2020 will forever go down as the year that changed almost everything.
As a company supporting the events industry, we saw first-hand how the pandemic forced marketers and other event creators to adapt and get creative.
As an employer, we’ve seen how the pandemic has changed the way we work. We’ve seen how it has intensified the way we care for our families — and ourselves. We’ve seen how the fight for equal rights has encouraged diverse groups of people to come together and support each other through the toughest of times. And we’ve learned that it’s okay to not be okay all the time.
It’s years like 2020 that bring up truly important questions, like What does all of this mean for our employees and how will it influence the future of work?
At Splash, we like to be real, so there’s no sugarcoating it: 2020 was hard. Like many other companies, we had to make difficult decisions, pivot quickly, and challenge our old beliefs. It was through those experiences that we learned three things: We needed to be more intentional about our decisions, we can’t take our culture for granted, and it’s more important than ever that we help our employees take care of themselves.
So in that spirit, we reevaluated our benefits to make sure we continue adapting as a company and giving our employees the support they need to always bring their best selves to work.
