Work really hard. [Period.] Play really hard. [Period.]
I don’t know when the emphasis on punctuation became such a huge part of our second core value, but I like the way it sounds. Work really hard. [End of story.] Play really hard. [No discussion.] That’s just what we do.
Usually that looks like the team coming together for a game of ping pong after a long day or a tough project — but in March, the ping pong paddles were set aside to make time for one thing: March Madness.
And when it comes to March Madness, we go all in.
The competition within the office is fierce. There’s a lot of smack talk, a lot of strategizing, but most importantly, a lot of camaraderie. And if you think our work suffers because of it, think again.
This March, not only did we spend countless hours formulating our brackets (and watching top seeded teams successfully bust them!), and rooting for the underdogs game after game, but we also released our brand new scheduling software (a feat in and of itself), revamped our Who’s Working window to show every single employee within your business on the same map at the same time, and welcomed thousands of new players to our team (as in “employees using TSheets to clock in and out on a daily basis”).
In short, we worked really hard, and we played really hard. And we saw amazing results.
We’ve seen it pay off time and time again — and March Madness is no exception. But if you still aren’t convinced, maybe Forbes can change your mind.
Go ahead, join the madness.
