Two key ingredients needed to sustain an innovative and successful company are employee morale and the ability to focus on the company’s values. This, of course, is easier said than done. It takes a consistent effort from each employee to control the busyness and commotion of any office setting. With its eight years of experience in the healthcare communication field, Voalte has a perfect recipe for balancing work and play, while staying true to its core vision: to create life-changing healthcare communication tools.
As an ambitious 19-year-old intern who has never worked in the “real world,” I found Voalte to be a breath of fresh air. It has been amazing this summer to be surrounded by some of the leaders in the healthcare communication industry, and to witness all of the projects being accomplished to uphold Voalte’s vision. With each passing day, I become a little wiser, I get more acquainted with my coworkers, and I obtain a higher level of insight about how our product has the ability to change the outcomes of thousands of patients each day.
With new and intriguing projects being thrown at me left and right, it was easy to fully immerse myself into the Voalte culture. I can see the value and hard work each individual contributes on a daily basis. One of the most satisfying things to see is the eagerness and collaborative effort displayed throughout the company. Everyone works diligently in their area of expertise, and consistently works to build lasting relationships with each other. Whether it’s a company-wide bowling party, a Hawaiian shirt Friday, or just a get-together after work, there is always a sense of community in the office.
Being part of an energetic environment that shares one common goal and exhibits a die-hard attitude to reach it is truly inspiring. At Voalte, I was constantly engaging with other departments, executive team members, remote employees, and others to get the job done. Whatever it takes. Passion and motivation work closely together here, as colleagues push each other further in the direction the company is aiming for. Each team member keeps Voalte’s vision in mind, which supplies the drive behind every task or assignment from beginning to end.
Within the next few days, my internship will come to an end. The enthusiastic side of me is ready to take my new skills into my second year of college, and eventually, “the real world.” My nostalgic side will miss the dynamic and innovative vibe at Voalte headquarters. Voalte recognizes and understands how to use its vision to serve its customers, its partners, and most importantly, its corporate family.
