We’re coming to the end of National Work Life Week (7 — 11 October) — a chance for “both employers and employees to focus on wellbeing at work and work life balance”.

In this post, members of the CoinCorner team share their thoughts on what makes CoinCorner a positive place to work in terms of wellbeing and work life balance.

Why do you enjoy working at CoinCorner?

I could talk about this all day, but the two main reasons are:

1) I love the industry, but more importantly, 2) I love the CoinCorner team — we’re more like family than colleagues. ♥️

What makes CoinCorner different from other companies you’ve worked at?

I actually look forward to Monday!

Why do you like working at CoinCorner?

It’s a very exciting, upbeat atmosphere which means I haven’t had a single morning when I’ve dreaded coming to work.

Management encourage the “work hard, play hard” lifestyle that drives me to work harder, for the company and myself.

What makes CoinCorner different from other companies you’ve worked at?

Compared to other companies I’ve worked at, CoinCorner’s management team has actively encouraged me to get involved and taken time to teach me about the business itself, including how it operates and is managed. I’ve become interested in business now and it’s been a really great surprise to me as it wasn’t something that was on my radar when I was younger.

Why do you enjoy working at CoinCorner?

I love the work that I do and the fact that it varies from day to day. It’s never the same old situation.

What makes CoinCorner different from other companies you’ve worked at?

CoinCorner is the only company I’ve worked at that actually motivates you and gives you an incentive for the company to do well. You aren’t just another cog in the machine at CoinCorner. You are CoinCorner.

Our CEO, Danny, is constantly motivating the troops to go and learn about the industry, whether it be Bitcoin or development in general, in their own time. I’ve left the office on multiple occasions feeling motivated to carry on educating myself at home because of his pep talks.

What makes CoinCorner different from other companies you’ve worked at?

Working at CoinCorner is different to many companies as it’s a fast-paced, dynamic startup which means that everyday is a new and different day.

This allows you to grow as an individual as you can take part in different departments within the company and there is focus on learning new technologies (Bitcoin), then sharing new knowledge with each other.

Compared to many other companies where you’re given one job and that’s your job for many years to come with no ability to expand your skill set, I’d say CoinCorner has a good focus on individual wellbeing, is especially pro-exercise (great for physical and mental wellbeing), and encourages a healthy work life balance with frequent social activities.

Why do you enjoy working at CoinCorner?

I enjoy having no boundaries — Our company culture, team and the industry we operate in each allow us to invent our own future.

We’ve also worked hard to create a culture and environment that supports thinking outside of the box. This gives our team the freedom to come up with and share new ideas/thoughts on how the business could be improved.
