EMPAUA’s Lockdown Diaries tells the stories of Andrew, Tiberius, William, Laura and Steffi, all colleagues from our different offices around Europe, sharing their experiences and personal thoughts during the lockdown.
The coronavirus crisis has made us reinvent how we interact with each other and stay connected with our colleagues. Fortunately, our community is strong, and the real challenge was not being able to meet our colleagues and continue normal office life (which is really fun) for long weeks.
Since the lockdown began, our team members have been volunteering to lead different kind of virtual activities that we highly encourage you to start testing them with your colleagues, or at least we hope to spark some ideas for your team.
Our team is composed of a significant number of highly qualified certified professionals and in total, we have more than 200 Salesforce Certifications.

Whenever we tell someone that our salaries are, in fact, not only completely transparent but also self-set, we are usually met with incredulous gazes. Doesn’t that mean that everyone just gives themselves an incredibly high salary and the company will be bankrupt within months? Well, we are still here, so apparently not. In this blog post, we will explain how it works.
Feedback is essential for our development. That’s why a healthy feedback culture should be pursued in any company, but this applies all the more to a self-managed environment, where judgment from „above“ is missing and people are highly dependent on their self-awareness.
