“Happy Hour is the Best Hour”

Mark your calendar! Our last virtual happy hour was a success and people want more. For that reason, you received $200 MXN in the last past paycheck. We would like for you to use this money to buy yourself a drink, meal, snack of your choice, or even holiday props, so you can share it with us at the next virtual happy hour. Pets and children are welcome to join in too…the more the merrier!

If you missed the last one, here’s your chance to join us and learn a bit more about other team members. Our next happy hour is on Friday, January 29, 2021.

We look forward to virtually hanging out with you! Expect an invitation from Natalia with more details.

“Gotitas del Saber”

What if you could tell your co-workers what you really think of them? At the world’s most successful hedge fund, everyone is rated and ranked constantly in front of everyone. They’ve figured out how to embrace negative feedback, and they swear it’s essential to their success. Organizational psychologist, Adam Grant, shows how you can learn to take criticism well, and get better at dishing it out. 

Listen to Adam Grant’s Worklife TED podcast episode on How to Love Criticism
