The Bloomreach Way: Embracing Virtual Work and Empowering Employees
By Lucie Cisarova
As the world of work continues to evolve, remote work has become increasingly prevalent, especially with technology making it easier to work from anywhere. At Bloomreach, we’ve embraced this approach and have become a virtual-first company. Join us as we take a closer look at what it means to be “virtual-first” at Bloomreach.
At Bloomreach, we're proud to say that we're a virtual-first company. This means that we prioritize virtual communication, collaboration, and productivity, while also giving our employees the freedom to choose where to work from. But don't worry — if you're someone who thrives on in-person interactions, we also offer office hubs around the world, from the US to Europe and India. Whether you prefer the comfort of your own home or the hustle and bustle of an office, we've got you covered at Bloomreach.
Have you ever wondered why we don't require our employees to come into the office on a regular basis? At Bloomreach, we understand that virtual work has countless benefits, including increased productivity, job satisfaction, work-life balance, and reduced commuting time. But that's not all — being a virtual-first company also allows us to tap into a wider pool of talent, bringing in the best and brightest from all corners of the world. At Bloomreach, we value responsible freedom and believe that our employees should have the flexibility to choose the work environment that best suits them. Our employees are free to take calls during leisurely walks or step away for a moment to care for their loved ones, and we trust them to manage their time and responsibilities in a way that works for them.
Working at Bloomreach means you'll have access to a wealth of resources and support to achieve our company's goals, no matter where you choose to work. Our culture is built around empowering employees to take control of their work and find success with the freedom to manage their own schedules and responsibilities. We provide a clear understanding of company-wide goals that cascade down to departments, teams, and individuals. This allows everyone to know their priorities and expected outcomes for each quarter, and we give people ownership to achieve them. We offer a wide range of benefits to ensure our employees have everything they need to succeed, from top-of-the-line laptops to budget for work-from-home equipment, and even access to coaching and online courses.
And we don't stop there — we also provide a quarterly budget for team-building activities, whether it's in person or online, to help teams stay connected and engaged no matter where they are in the world. At Bloomreach, we believe that trust and collaboration are the keys to success, and our culture reflects that every step of the way.
We believe that building strong relationships with colleagues is essential, even in a virtual-first company. That's why we organize a variety of exciting in-person events and activities throughout the year, bringing our colleagues together from around the world. Our hubs host regular events like company breakfasts, after-work gatherings, and sports activities, creating a vibrant and supportive community for all Bloomreachers. Our departments also have the opportunity to attend offsites where they can deepen their human connections, align on strategy, and learn from each other rather than simply listening to presentations or looking at decks. We believe that these offsites are an invaluable opportunity for our teams to build strong relationships, foster a sense of community, and collaborate effectively. We know that strong relationships are the key to success, no matter where you work from.
