The next two days were equally caffeine-and-excitement-fueled and busy, filled with tax questions and scenarios I had never thought I would need to know the answers to. Luckily for us, LifeLine was supported by both our tax and technology experts, and there was always someone close by who could help when we Social folks got stumped. The best thing by far about the experience was getting to work alongside so many other talented and knowledgeable Intuit employees who were helpful and encouraging to those of us non-experts, and of course to our customers. And it wasn’t just the fact that the experts were #HereToHelp, it was the fact that regardless of what your normal role was at Intuit, whether you are a Business Development Manager, a Marketing Director, a VP, or even if you are the founder of the company, you showed up at LifeLine to help our customers when they needed us most.
As a remote employee I can sometimes feel a little distant from my own team, let alone the rest of the company. I know we all have the same missions and goals at the core of what we are doing, but I definitely don’t get the chance to build a sense of camaraderie that I would if I was in the office every day. That’s exactly why I will always jump at a chance to participate in LifeLine or any other events that allow me to roll up my sleeves and work alongside folks from throughout the company. I like to think I am living and breathing it in every bit of work that I do, but I always love the chance to grow and be reminded that we are #OneIntuit.
