As we’ve mentioned before, we take culture seriously at Criteo. And while yoga, snacks, and swag are fantastic, we think it’s just as important to incorporate community service into our company values. That’s why we host a “GO! Day” each quarter where our employees are encouraged to step back from their desks and come together for a worthy cause.
In the past, we’ve filled backpacks for students with Cradles to Crayons, made sandwiches for those in need at Bowery Mission, and set up an outdoor garden to introduce students to urban farming with GrowNYC. We recently hosted a few GO! Days in New York City and Boston.
Our New York City GO! Day took a playful spin on “Game of Thrones.” Dubbed “Game of Tiles,” employees worked in teams — Starks, Lannisters, Baratheons, Martells, Targaryens, and Tyrells — and spent the afternoon creating tiled artwork with the help of Artware for Goodto benefit Gilda’s Club.
Gilda’s Club provides free resources and support for people of all ages who face a cancer diagnosis, ensuring that no one impacted by the disease will go through it alone. Our team’s art tiles will be displayed in the Children’s & Teen’s support group rooms to inspire their members with messages of laughter, love, and community.
Criteo employees focused on community, support, and family when creating their tiles, and we ended up with six unique pieces of art. Congratulations to the winners, The Lannisters, and runners-up, the Starks.
We also hosted two GO! Days in Boston. The first was a Celebrity Circuit Challenge, a circuit-training workout hosted by EverybodyFights® to benefit Horizons for Homeless Children.
For the second, our team cleaned a parcel near Wharf District Park in partnership with the Rose Kennedy Greenway Conservancy.
GO! Days are great ways to bond and work together while giving back to our communities. We can’t wait to participate in many more!
