Life at Lendi: Working and thriving from home during Covid-19

As with the rest of the world, the key question we have had to ask ourselves was, 'how do you maintain culture and connection from your lounge room, bedroom, office and kitchen table?' The answer seems to be that you do it with high levels of intention and a willingness to see the story within each individual situation.

Life at Lendi is more exciting than ever. It has been incredibly inspiring to see how our teams have stepped up to not only create a new normal but to also flourish within it. We have seen people from different functions and roles come together, work together and tackle this uncertain time together.

Without the physical connection and space, we know how important it is to over communicate and create an environment where people can share and bring their unique experience and challenges to light. One of our values “Great Minds Don’t Need To Think Alike” is all about collaboration and teamwork, which is at the core of our success as a business, for employees, customers and stakeholders alike.

We are extremely proud of our leadership team across all levels and functions and thankful for their guidance. We are hearing more from our Executive team through many live streaming forums with regular internal and external updates. This has kept everyone connected and informed.

How we’re staying connected

We have invested in cultural initiatives to support our people through this change and some very successful projects have been:

  • Our very own Lendi Live radio show! We have interviewed different individuals within Lendi, explored their homes, met their pets and shared working from home tips and tricks!
  • The newly established ‘Working From Home’ culture team have hit the ground running rolling out a range of competitions (so far we have had Lendi's got talent, Battle of the workstations, Lendi Masterchef and Quarantine beards!). Once again, it has been great to see everyone getting involved
  • During this time, it's vital for each and every one of us to check in with our own and our co-workers’ mental health and wellbeing. Our Monday Mindfulness Newsletter is sent out each week and is tailored to topics such as burn-out, managing energy levels, setting boundaries and finding ways to connect with those around us, during these unusual times
  • Our private Facebook group has been a hub of connection and support. We have seen people sharing their working from home experiences, asking the team to vote on the name of their new dog and sharing netflix recommendations. We’ve learnt our team really like true crime podcasts!

Adjusting to this transition is not an organic process. It requires hard work and a willingness to support those around us. Our new normal is going to look very different and we are confident the Lendi family will get through whatever is thrown at us!
