It’s almost time to “gobble” up some turkey, stuffing and pie, and we’ve been thinking of all the things we’re thankful for here at our office in Kansas City. They're just part of what makes it awesome to work at Balance Innovations!
We know after you see this, you’re going to want to join our team, so let’s dive in:
We work hard, but we also know how to have a good time. From company-wide lunches to happy hours to Kansas City Corporate Challenge, we have a blast together. We also like to mix it up with camaraderie-building activities like casual ping pong tournaments and scavenger hunts that have all our employees running around downtown Kansas City.
2. Family-friendly atmosphere
When you love your work as much as we do, you want to make sure your family is part of the team too. We have a great time hosting family events like our summer picnic and Halloween party. Bring Your Kid to Work Day gives children a peek into what their parents do all day, and scheduled activities keep them entertained. If you’re the parent of a four-legged child, we also allow pets in the office. Plus, it just feels like family here, you know?
It’s might not be flip-flop weather here in Kansas City right now, but if we'd like to feel the chilly air on our toes, we’re free to do so. Our casual dress code allows employees to express their unique style and dress comfortably in the office. Let’s face it – developing an amazing platform would be pretty tough in a suit and tie, right?
4. Flexible schedules
For those of us who need something outside an 8-to-5 work day, we are able to alter our schedules to meet the needs of home or family. Whether you need a bit of a later start to get the kids to school or prefer to be an early bird and beat traffic, we do our best to accommodate our employees’ needs. Plus, our generous vacation policy ensures employees get the breaks they need.
5. Flourishing employees
At Balance Innovations, we know that individual growth helps us work better together as a team. That’s why we invest in career development and training opportunities for our employees every year — to make sure they have the knowledge and skills they need to do their best for our team and our customers.
2016 has been another great year at Balance Innovations, and we’re all grateful for a great place to work heading into the new year. Think you might like to get in on the action? Check out our careers page and learn about our open positions!
