Weekly Goals Showdown
Setting goals is what guides our team toward success week after week and has become a huge part of our culture. Every Monday, our team sets 3 goals for the week, and on Fridays during our Goals Showdown the department with the most successful week wins $100 to spend on a team event, a new resource or anything else they’d like!
Staying Healthy & Happy
Happy & healthy is the way we like it – and not just because staying active helps stimulate productivity. We were awarded as a finalist for San Diego’s Healthiest Companies because we are thrilled to support and provide opportunities that benefit the health and well being of our team – mind, body and soul. Some of the things we do are:
- Wellness Wednesdays
- Weekly smoothie bar
- Fitness competitions
- Healthy catered lunches and snacks
- Yoga in the office
- Group spin classes
- Stand up workstations
- Group intramural teams
Everyone Is A Leader At PDM
With a culture of leadership and no real management hierarchy or middle management we want all of our team members to be leaders.
To put a focus on this development we launched a quarterly leadership program that team members of all tenures rotate through. These classes use proven growth principles modeled after elite training programs of Ken Blanchard, Xerox Corp and the Entrepreneur Organization (EO). A a result of this focus our team grows and improves and our clients reap the rewards.
There Is Such Thing As a Free Lunch…
Catered Food Daily
Health is something very important to us, and a big part of that is eating well. Being a Finalist for San Diego Business Journal’s Healthiest Company was a great honor and something we are very proud of.
To keep our team healthy and continue to build the bonds and friendship between team mates we cater almost every lunch so that team members can eat healthy and enjoy lunch together.
We Don’t Take Ourselves Too Seriously
Work & Play
What’s work without a little fun? If you ask us, there’s no better way to stay energized than breaking up our workload with a game of pong.
But we aren’t biased. We’ve also got a basketball hoop in the middle of our office, arcade games, a put-put green and more.
We Recognize Hard Work
Power Player of the Month
One Power Player is named each month – someone picked anonymously by the team who stood out for supporting their team members, going above and beyond, getting a major win, etc. In other words, they killed it!
