In a world where remote work has become the new norm, moreover, Localyze, a trailblazer in flexible work practices, has teamed up with Smartway to create an offsite retreat that promises to be truly exceptional. During an exclusive interview, Sam, a dedicated employee at Localyze, shared the exciting details of their collaboration and the significant value that Smartway brings to this remarkable offsite adventure.
Building Connections Beyond Virtual Collaboration: Localyze’s Bold Step and Offsite Adventure
Localyze closed physical offices, embracing remote collaboration and expanding the global network of “localitos”. Sam revealed, “We found that the team was just as successful and impactful working from home.” This realization led to an expansion of their global network of employees, affectionately referred to as “localitos,” and the implementation of unique perks to support their remote workforce. Sam explained, “We have a budget per employee per quarter that can be used for meetups with other localitos or for home office equipment to enhance productivity and comfort.”
However, Localyze didn’t stop at redefining remote work. They recognized the importance of fostering personal connections and decided to organize an offsite retreat. Sam shared, “Half of our team members haven’t met each other in person. They’ve never had the opportunity to meet face to face.” This revelation underscores the significance of bringing the team together for a collective experience that transcends virtual collaboration.
“It’s been really nice to be able to connect with people so easily, rather than trying to find someone in a big resort. So, I’ve really enjoyed being in the village, and also that kind of sense of community.”Natasha – Events Marketing Manager @ Localyze
Enter Smartway, renowned for curating purposeful offsite retreats. The decision to partner with Smartway was driven by their shared values and a mutual commitment to making an impact. Sam explained, “We resonate with Smartway’s mission and their desire to give back to the community, particularly here in Montepulciano.” As a result, the Localyze team is excited to be part of something greater, contributing to the revitalization of the local community while forging lasting connections.
We have chosen Montepulciano, a picturesque town steeped in charm and intrigue, as the backdrop for this extraordinary offsite adventure. During the retreat, the team gets to immerse themselves in a vibrant real-life setting, stepping out of the virtual realm. Sam enthusiastically expressed, “We can wander the streets and experience something completely new, seizing this once-in-a-lifetime chance to be together in this remarkable location.”
