OUR CORE VALUES
Life@Work was founded by Fay Kristoff after she left the messaging service Gondola in the wake of its Reconnect Request Fallout.
During her time there as a software engineer, she became aware of the underlying one-on-one emotional and interactional systems that underscored the company culture she had been so attracted to. She also noticed that much of that work was done without oversight or accountability; workers were never explicitly asked to do the work of building community, but their products suffered if they didn’t. Unintended misalignments in intention and impact of various interactions would do far-reaching damage to company ethos. A subset of the workers had to put in the same energy every day to calibrate interactions and work to intentionally cultivate a productive atmosphere.
Fay realized there was a need for a more permanent solution to cultivate company culture with the power of intentional, emotional engineering. She quit Gondola and founded Life@Work, bringing together a team of experts on neural interfacing chemistry, object-oriented ontology, emotional management, artificial intelligence and workplace sociology.
A Message from our CEO
I am extremely lucky, because at Life@Work I get to work with some amazing people, who really care about their work. I’m talking in-the-office-until-midnight, 996, send-emails-with-50-exclamation-points care about their work. Sometimes I have to pinch myself to convince myself I’m not dreaming!
My team has taught me that the best products are built by teams where every individual cares about what they’re building. They all have an emotional connection to PEP (trust me, I’ve seen their daily PEP reports!) – and that shows in our final work.
PEP was built with care and with attention. And not just any care and attention, but the care and attention of these amazingly bright, talented, emotionally intelligent, nurturing leaders. I can’t thank them enough for all the work they’ve put in day after day!
To our customers – thank you!
To my wonderful co-workers – thank you!
To you reading this – thank you!
Without you all, my hope for a more intentionally emotional workplace would never have become a reality. <3
