With the passing of Valentine’s Day yesterday, love is in the air and conversation hearts are a plenty! This time of the year makes me reflect on my Valentines and Galentines. Working with such powerhouse co-workers at a PR agency, I’ve realized that your work wives (and husbands!) are the best Galentines out there. Here are a few reasons why:
- You spend more time with them than anyone else. Let’s be honest, between working normal hours, traveling for meetings, trade shows, etc. you spend way more time with your co-workers than you do with your significant others and as such they truly do become your family. I have worked at Konnect for almost 3 years and between late night working hours, holiday company trips, and day-to-day work in our open concept office, I know our team well and love spending time with them.
- They know your strengths. Working with a strong team at a public relations agency, you work on a variety of accounts and tackle a plethora of tasks. Your team knows and appreciates your strengths that help all of the pieces of an account puzzle fit together.
- They pump you up. At Konnect, our teams love to shower each other in praise for a job well done, whether it’s surrounding an incredible piece of press, an exciting announcement, employee promotion, anniversary, etc. Your co-workers understand your day-to-day work and celebrate your wins right along with you! At Konnect we have started implementing “Good News” on Mondays and Fridays to share in our team victories and to get to know one another better.
It’s clear, your work family is the ultimate valentine/Galentine and we should celebrate that more than one day of the year! Feeling very fortunate to work with such a phenomenal team and collaborative work environment at a public relations agency.
