An Insider's view of Lifion by ADP

What are some social events your company does?

There are lots of events constantly going on at Lifion! From meetups to tech talks to our weekly Thursday happy hours, there's a good mix of work and play. We also do outings: in my one year of working here we’ve done laser tag, Barcade, happy hour on a boat, the vessel, a picnic in central park, escape the room, VR world, and more.

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

The People Ops Team is in full swing for FY19 Performance Reviews. It's an exciting time for the business, but requires a lot of backend work & support for our associates. We're drafting communications and timelines for management & associates, and creating the right process to gather ratings and self-assessments for a great associate experience.

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

Creativity is best fueled by collaboration, and has two simple ingredients: First, you hire passionate & talented people, people who care about users and who want to solve meaningful complex problems. Then, you support a culture of openness, with every designer constantly sharing their best ideas across the whole org. That's how creativity thrives!
