It’s the final day of May. As we enter the summer season, things are heating up at our website agency. Take a moment to read up on our latest company news. We have exciting tidbits to share.

WebDevStudios Culture Day

Just last week, WebDevStudios (WDS) closed the doors of our virtual offices to hold our first ever Culture Day. In lieu of a company retreat, this event was designed to build internal opportunities for bonding, networking, and learning.

The day included team introductions and a “State of WDS” presentation from CEO, Brad Williams, and COO, Lisa Sabin-Wilson. They covered structural and process changes as well as promotions.

WDS Culture Day featured various learning opportunities, open discussions, and even a murder mystery game during lunch break. You can see the happy faces of some of those who participated in the game below.

This is a screen grab of a grid of the participants' faces from the murder mystery game that took place during WebDevStudios' Culture Day. Words on this screen grab say, "The Escape Game," and "Unlocked for Teams."
