At LiveIntent, our employees have a wide range of interests and passions. One of the ways we highlight our talented employees is through LiveInterests. In this cross-office initiative, LiveIntenters have the opportunity to host a company-wide session to share more information about their hobby or passion. Each session showcases the host, how they got into their particular hobby or passion, and a Q&A portion. Some of the sessions vary with a live demo or an informational presentation.
In the first half of 2022, we’ve hosted three LiveInterests sessions. Read on to learn more.
Michael Marcos, director, engineering, hosted a fascinating session where he shared how he got into woodworking. Michael gave a live tour of his home woodworking shop, showcased previous projects and creations, and gave recommendations for beginners on entry-level tools. Follow Michael’s journey of creating a cutting board from start to finish in this video.
Crocheting and Knitting
In this session, Kayla Alarcon, associate graphic designer, and Anine Borger, data scientist, shared how they started crocheting and knitting, respectively. They not only showcased their previous creations but also provided a live tutorial demo for beginner-level stitches and knots. Attendees were welcome to watch and practice along with the hosts!
Living a Greener Life
In April, in honor of Earth Month, Gracie Giffune, publisher yield specialist, and Mary Mun, people and culture initiatives specialist, hosted a LiveInterests session about living a greener and more eco-conscious lifestyle. Attendees learned key terminology, the “5 Rs” to waste disposal, the science behind composting and how to begin composting, and how to easily implement sustainability into everyday practice. This LiveInterests session sparked the creation of our #green-living Slack channel, where LiveIntenters have continued to engage in conversations about sustainability and shared their eco-conscious recommendations.
LiveInterests has showcased the various passions and interests our employees have. This initiative has been an educational and informative way to learn more about those at the company. It has allowed employees to take on new hobbies after learning about the ones highlighted through LiveInterests.
We look forward to sharing more of our employees’ interests as the year goes on!
