A Favorite Moment at Peer Insight

At Peer Insight there have been so many big and milestone moments so far – being asked to attend a conference in Dublin a week before it started, receiving the job offer via a series of adorable post-it notes on Zoom, and showering our teammates with gratitude for their work anniversaries and birthdays. 

But I think my favorite moments have been the small acts of joy we share together, everyday. Things like celebrating incremental victories in silly ways, receiving coffee at your desk from a generous teammate, and never forgetting our sense of humor make a typical day in the office vibrant, fun, and one-of-a-kind in the best way.
