Spigot, Inc. Mobile Team Wheel of Fortune Hosted by Gameshow Gauntlet!

Spigot, Inc. is on week 11 of social distancing – and still keeping up on the virtual happy hours! Last Friday, Spigot, Inc.’s Mobile team decided to do a Pre-Memorial Day Happy Hour and play Wheel of Fortune! The show was hosted by Gameshow Gauntlet (Highly recommend) and it was a blast! Everyone hopped on Zoom at 3pm, made a drink, grabbed a few teammates and got to participate in the fun. Cory – the creator of Gameshow Gauntlet develops all the games himself and pre Covid would do them at bars, but they work perfectly virtually as well! Spigot, Inc. and our sister companies have enjoyed several virtual happy hour games.

Spigot, Inc. is unsure when we will be able to work all together again in the office – so continuing to put on “virtual” team building events is important. We are STILL hiring and have several positions open on our Linkedin. Spigot, Inc. would love to hear from you! Send your resume to careers@spigot.com for review!

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 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!
