An Insider's view of Clearcover

How does your team reward individual success?

We celebrate "wins" on Fridays with the entire company where we celebrate the success of the week with the rest of the organization, it is a fun and casual way to be recognized by peers. However, I also find a moment to individually recognize my team during our weekly touch bases for something specific that they accomplished.

What makes someone successful on your team?

People who are successful on the Customer Experience team communicate with empathy, love solving problems for our customers, continually look for ways to work smarter, and thrive in the face of challenge.
