PowerChord, a leading SaaS company that transforms how brands drive local sales, believes investing in company culture inspires employee creativity, productivity, and collaboration.
In today’s fast-paced tech industry where innovation is a constant driver and employees are more connected to work than ever before, PowerChord recognizes the importance of investing in employees and company culture.
A local SaaS company based in downtown St. Petersburg, Florida, PowerChord’s digital solutions help manufacturers grow online engagement and in-store sales through their dealer networks. Established in 2001, the company was built on the philosophy that prioritizing a positive work environment leads to higher employee productivity, inspires more creativity, and increases overall collaboration.
Over the past 17 years, PowerChord has grown into an award-winning business that operates in 28 countries, 18 languages, and 11 currencies. As they’ve increased in size, they’ve put a significant emphasis on monthly company events to expand team building and encourage work-life balance.
PowerChord events include frequent potluck lunches and cook-offs, with competitions judged through Slack polls and winners receiving gift cards to local DTSP businesses. Off-site events include happy hours, Tampa Bay Rays games, and holiday charity drives.
These efforts culminate each year with an annual employee recognition event at the Sheraton Sand Key hotel on Clearwater beach. With employees based across the United States and in Europe, the summer beach event is designed to bring together the company’s entire team and their families to celebrate their hard work and many accomplishments throughout the year.
In addition to events, the company also emphasizes healthy lifestyles with a state-of-the-art kitchen that’s fully stocked each week with fresh produce, snacks and personal requests to fuel teams throughout the workday. In 2017, PowerChord also purchased brand new 36” curved monitors to increase productivity, helping employees to work smarter and not harder.
“We’re continuously striving to create a culture where employees feel valued and part of the bigger company mission,” said PowerChord CEO, Lanny Tucker. “It takes a village to deliver a global solution to our customers and the personal growth and well-being of our employees are a direct contribution to that success.”
“Today’s average employee is spending a third of their life in the office,” added Nicole Clemens, Manager of People & Culture. “This means it’s more important than ever to PowerChord’s mission to ensure we’re offering an environment that thrives on investing in our people – and that includes everything from career development to a community beer on a Friday afternoon.”
