A few weeks ago, we held our first Virtual Payara Day of 2022. This is our quarterly online conference, and has evolved from business updates to a way of forging connections in a remote, global team.
This Friday is Virtual Payara Day – a quarterly event that looks quite different from our first-ever Virtual Payara Day (VPD) in 2018, despite the consistent success of VPD since then. Once we kick off a recurring event like this that receives glowing results, isn’t it easy to publish our template and rest on our laurels? However, because the needs and culture of a business are always developing, no template should be rid of that “edit” button. At Payara, the evolution of VPD is a useful example of how an already successful event can be improved by remaining alive and responsive.
Earlier this year, Payara Services was honoured with a Queen’s Award for Enterprise – International Trade. This is the UK’s most prestigious business award, often called the “Knighthood for Businesses”.
Long-time followers of Team Payara will know that Payara Week is our annual company-wide event. It’s our opportunity for team bonding, to discuss and develop ideas for Payara’s future success, and, most importantly, have lots of fun!
Last year, our fourth Payara Week took place at our Portugal office, located in Funchal on the island of Madeira. The fantastic event energised the team, and as the time for the fifth of these exciting company summits rolled round, we were faced with the question – what would Payara Week look like when pandemic-related restrictions meant it had to be virtual?
The answer? Thanks to the invention, imagination and innovation of our HR and Engagement team – and the fantastic attitude of Payarans all over the globe – Payara Week was just as creative, inspiring and relationship-building than in previous years!
