Photographic evidence suggests that our Vilnius office gang can sure have a good time even during a pandemic
During the past year, Lithuanians often jokingly told each other how badly they were waiting for the pandemic to be over so they could leave behind the universal social distancing standard of 2 meters and return to their Lithuanian comfort zone of 4 meters.
However, it turned out that in reality, our crew in Lithuanian really misses working and hanging out together. Apart from being an innovative groundbreaking tech company, Wix has always been known as a fun place to work in, with lots of collaborative team building activities. Since we’ve always valued this culture, we made sure to make any effort to preserve it in all circumstances, and this past year hasn’t been different.
Wix Lithuania's Country Manager, Monika Laukaitė, says that talking to our employees before choosing the type of activities, is crucial. “We don’t meet colleagues in the corridor or by coffee machine anymore, but we do talk with people all the time and try to understand what their needs are and what are their family’s needs. It’s like talking to our users”, she says.
“These discussions led to many ideas, and as a result outdoor activities were initiated because people asked for anything that’s not on Zoom and outdoor activities are probably the safest option nowadays. The pandemic showed how much we love talking, being together and how much we miss each other. When we produced our annual Winter party this year - which was online - we realized that we can even dance together, remotely. It really doesn’t matter if you work in an office or remotely, but it’s important to feel that you belong to some kind of community”.
Here are just a few examples of the things our Vilnius team has been doing together in the past year or so, apart from working.
