Alpine Air and Agile Minds: HappyPorch's Retreat in the Austrian Mountains
In November, the HappyPorch team packed our woolly hats and headed to the Austrian Alps for our second meetup of 2023. Our destination was Brixen im Thale - a ski resort town nestled away in the snowy mountains. The peace and quiet of the off-season made a lovely backdrop for our discussions and quality time together.
Navigating Sustainability: HappyPorch's 2022 Carbon Footprint Report
As part of our climate commitment, we are happy to unveil our 2022 Carbon Footprint Report. For several years, HappyPorch has monitored carbon emissions,seeking the most accurate tracking methodologies, assumption figures, and data collection practices.
For the first meetup of 2023, the HappyPorch team headed to the picturesque town of Buxton, England. Surrounded by the beautiful Peak District National Park, from forests, to farmland, to rocky hillsides - that really set the tone for the week’s discussions on how we can continue to grow our positive impact and preserve the natural scenery around us.
Diversity & Equality at HappyPorch in 2023
At HappyPorch, we value diversity and we are always working to create a more equal, diverse and open workplace. It is the time of the year when we regularly assess diversity and equality within our Team and compare to previous years so we can identify our improvement.
Meetup in Prague
For the second time in 2022, we had the privilege of spending another week together as a team, this time in Černý Vůl - a misty village just a little outside the beautiful city of Prague. After the success of the Seaton Carew meetup, it was safe to say we were all very excited to see everyone in person again. Nestled amongst trees, the location provided a lovely space to spark environmental discussions, have epic board game sessions and simply gather around a home cooked meal.
Together once again
Finally it was time to see each other in person for the first time since 2019. Before Covid hit, we used to have a meetup twice a year, and during the pandemic our team changed a lot, so roughly half the team have never seen each other in person. We were therefore very excited to finally spend some time together and fortunately, almost everyone was able to make it. We chose Seaton Carew in the UK and we were not disappointed!
