Impressed by the well-known Liz & Mollie, authors of “No Onerous Emotions. The Secret Energy Of Embracing Feelings At Work”, we determined to offer a bit extra steerage on the inofficial stuff that’s good to know from the very first day:
- Issues which Runtastics, who’ve labored right here for some time, take without any consideration
- Issues that are useful however no one thinks about really telling you

Crowdsourcing throughout our Days of New Concepts
Virtually each quarter, we dedicate two days to innovation. Nicely, that’s not true, as a result of we dedicate our day by day work to innovation (it’s one in every of our core values in any case). Nonetheless, throughout our Days of New Concepts – or DONI, as we lovingly name them – we get collectively and do nothing however innovate. Ideally on matters that aren’t a part of our day by day enterprise, with folks with whom we don’t work regularly.
So, some time again a various group of Runtastics teamed as much as create an “It’s Okay Listing” which we may show in our workplaces and our on-line communication platforms. Crew members who had just lately joined in addition to long-term colleagues, a wide range of nationalities, skilled experience in addition to genders collected a large number of issues that we do, however may very well not pay attention to.
What Is Truly Okay?
After hours of brainstorming and discussing, we realized what number of casual rituals we even have, what number of unwritten guidelines we really apply each day, and what number of habits are completely effective at Runtastic, but is probably not someplace else.
What was notably enjoyable for us was to see what number of completely different matters arose throughout the discussions: from feeling okay about making use of our flexi-time (and leaving work at 03:00pm with out feeling responsible), about making errors, or about not being sporty (we are able to’t stress sufficient that you wouldn’t have to be sporty to work at a sports activities firm).
We grouped our findings into the 5 classes: self-care, collaboration, time administration, communication and (residence) workplace life, and are actually proud of what we got here up.
Why This Makes Sense For Your Firm Too
So, when scanning by means of this checklist, needless to say it’s actually not common, however moderately particular to Runtastic. Nonetheless, this shall not preserve you from making an attempt it out at your work, as you likely even have some rituals that you could be not even have been conscious of.
Other than the “It’s Okay” Listing being a useful information in your colleagues, additionally it is an effective way to replicate on what is definitely wonderful at your office. And that is at all times a great factor to do!
