Fun and laughter are essential to Convergint Technologies company culture, as one of its founding Values & Beliefs. Forbes featured Convergint in its article “Make Fun Part of Your Mission: Lessons from a Billion Dollar Company,” which credits this fundamental belief to be part of the root of Convergint’s year-over-year success.
Although unconventional, co-founders Greg Lernihan and Dan Moceri believed that fun has helped Convergint achieve nearly two decades of double-digit growth and surpass $1 billion in sales in 2018.
Fun and laughter even extend beyond the workplace for colleagues. Each year, Convergint gives its colleagues a “Fun & Laughter Day,” which includes a day off from work and $100 from Convergint with only one requirement: it must be used for fun and laughter.
“At Convergint, our last Value & Belief is all about having fun,” said Convergint Co-Found Dan Moceri. “You are going to work hard, so make sure you enjoy the work you do….In the end, that’s what really counts: that your work is something that fulfills and excites you, as much as it provides for you.” The founding 10 Values & Beliefs drive the positive culture and are what truly makes Convergint different.
