New Year is coming, and traditionally everyone is getting ready to analyze their year and to make conclusions. We are not an exception! 2019 was full of highs and lows, challenges and accomplishments. Would you mind diving into memories and reviewing our brightest moments together?
This year gave us a significant number of new talented co-workers, who enriched our culture and influenced Incora’s professional development.
We always take care of our employees’ comfort, so to house a larger team, we extended our office, separated an additional meeting room for negotiations, and built a new airy kitchen. Our office has become more spacious and cozy at the same time, especially the kitchen 🙂
We believe that team building is more than important for any team as they help to break barriers, facilitate better communication and just to foster a friendly spirit in a team. We had plenty of amazing events, retreats and corporate parties throughout this year! It has definitely motivated every team member, built trust between them and made the team way stronger.
One of the most important events of this year was the celebration of our 4th birthday! We had a great weekend at the picturesque location and we’ve just rocked it! Pool party, tennis, dances, sauna and many more activities with the team.
Our company strives to provide the best services for our customers, so we regularly attend major tech events to be updated about the latest trends. Also, the ability to grow and develop throughout the career leads to greater employee motivation and satisfaction. This year our employees had visited many interesting educational events where they could improve their professional skills. Here are some of them:
Node Ukraine Conference
Sales Management and Soft Skills Marathon at Lviv Business School (LvBS)
Relational Databases, which was co-hosted by Incora
Lviv Outsourcing Forum
How To Sell Conference
This event was the most prominent among others! Seeing the beauty of Portugal, learning about innovative tech, sharing experience and tones of inspiration, meeting potential partners and clients – this is all about 3 days of the summit. This trip turned out to be very productive and triggered a lot of negotiations with future partners.
The idea of a healthy lifestyle is very important for our team. We are sure that sports are a crucial part of a human’s growth and development. That’s why we strive to involve everyone to take part in all possible sport events. Throughout 2019 we run multiple marathons, went hiking, skiing, rafting and participated in many other sport activities.
This year Incora joined the IT football league, where we have weekly trainings and competitions. We can confidently say that it was an excellent decision as such time together makes us fit and builds our team.
In summer, two amazing Brazilian interns joined our team and became extremely valuable members of Incora family. It was the first time we engaged international team members and it appeared to be a fabulous experience for both our company and girls. Soon, we are going to engage one more talented intern from China and hope we will have great knowledge sharing again.
This year our team introduced educational courses for young developers. Incora held a coding camp where our CTO Tetiana and developers Dmytro, Andrew, and Bohdan conducted Node and Angular lessons. We are so proud of our lecturers who were leading the education process and providing mentorship for the guys. It was great to see the professional growth of our students and invite 2 of them to join our team afterwards. Now we have 2 talented junior developers – Nataliia and Roman.
One more important thing happened this year! We joined the Lviv IT Cluster. We are proud to be a part of this community and help to improve the business ecosystem in our city.
2019 brought us 13 wonderful clients and as a result of our collaboration – many interesting and successful projects. Our team is more than happy to hear their good feedback and satisfaction with the delivered work. We love our clients and sincerely value them, so we tend to prepare special presents for them on the occasion of the Christmas holidays!
