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.

Head of Agency Distribution

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

I manage a hybrid team of traditional "creatives" and business strategists. I work hard to foster a spirit of creativity by asking my teammates to consider a variety of ways to solve every problem we encounter. Then, I create opportunities for them to be creative in ways that align with their superpowers.

Ariana

VP of Brand & Creative

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.
