Whereoware at Home

Amid the chaos and uncertainty these days in response to COVID-19, the Whereoware team is actively navigating our client relationships from our very own cozy corners of the country—from the mid-Atlantic to the Midwest, New England to the deep South. We’re doing our part and practicing social distancing, but that doesn’t mean we can’t stay a tight-knit team.

From celebrating pajama day every day, to taking a few more snack breaks than usual (okay, a lot more), being comfy at home won’t interrupt our teamwork or our hustle.

As we get used to our new work spaces, we’ve had the pleasure of welcoming some new types of “co-workers” to our team—some enjoy laying on our warm keyboards, while others like to stop and bark at the squirrels in the backyard. Other little ones are all about taking breaks for dance parties and some require the occasional diaper change. Sure, they can be a little unruly at times, but they keep us smiling and on our toes.
