Employee Appreciation Day

It’s Employee Appreciation Day so we’d like to take this opportunity to humblebrag about how amazing #teamswell is. Simply saying that we have a “cool company culture” would be an understatement. Our team is epic all the way through — from design, production and operations to marketing, sales and accounting. We are lucky enough to work at a place where everyone is passionate about what they do, plus we genuinely like each other. Between gchats, book club, a fitness challenge in February, and a shared spirit for pizza, we’re all tight and that means everything in the workplace.

Want to get to know us better? Where there’s a will, there’s a way. We recently started posting a Snapchat series called “Inside the Bottle,” on which we host a Q&A with various members of #teamswell. Every week we’ll chat with a different staff member to get to know a little bit more about them and their role within the company. Add us on Snapchat and follow us on Twitter to get updates on new episodes and other happenings around the office.

Clearly, we’ve got great people and we’re proud of it. But what else does S’well have to offer? Try perks like Bagel Mondays, an open office space with a rooftop, Equinox memberships, volunteer opportunities, an annual team day (last summer we sailed around the island of Manhattan), Friday team lunches and a raging happy hour.  Better yet, we have the pleasure of creating and selling a beautiful and bad @$$ product that our customers truly love. Plus we’re helping the environment along the way. It doesn’t get much better than that.

Think you might be a good fit for #teamswell? Good news: we’re hiring! Check out our open positions here.

The S’well Team & City Harvest

Team S’well had the amazing opportunity to participate in two volunteer food rescues with City Harvest right in our backyard at the Union Square Green Market.

City Harvest discovered 30 years ago that up to 40% of the food produced in the United States goes to waste. They began the food rescue process where they safely recover the surplus of food from restaurants, grocers, bakeries, farmers markets, corporate cafeterias, manufacturers and farms, and distribute it to people in need. We met up with the City Harvest team to help the food rescue process. The team was excited to spend time bonding and doing something good together.

We’re so proud to say that in our two trips we collected 155 bags of produce (5,950 lbs) and 30 bags of bread (410 lbs) coming out to a total of 6,360 lbs of food to be delivered within their network of soup kitchens, food pantries and community food programs which help New Yorkers facing hunger.
