The Silverline World Tour has become an instrumental way of bringing our global remote workforce together, gathering regional Silverliners in nearby major cities to meet in person and team up to serve their local communities. After the success of our first three Silverline World Tour stops in Orlando, Toronto, and India, the festivities continued in Cincinnati and New York City.
“The Cincinnati World Tour was a great opportunity to connect many Midwest/regional Silverliners,” said JP Owens, Director, Managing Director, Banking and Lending. “For many, this was the first time meeting in person. It was also special to see how large our Silverline team in the Midwest has grown. Since 2019, Cincinnati and the larger Midwest region has become one of the largest geographical groupings of Silverline employees across the U.S.”
As part of our Silverline Cares initiative, each stop on the World Tour involves an element of community service to help build bonds among team members. In Cincinnati, Silverliners masked up and volunteered at Ronald McDonald House, an organization that provides a home for critically ill children and their families while they get their life-saving medical care. Ronald McDonald House helps with the financial and emotional burdens of caregivers by taking care of important practical needs, allowing parents to focus entirely on caring for their children.
The day wrapped up at Pins Mechanical Company, where we embraced our playful sides with games of duckpin bowling, pinball, foosball, and ping pong. “It is so important to find ways to connect with colleagues these days, as well as find ways to give back to the local community,” said Owens. “The Cincinnati World Tour was a great success and I can’t wait to get our local team together more often in 2023!”
The New York City stop on the Silverline World Tour kicked off at our headquarters in Union Square, and with most of our workforce working remotely, it gave some of the newer Silverliners the opportunity to see the home office for the first time.
We assembled activity kits for Project Sunshine, an organization that partners with medical facilities across the United States to meet the psychosocial and developmental needs of pediatric patients. (Silverline has an established relationship with Project Sunshine, which you can learn more about here.) Project Sunshine’s programming supports children’s critical needs by providing opportunities for play and authentic engagement in their medical environment, and the activity kits we put together will provide therapeutic value and aid in the physical and emotional healing of pediatric patients.
“Being new to Silverline, the timing of the NYC World Tour couldn’t have been better for me,” said Marissa Kaplan, Sales Director, Healthcare and Life Sciences. “It was great to meet other local Silverliners, as well as the larger leadership team. Everyone has been super welcoming and enthusiastic. Working together to pack activity kits for Project Sunshine was a blast, and I’m thrilled to be part of an organization that gives back.”
At The Cauldron, Silverliners had an immersive experience with mixology, molecular science, and creative technology, making potions (cocktails/mocktails) that smoked, bubbled, changed color, and tasted delicious. The magic was followed by team members showing off their singing talents at karaoke. If there were any Broadway producers in the crowd, we might end up with some Salesforce experts picking up a side hustle in musical theater.
We’re excited to continue bringing regional employees together with new Silverline World Tour stops in the coming year. Follow us on LinkedIn to keep up with all the latest Silverline news and learn about opportunities to join our team.
