UpKeep Virtual Club Recruitment Fair

Ryan Chan

At UpKeep, it’s important to us that everyone stays connected even when working remotely. In fact, keeping company culture alive and helping our team feel a sense of security, normalcy and empowerment have been top of mind for us as we navigate through this unique season. To continue in our efforts to keep spirits high and connection strong, we decided to host a Virtual Club Recruitment Fair!

How it Works

First, we asked our entire team what clubs they would like to see at UpKeep on Slack! This was to spark conversation around shared interests across the team.

Then, we gathered all the responses on a Google Spreadsheet and asked members of our team to sign up to be a captain or co-captains. At the Virtual Club Recruitment Fair, captains were tasked to share a description of their club and recruit members to their private club Slack channel!

Our Clubs

Here are the thirty clubs that we have created at UpKeep!
