We are really happy that our item was not adversely impacted by the pandemic. However, much like any kind of various other firm that was non-remote prior to COVID-19, we’ve needed to change our interior procedures and also treatments significantly. What has actually additionally considerably transformed is partnership within the group and also interaction. All of an abrupt, we were no more able to just head in the direction of a person’s workdesk if we required something from them and even invest lunch breaks with each other. Instead, our complete interaction procedures changed to remote.

Our society prior to the pandemic

Previously, our group had actually considerably appreciated our in-office routines. For circumstances, we expected our company-wide Friday beverages after job, took part sporting activities obstacles that transformed on a regular monthly basis, took part in the annual Vienna Business Run and also had our very own Bitpanda football group.

For our month-to-month all-hands conferences, employee standing for the firm’s large range of citizenships (we have more than 44 various ones) would certainly prepare a standard morning meal from their residence nation for all others.

Our quarterly group occasions and also our fabulous firm journeys were additionally something that everybody at Bitpanda was constantly anticipating as they were wonderful enjoyable and also added tremendously to a solid group structure. Facing brand-new truth, we needed to react promptly yet experienced some unpredictabilities: How can we maintain our wonderful society at Bitpanda? Should we simply stop all efforts up until we are back to “typical”? Should we experiment with brand-new remote routines?

What helped us?

At Bitpanda, we such as the technique of experimentation, and also given that there was no guidebook on “just how to effectively change your firm society from workplace to remote throughout a worldwide pandemic”, we made a decision to be innovative and also experiment with brand-new points. Read on wherefore we did.

Mental and also physical wellness

A leading concern for us throughout these unmatched times was to guarantee the wellness of our employee. We began with an office study and also, at a later phase, waged a wellness study to recognize the requirements of the groups. Based on the responses we got, we made a decision to advertise numerous efforts.

The functional designs modifications we had actually been supplying in the workplace for a healthy and balanced workplace were changed to on-line 1:1 sessions with our job-related health and wellness expert where she aided enhance everybody’s office setups to high ergonomic requirements.

In enhancement, we provided webinars on corona vaccinations in Austria to guarantee any kind of and also all info regarding vaccinations was additionally provided to non-German talking employee. For in 2015’s psychological health and wellness day, we prepared a details overview on just how to avoid long-lasting stress and anxiety and also recommended some temporary stress and anxiety alleviation methods for in between conferences. In enhancement, from the very start, we provided cost-free confidential appointments with psycho therapists

As in 2015’s Vienna Business Run might not happen, we participated in the B2mission rather, permitting our employee to contend in a month-long running competitors This became the very best method to maintain physical range while being socially linked.

Furthermore, as one of our really own Pandas is a remarkable Yoga trainer, he offered to provide online Yoga courses to all our coworkers and also they were quite possibly gotten. Finally, we provided cost-free myclubs classes to everybody that appreciates exercising from residence while the fitness centers stayed shut.


The emphasize of 2020 was most definitely last Christmas – our remote Bitpanda Xmas celebration! Our 2 hosts, that are Bitpanda employee, obtained examined and also strolled us via the evening from the workplace, while greater than 200 employee signed up with the program from another location.

During the weeks leading up to the celebration, employee had actually currently been participated in the prep work by electing for their firm worth heroes and also took part in an Xmas attire obstacle. During the celebration, our lively hosts organized a club test, deceptions and also a reward drawing for all our employee online.

For all our remote occasions, we worked together with Takeaway Pay to provide Lieferando coupons for everybody to pick and also appreciate their provided supper This is practically like providing throughout an actual Xmas celebration, just much better, due to the fact that you can pick your very own food:D.

The last emphasize was thanks to our Bitpanda DJs that took kip down enjoyable us via a much and also lengthy required evening with each other. What made this experience so significant was that it was a great deal of enjoyable and also DIY organized by employee just. We want to give thanks to all our interior employee that did and also prepared this unforgettable celebration. Oh, and also did we discuss that everybody got a well-known Bitpanda Santa hat to be straightened on the dress-code and also office Christmas presents?

Connecting in office

Since our groups were utilized to substantial quarterly group occasions, we did not desire them to lose out throughout office times. Teams had the ability to make a decision if they wished to join an in person task in conformity with Corona limitations or satisfy from another location (for which we provided a vast array of feasible on-line tasks).

During among these occasions, one group made a decision to play Among Us with each other, which we after that prolonged right into a company-wide occasion. Needless to state, it confirmed extremely prominent with everybody and also individuals played up until late right into the evening, consisting of among our CEOs. We have actually additionally begun to hold our first string occasions in an online globe called Mibo where you can join your coworkers and also have side discussions.

Picture excellent interaction

In order to remain linked on an once a week basis, we additionally introduced our interior image obstacles, which have actually come to be incredibly popular. Every week we recommend a brand-new subject to our employee and also they are asked to upload their image including the subject beneath. The image with one of the most upvotes wins a coupon to sustain a regional service. Some instances consisted of  #ratemysetup (victor aware listed below), #ratemylockdownbuddy (victor aware listed below), #ratemyhomeofficeoutfit, #ratemycurfewactivity and also much more.

Another campaign to remain in touch was the launch of an application calledDonut Donut introductories arbitrarily combine individuals around the firm to satisfy for brief digital coffee breaks. This method, not just brand-new joiners, yet additionally experienced employee that might not have actually fulfilled previously, have the ability to satisfy each various other by coincidence in an extremely enjoyable method. Donut introductories additionally restore a few of the little talk you would normally appreciate while ordering a coffee in the cooking area or when fulfilling a person in the lift at the workplace.

Panda Talks therefore far more

Even extra efforts that commemorated a resurgence in spite of the remote setup were our all-hands conferences online, our onboarding bootcamps, language courses and also our panda talks throughout which employee provide a subject they are specialists in to everybody that is interested.

Finally, every group has actually produced its very own routines, such as open on-line conferences, where everybody functions and also signs up with on their corresponding subjects yet can unmute themselves to ask concerns if required (to appear like operating in the workplace) or everyday stand-ups or regular tea times.

It is additionally crucial to recognize that individuals are battling throughout these times as well as additionally have various other duties beside function. So, if a person chooses to close down their laptop computer and also not invest every cost-free min with coworkers, this is additionally completely great and also can add to a healthy and balanced work-life equilibrium.

New obstacles wait for

All in all, some efforts were extra effective than others. We did not attempt to just copy-paste the efforts we had actually had in location prior to COVID-19 yet uncovered brand-new significant means to link from another location rather.

So what’s following? Well, brand-new obstacles await us! In the meanwhile, we have actually opened up brand-new workplaces in Krakow and also Madrid and also are relocating to brand-new head offices inVienna We are intending to operate in the extent of a crossbreed version with a great equilibrium in between office and also shared workdesks.
