Department All Hands 2016: Lodges and Cities and Beaches, Oh My!

Formstack is headquartered in Indianapolis, but 50% of Formstackers live outside of Indy in regions across the United States, as well as Canada, Poland, and the Netherlands. Because Formstack is a distributed company, our leaders are intentional about bringing employees together for an annual meeting or two each year.

This spring, each individual team within Formstack got together for their second annual team “All Hands” events. All the meetups took place in the Midwest United States and involved lots of team building and good times. In fact, these in-person meetings are some of our most important corporate team building activities of the year!
