An Insider's view of Khoros

What are some social events your company does?

Khoros embodies cultural diversity through inclusivity and team engagement. Not only do we offer daily catered lunches and weekly bootcamp and yoga classes, but we organize unique monthly happy hour experiences (mixology contests, candle making, mindfulness classes), quarterly volunteer opportunities, and partnerships with local nonprofits.

What does your typical day look like?

My day starts with a quick check of Slack for anything urgent. Daily meetings include selecting new vendors, working on implementations, supporting the business with projects, or having 1x1s. I try to block time for focused project work, daily walks, and lunch away from my desk. In between, I'll catch up on our social Slack channels!
