Our two largest offices are in Vail, CO and Stowe, VT, so annual company ski days our common and many of us, including our CEO, regularly shows up at the office after a few morning runs at the mountain. Skiing aside, we raft together, golf together, bike together, and grab beers together. Every employee is reimbursed for a portion of their season pass purchase or gym membership or whatever they do to balance time in the office and keep themselves healthy and happy. We absolutely work hard and do incredible things, but we also make sure we can enjoy the beautiful places we call home.
All employees at LDT have a $650 annual allowance to enter races and events. Whether it’s an obstacle course race or a 5K, we encourage one another to go to large and small events alike. In the UK, a 5K or 10K might be £10 to enter, but these are the grassroots organizers that make up a lot of our marketplace and we love interacting with our clients and communities. There’s nothing more rewarding than spending time with the communities we serve while also doing our bodies good! On top of our annual allowance, we also have subsidized gym memberships. Given our product, we get our fair share of free event entries from the partners we work with and often enter events as a team. (These are super fun and totally optional.)
It’s important to us that everyone feel welcome and free to be themselves. No one is pressured to participate in races or athletics events. That said, it may happen. We had one developer join us as a “might go for guilt-driven run once every few months” type of person. However, after seeing these races on screen every day for months on end, she eventually signed up to her first 10K… and then her first half marathon... and then a sprint triathlon… One day, she announced that she’d entered a 78-mile ultra marathon 🙀 and ended up leading the charge in recruiting several other team members for training runs before crushing her ultra. 🙌
We fully support one another regardless of what their interests are. We love getting out as a team whether it’s running, cycling, or going out for a beer after work. Most of us (five so far and counting!) have recently moved to SF from London, and are doing our best to explore the trails, roads, and slopes within striking distance of the Bay Area on the weekends.
