Week 3 of Quarantine: Spigot, Inc. Employees Are Getting Creative

If you’ve been following our blog – you have seen that Spigot, Inc. has been in quarantine for 3 weeks now, and that they’ve found plenty of things to keep themselves (and their kids, “new coworkers.”) busy. Quarantine has been a good way to unwind from the chaos of everyday life, but have we gone crazy yet?! Some say that they are still good – practicing a healthier lifestyle, spending more time eating dinners with family and catching up on all the shows they’ve ever wanted to watch on Netflix (and Tiger King), but others are ready for this to be over! Thankfully in the business we are in – we are in the position to make MORE money because people are at home, scrolling through the internet and clicking on ads. Not only that – Spigot, Inc. is used to working remotely with their international offices, and sister companies. We have also found that we are just as productive (if not more) while working from home, so we are set from that perspective!

Outside of our 8 hour work from home workday, Spigot, Inc. employees have gotten creative (like always). As seen above some are literally making lemonade out of lemons, tons of fresh home-made meals, buying giant blow up slides, throwing it back and playing DDR, spending quality time with their animals, putting together 1000 piece puzzles, “self-isolating” out on the ocean on their boats and participating in work-out challenges.

It’s never a dull moment inside or outside the Spigot, Inc. office! Our employees are what makes coming to work everyday so much fun – and we are still enjoying working together on our Zoom calls (and happy hours)! If you think this is the type of work culture you are yearning for – Spigot, Inc. is STILL hiring! We have a bunch of open positions on our Linkedin and Website – feel free to apply OR send your resume to careers@spigot.com for review! Check out all of our adventures on the Spigot Inc blog.

Bored at Home? Here is what Spigot, Inc. Employees are Doing With Their New “Co-workers” to Stay Busy During Quarantine!

It’s been just a little over two weeks since Spigot, Inc. closed their office and asked employees to work from home due to Covid-19. All public schools in Florida are closed, so many people are not only working from home, but their kids are home too! Thankfully we are located in sunny Fort Myers, FL, so we still have the option to go outside. Spigot, Inc. employees have definitely gotten creative this week. Some employees “Co-workers” are eating all their food, messing up their work spaces, talking WAY too loud and just acting crazy in general.  As seen above, some employees new “coworkers” are creating things and some are destroying them (haha!). A handful of our new “co-workers” are learning to bake and make pizzas. Some have also taken the opportunity to spend extra time outdoors (which we recommend), by the pool, riding bikes, rollerblading and spending time “social distancing” on their boats. Building giant box forts, e-learning at home and playing school are also high on the list!

During this crazy time, Spigot, Inc. employees are super fortunate to still have the opportunity to work and stay at home with their kids AND stay connected with one another daily via Slack, Zoom & social media. Looking for a new position? We’re still actively hiring!  Send your resume to careers@spigot.com for review! Check out all of our adventures on the Spigot Inc blog.

Spigot, Inc. & Sister Company, Eightpoint Technologies, Are in the BEST Locations for Working From Home

Collaboration is a huge key to success in our organization so working from home the past few weeks has been stressful for some Spigot, Inc. employees – BUT we’re all making the best of it.  Spigot, Inc. and Eightpoint Technologies are in prime tropical locations, so working outdoors on our patios is a really fun change of pace for some! As you can see in the cover photo, an employee from our sister company even set up a hammock! Many of us have the opportunity to work by the pool, in the backyard or even by the ocean. As stressful as this time is, Spigot, Inc. is extremely fortunate to have the ability to work from their home in this beautiful weather AND our business is all online. This means we are still able to conduct business AND collaborate over Zoom & Slack.

If you follow our blog – you know Spigot, Inc. (and Eightpoint) both have a ton of games in their offices for breaks and fortunately some Spigot, Inc. employees also have those at home! Social distancing is difficult – and Spigot, Inc. is a tight knit company, so we definitely miss one another, but it seems like everyone agrees – it has been great to spend time with family (and pets, and small assistants),  cook at home and just relax.

For anyone that is SUPER bored at home, Spigot, Inc. will be posted fun/unique things to do while at home, as well as what our employees are doing in the upcoming weeks! We’re not sure when our offices will be open again, as we want to do our part to help stop the spread of this virus – BUT we are still hiring, and will keep everyone posted!

Spigot, Inc. & Sister Company Employees are ALL Working From Home – Do We Like it or Hate it?!

Due to the Coronavirus Spigot, Inc. and our sister companies decided starting yesterday that the smartest approach would be to close our offices and have all employees work from home in “self isolation.” In general, Spigot, Inc. employees spend a great deal of time with one another in and outside of work – and working on each other’s computers collaborating, so we thought it would be best to shut down the offices. NO – we aren’t crazy, but we definitely don’t want to contribute to the medical facilities being overrun by sick patients like stated in this article and graph. Florida is slowly closing down all their public places, as of right now public school, bars and nightclubs are all on a mandatory close – so Spigot, Inc. employees staying home as much as possible is 70 less people to spread the virus!

The real question though is – do we like it or hate it?! Sure, working from home is nice – and I don’t think any of us have reached talking to a volley ball status yet BUT the consensus seems to be – we’d rather be in the office! When Spigot, Inc. employees were notified of the closure there were tons of complaints of not being able to collaborate and general boredom. Some Spigot, Inc. employees, however, have enjoyed their time home with their pets and swimming pools – as seen in the photos!

Spigot, Inc. employees are extremely fortunate to work for a company that is internet based and fully functional remotely. We are also fortunate that every enjoys coming into the office so much they were disappointed we were closing! If you want to work for a company where the employees are happy and values their employees health/well-being you’ve come to the right place! Send your resume to careers@spigot.com for review!

Spigot, Inc. Wishes Megan Well!

Spigot, Inc. has an extremely unique culture in many different aspects – it’s part of our success and the main reason for our employee happiness and low turn-over. Hard work, dedication and risk taking really go along way here. One of our employees, Megan Wells is starting a new chapter of her life – and we all got to wish her well today! It is definitely a really cool story and a great example of the culture and mindset here at Spigot, Inc. so we thought we’d share!

Megan’s career at Spigot started when she was brought on as our admin to help with the day to day shenanigans. She graduated early from FGCU with an economics degree and had a desire to help out on the finance team. Megan took the initiative and sought a role on the finance team. Initially she lent a helping hand on some projects that the finance team had been working on and quickly proved her exemplary attention to detail and drive to learn (all while maintaining her other full time admin position).  In just 2 months Megan created a role for herself that didn’t even exist yet! In a very short time, she gained enough experience in the financial analyst realm to follow her dream of living in California and seek opportunities there. Her drive, passion, and fearless risk taking allotted her the opportunity to not only move to the team in which she desired, but help take her career to the next level.

We will miss Megan very much, but no matter what we know she is going to do great things!

If you want to be a part of a culture that really values their employees, has a ton of room for upward mobility and is just overall fun – Spigot, Inc. would love to talk to you!
