Last week was Culture Week and we spent each day celebrating the incredible diversity of our employees and the stories that make up who we are at RingCentral. Be sure to check out each day’s featured RingCentral employee and their unique perspective.
Employee Resource Groups and you.
Our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) play a crucial role in the fabric of our culture. They provide a forum for our members to come together, share their experiences, and support one another. Your membership and participation help us create a more welcoming and supportive environment for all. Get to know more about our nine ERGs here.
Our people around the world are what drive our innovation every day. We are innovators with the creativity, passion, and determination to challenge and introduce new ideas. In this video, Jimmy Xu, our Team Lead for VoIP Applications, talks about how he was first introduced to technology and how it inspires him to create with his team. In keeping with our “We Innovate” theme, Monday our Black Employees at RingCentral (BE@R) ERG hosted the Black Gold Leadership Forum with the Reverend Al Sharpton, founder and president of National Action Network (NAN). Rooted in the spirit and tradition of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., NAN promotes a modern civil rights agenda that includes the fight for one standard of justice, decency, and equal opportunity for all.
We are collaborators who work together, leveraging our unique skills and perspectives to achieve a shared outcome. Meet Ben Pintilie, leader of RingCentral’s Rainbow Alliance ERG and Technical Enablement Manager in the UK. Ben talks about his passion for inclusive collaboration and how he brings his truest self to work. In keeping with the theme, “We Collaborate,” Pintilie facilitated mini rounds of speed networking where participants were given a series of questions to answer while rotating amongst colleagues in small RingCentral video breakout rooms.
RingCentral employees are creators who have the ability to turn our imagination into ideas using our talents and skills. Jace Henderson is an artist, producer, father, creative, and Account Executive at RingCentral. In this short video, Jace talks about bringing his authentic self to work while using creativity to find solutions.
Celebrating the theme “We Create,” on Wednesday our Pan-Asian Network at RingCentral ERG hosted an origami workshop. Using the Japanese art of paper folding, participants were encouraged to transform flat sheets of paper into three-dimensional sculptures.
We empower each other by providing support, encouragement, and autonomy to achieve our goals and to reach our full potential. Thursday’s festivities were hosted by Generations at RingCentral ERG and kicked off with a culturally diverse potluck featuring a wide range of international cuisine. Generations also arranged for a professional photographer to be on-site at our Belmont, Charlotte, and Denver offices so employees could update their headshots.
Meet Renee Mann, co-leader of RingCentral’s Indigenous ERG and passionate participant of our RingCentral Foundation, for volunteering and social impact. Learn more about how Renee first got introduced to community service and how she brings her passion for volunteering to work. Our Help and Understanding Group at RingCentral (HUGS) hosted Friday’s “We Care” virtual volunteering event along with RingCentral Foundation. Participants volunteered for the non-profit, Feel the Beat, to learn American Sign Language and record birthday greetings for children with hearing impairment. Their messages will make a kid’s birthday even more special!
We “Win as One!”
For Culture Week, we highlighted our ERGs and the rich tapestry of individuals that make up our workplace. We recognized each individual’s unique talents and perspectives and the importance of their stories. Sharing these stories helped us to build connections, foster understanding, and create a more inclusive workplace. At RingCentral we know everyone is essential in order to “Win as One.”
