Connected Introduces: Work From Anywhere
February 4, 2022
Estimated reading time: 5 minutes
We believe that doing your best work means having the flexibility in choosing how and when you do it; whether that means coming to the office one day, working at home the next, and the South of France the following week.
At Connected you can.

Better Product Builders, Wherever We Are
At Connected, we have a culture of continuous learning; always in pursuit of perfecting our craft. That means challenging ourselves with new technologies, practices, and even working arrangements to keep getting better. As we wrote elsewhere about going remote-first, these new working arrangements challenge us to be “more thoughtful, more empathetic, and more strategic… this kind of ‘process expertise’ falls squarely in our wheelhouse and will only make us better.”
The more adept we become at juggling different teams, schedules, and locations, the better we will be able to manage our clients’ projects and deliver true product impact.

How Does It Work?
Starting in 2022, Connectors will be able to work from anywhere in Canada for as long as they like and anywhere in the world for up to 30-days in a given calendar year. And this isn’t just for our managers, directors, or senior executives; but ANYONE who has been with Connected for at least three months, regardless of position.
Needless to say, client confidentiality remains paramount, and all Connectors will be expected to uphold our confidentiality policy and procedures wherever they are. Lucky for us, our high-security servers and meticulous confidentiality policies put us in a great position to make that happen.
So what’s the catch? Well, when we say Anywhere, there are a few minimum standards, including internet connection speed and security. And, in an effort to keep the safety of Connectors, our Partners and our Engagements in the forefront, all proposed remote locations are subject to approval.
The Big Picture
Work From Anywhere is just the latest in a series of perks and benefits we’re committed to providing our team members here at Connected. Other recent additions include a Work-From-Home Credit, Well-Being Afternoons, and RRSP Matching. The goal is to drive greater team satisfaction, engagement, and growth and we’re leaving nothing off the table.
To do their best work, people need freedom, autonomy, and trust. And what better way to do that than by letting them work wherever and however they want.
Welcome, to Work From Anywhere.

Thoughtworker Spotlight: Chris Russo
Endless, boundless, limitless; words to describe Chris Russo’s creativity. As our Content Marketing Manager, he proves every single day that the pen is mightier than the sword. He has inspired so many Thoughtworkers to share their voice and perspectives through our content, that we even created a secret-not-so-secret society for everyone he’s collaborated with known as the 4P (you’ll have to join the team to find out what it stands for!). Besides being a very avid reader, Chris enjoys spending time with his two boys and partner going on hikes, exploring new towns, and cooking up a storm in their kitchen trying new culinary styles.

Global Day of Coderetreat Toronto 2022
Earlier this month, we hosted Global Day of Coderetreat (GDCR) at our Toronto office. After a three-year hiatus, we wanted to re-awaken some of the community enthusiasm when we hosted the event for the first time back in 2019. This year we planned for a larger event which turned out to be a really good thing as we nearly doubled our attendance. And in case you were wodering, this is how we did it.
