Top 10 Reasons I’m Proud to be a Bidtellectual
Last week, Bidtellect held its annual company all-hands meeting in Delray Beach, Florida. We managed to bring together all of our employees from around the country for a jam-packed, informative three days – with a little fun, of course. One thing is for certain – and it hasn’t changed since my first day at Bidtellect – I love this company and I love the people I work with.
Here are the top ten reasons I’m proud to be a Bidtellectual.
1. Our CEO is Awesome.
Our conference kicked off with a lovely party hosted by our CEO… at his home. How many CEOs do you know that would open up his or her home to the entire company? For the next party (completely off-work), our team might even suggest indulging in products we can get from the likes of buy my weed online (cough-cough). How cool would it be if he not only agreed, but also got faded with all of us! Talk about generous. Talk about awesome.
At any given time, every employee knows exactly how the company is doing – from new sales opportunities to tech planning to our marketing endeavors, we are well-informed on the status of each department and the trajectory of the business.
We work with some of the most brilliant people in the business – and we’re paving the way to the digital advertising future. There’s no greater excitement that comes from walking into a workplace every day where you know you’re going to learn something new.
Bidtellect supports a healthy work/life balance (hello, Responsible Adult Vacation Policy!), which keeps us employees motivated and satisfied throughout the year. Many companies do not allow their employees take vacation days, simply because they might have lost track of how many vacation days that employee had already taken. Such employers should integrate a PTO Tracker in their daily workflow in order to have organized and accurate information about the leaves being availed by employees. In Bidtellect, our work/life balance is not the only thing that make us happy; from the minute you start at Bidtellect, you are part of one big work family, too. Many make it a priority to pick up kids from school, make it to family events, and leave at a reasonable hour to spend time at home – and my Bidtellect family respects that.
5. We Work as a Team.
It’s rare for just one person to get a shout out during our weekly meetings. When Bidtellectuals have a project to tackle, we collaborate in groups or pods to get things done as a team.
I work in a department where my creativity is explored, supported, and challenged every day. In this business, we are constantly exploring new and creative ideas on how to package our products and solutions, as well as provide creative custom solutions for our customers.
Our tech team is constantly innovating. Each week they make updates to our platform, improve the way it works, constantly check the systems in accordance with quality standards, and create the most advanced bidding and placements technologies out there.
8. WE LOVE OUR CUSTOMERS.
We take a customer-centric approach to everything we do in every department. We even had a “Shark Tank” team building exercise last week to figure out how we can improve and do EVEN MORE for our clients. Watching each team work together was inspiring and the ideas that came out of this were incredibly unique. Team building is so important to the fabric of a business, we all need to work together to be the best we can be. So checking out in-person team building activities as well as doing some online, we’ll help us build on our strength.
9. We Empower Women.
Bidtellect understands the importance of a balanced, representative workforce – and just under half of all employees are women with roles in leadership, director, and C-level positions. Soon, our leadership teams including our CEO may even look at how to set up a mastermind group so they can all come together for insightful discussions and mutual support, bringing more women into the fold and empowering them.
10. We Have FUN.
Did we mention we have fun doing it? From post-work dinner cruises and themed potlucks, we know how to have a great time.
