An Insider's view of Common

What are some social events your company does?

Every Thursday we host the "happiest hour" at 5 PM in our office. This is a great way for teams to mingle and take a break from work while playing chess, checkers, Jenga, etc. with people on other teams over some beer, rosé and mocktails.
