When companies go global, it’s sometimes difficult to maintain a strong and integrated company culture. Conference calls and emails help business run smoothly between continents, but that sense of fun and play can get lost along the way. At Peer 1, culture is everything, and as we continue to grow and expand, we strive to reinforce a single, unifying Peer 1 culture.
At Peer 1, we are often inspired by our Peers to raise money for the different charities they are passionate about. In just 2 years we’ve raised almost £7,000 for various charities including; the Lullaby Trust, Rowans Hospice, Kidney Research, Cystic Fibrosis, British Heart Foundation and, our latest addition, Prostate Cancer.
The World Cup has finished, and the excitement over Germany’s victory is starting to wind down. The masses of people from across the globe that flooded to Brazil have returned to their respective countries, some much happier than others with the result. But Germany is not the only country that took home a win. Following on from our article around the impact of the world cup online, we had a look to see what effect the World Cup really had online.
At Peer 1, we know how important it is to make new connections and maintain them. We also understand how building relationships with local businesses is central to contributing to a better community. That’s why, in spirit of the World Cup 2014, we are excited to play football match with our friends over at EtchUK today.
What was the underlying theme of yesterday’s eCommerce Futures conference? I’d say it was the paramount importance of knowing your customer – and therefore of mastering the many techniques that now exist for extending and deepening that knowledge.
At Peer 1, we are strong believers that anything is possible. Whether that means reaching our goals as a company, or supporting the goals of our peers externally, we aim to spread a culture of determination and perseverance as far as possible.
