What SPINS Offers

When we began working remotely a year ago due to COVID, we committed to keeping our healthy and active SPINS culture. This remained a high priority for us as we grew our employee population by nearly 20% while we worked remotely. We listen to employee feedback as we plan when and how we will return to the office in the future. For now, we can’t have some of our favorite in-office perks (plenty of snacks, onsite gym, and bike storage), we’ve continued to find ways to stay true to SPINS:

  • Virtual yoga, HIIT, and Kinstretch classes each week
  • Each employee is allotted paid time to use to volunteer with an organization of their choice and charitable donations are matched.
  • Stay connected with other SPINS employees for a weekly PELOTON ride together
  • CEO Connect, a monthly informal small group Q&A session with our top leader  
  • Direct – We communicate with clarity, honesty and respect in all situations and embrace opportunities to provide solution-oriented feedback.
  • Determined – We are committed to overcoming all obstacles to achieve results. We adapt to change, seek opportunities to learn and rapidly translate that learning into action.
  • Passionate – We go above and beyond to help our partners achieve their goals. We challenge assumptions and are comfortable forging new paths.
  • Collaborative – We leave our egos at the door, believing that working together we will produce an outcome that’s greater than each individual contribution.
