Creating this type of culture is important given how quickly the site is expanding. In just over a year, the Dublin office has grown over four times in size from 23 to 110 employees. As an international technology hub within Europe, we’re attracting the best tech talent across a variety of new roles within Sales, Solution Consulting, Engineering, Internationalization, Finance, Legal, Marketing, and other functions. Every month, the Dublin office welcomes six to seven new starters from over 25 different nationalities, across a broad age range (from mid-20s to mid-60s), into a variety of functions. “Each time a new person joins the team, it brings something new and dynamic to the office,” shares Maeve. “Although numbers are growing, we still want to create that strong cultural feel.”
A focus area for the Culture Champion team this year has been how to continue to strengthen the culture in our COVID-19 world where all our employees are currently working from home and our newest employees have never met their colleagues face-to-face. “It’s in our DNA to create a culture of belonging,” explains Maeve. “So instead of stopping us, COVID-19 has made us stronger by encouraging us to find new ways to stay connected.” The monthly face-to-face socials have turned into virtual coffee mornings and the very competitive “Quarantine Quiz.” Our weekly yoga and fitness classes are now online, and we still bring kids to work by inviting them to join in on our virtual magician shows for the whole family. Additionally, Dublin is also active in our Global Impact work, recently joining forces with colleagues in the UK to create ServiceNow’s first virtual Giving at Now week. Through employee donations, which were matched by ServiceNow, we raised $10,000 in one week for four charities in the UK and Ireland including Focus Ireland and the Dublin Rape Crisis Centre. “We are still the same company and team, we’ve just found new ways of keeping connected. No matter how much we grow and what challenges we may face in the future.”
