that seamlessly transcended the digital realm—it was an experience that resonated like the comfort of home.
The event unfolded with a dynamic day featuring face-to-face meetings, team updates, and collaborative brainstorming sessions. Our team-building activity took place at Action Kitchen in Seaport, where the entire VG family delved into the art of cooking. The goal was not just to create delicious dishes but to collaborate, communicate, and strengthen the bonds that are often forged in the kitchen. The aroma of teamwork filled the air as we chopped, stirred, and plated our way through a culinary adventure.
Amidst clinking spatulas and echoing laughter, it became evident that our team was more than algorithms, analytics, or digital ads—it was a family coming together to create something truly special.
Looking ahead, we remain committed to innovation, collaboration, and the continuous exploration of ways to strengthen the bonds within our team. Our journey is a testament to the belief that, even in a remote-first work setting, the essence of a thriving workplace is found in the genuine connections we build, irrespective of the physical spaces that may separate us. As ViralGains continues to evolve, we carry forward the spirit of teamwork, creativity, and a shared commitment to excellence that defines our unique culture.
