What is Culture? Season 2 – Episode #12: Employee Appreciation

Podcast - What is Culture? Season 2

This special episode features more than a dozen Tangoe employees from our Indianapolis office and was recorded during Power Week (August 19-23), which was five consecutive days of activities and events that celebrate Tangoe’s four core values: integrity, excellence, selflessness, and courage. It was also a week chock-full of activities and events that exemplify employee appreciation.

Indianapolis Culture Committee at TangoeThis episode begins with a clip from Tangoe’s August Town Hall, as our CEO Bob Irwin, addresses the world, from our Indy office, via Instagram Live. It is followed by a recorded meeting with 14 members of the culture committee in Indianapolis. They all answer these three of my questions: (1) What is your name, what is your current position, and what do you like about your job? (2) What do you enjoy most about being a member of the Culture Committee? (3) What do you hope all Indianapolis employees will take away at the end of Power Week?

Here are the names and positions of the employees you will meet in this episode: Richard Crowe, Transition Coordinator; Dixie Rhoades, Expense Management Analyst; Jasin Thomason, Visual Brand Designer; Jenny Montgomery, Product Owner; Kristin Dehring, Service Delivery Manager; Shawn Plew, Engineering Manager; Emma Hosei, Account Support Manger; Tim Esteb, Service Delivery Manger; Anna Evans, Team Manager; Nathan Deinlein, Logistics Lead; Chrissy Pfeiffer, Business Analyst; Sam Souders, Logistics Associate; Brad Shaffer, Account Support Manger; and Josh Garrett, Chief Strategy Officer. NOTE: There were two members of the Culture Committee who were not able to attend the meeting that was recorded: Christi Vawter, Content & Public Relations and Jalynne Foley, Finance Manager.

It’s my pleasure to put a spotlight on the Culture Committee at our Indianapolis location, during Power Week, in this very special episode of What is Culture? Listen below, or find us anywhere where you enjoy your podcasts.
