In March of 2022, Sharethrough officially reopened its company headquarters in Montreal, QC. To celebrate the reopening, employees came together to create a collaborative office mural. As a company with creativity and collaboration at the center of its core values, Sharethrough provided employees with a fun filled day of socializing and painting. Continue reading to see how Sharethrough employees created the mural, from start to finish!

Step 1: A Company-Wide Brainstorm

A company office mural created by the employees, for the employees! To start things off, we knew that the way to creating a successful end product involved doing research and listening to our audience. In order to get ideas from Sharethrough employees, and to create a mural that best represented Sharethrough, we sent out a company-wide survey, seeing what sorts of stories, symbols, and concepts employees associated most with working at Sharethrough. The following questions were sent out as a survey, and provided us with plenty of inspiration (and stories) to lay the groundwork for the mural.

Chosen Words & Themes

We asked employees, “When thinking of Sharethrough's company culture, what words come to mind?”

“Happy hours, big family, open minded” said Julie Quilichini Senior Media Trader at Sharethrough.

“Connection, Collaboration, Technology, Community, Awards, Fun, Top-Notch Marketing” were some of the first words that came to mind for Sharethrough’s Graphic Designer, Benjamin Nikolajew.  

“inclusive, fun, positive, motivating, flexible” said Amanda Lang, Senior Revenue Operations Manager at Sharethrough. 

Objects Related to our Culture

Our second question asked about objects related to our culture, we asked: “Do any specific objects make you think of Sharethrough's culture?”

“A tree, because Sharethrough culture is compassionate and a place where everyone wants to see employees grow” said Cassie Tabert, Senior Sales Enablement Manager.

In terms of items that best represented our headquarters, Montreal Bagels was a popular choice, along with bicycles! Montreal is known for their bagels, and if you’ve ever visited the city, you’ve noticed how popular biking is as a means of transportation.

Good Times & Memories

All companies have a plethora of memories, and we are not any different! The final question of the survey was: “What are some of your best memories at Sharethrough?”

Throughout the survey, Sharethrough employees frequently named company offsites and in-person gatherings as some of their favourite memories. 

“The New York party was pretty cool. Getting to meet colleagues for the first time. Also, in person Kickoffs are always good memories” said Victor Petrescu, Software Engineer at Sharethrough.

“The 24 hr Tremblant event, and the 28 day challenges during covid” said Natacha Brind’Amour, VP of People & Culture at Sharethrough. She also highlighted how these events allow for plenty of opportunities to make new friends.

“Lots of surprise cupcakes with awards on top,” said Lauralyn Lamarche, Director of Brand and Communications at Sharethrough. 

"It was our virtual Halloween party, and I'd been with Sharethrough for less than a month. I was shy about participating, but everyone made me feel so welcome and at ease, it was impossible not to join!" shared Ari Belliu, Marketing Communications Specialist at Sharethrough.

At Sharethrough, coming together as a team is a priority. Sharethrough employees frequently unite as a group whether it is to celebrate achievements and awards, or the hiring of new employees. 

Step 2: Laying the Groundwork: Time For Our Design Team to Shine!

Once we received all employee answers to our company-wide survey, it was time to start designing the mural. Presented with all of the options for quotes, symbols, and objects that best represented Sharethrough, it was up to the marketing team to weave them all together. With the help of a ladder and a projector, Sharethrough employees traced the office mural outline. 4 hours and 10 sharpies later, the Sharethrough office mural outline was complete.

Step 3: The Finished Product - A Company Full of Artists!

With our mural outline complete, it was time for the painting festivities to begin! Sharethrough employees got together for a social gathering that consisted of drinks, food, and of course painting! The office mural took over 8 hours to complete, and involved employees from ALL teams. Check out the end-result!
