Life as a Scandit employee is always busy but never dull. A perfect example of the fast-paced, fun Scandit work culture in action is our recent corporate event in sunny Barcelona, Spain.

From May 17-19, 2017, Scandit employees from the US, UK, Switzerland, France, and other points across Europe gathered in Barcelona to share ideas, collaborate on innovation and soak up some of the local culture. Here are a few highlights from the event.

Meyers-Briggs Type Indicator
Employees were given the option of taking the Meyers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) questionnaire. Scandit made clear that MBTI is not an absolute determination of anyone’s personality, nobody had to take the test, and that sharing the results would be optional.

With that in mind, virtually all employees participated and happily shared their results. The company has a solid mixture of introverts and extroverts, sensing and intuitive types, thinkers and feelers, and judgers and perceivers.

To add to the fun, each type was assigned a representative character from the Star Wars movies. Scandit has an impressive mix of Darth Vaders, Luke Skywalkers, Han Solos, Princess Leias, and many other intergalactic favorites. Our diverse combination of personalities and work approaches is a cornerstone of our success.

Of course, Barcelona itself was a major feature of the event. Employees had time to explore the city on their own, and team lunches and dinners exposed everyone to the cuisine and culture of Spain. Team barcelona sailactivities such as a late afternoon Mediterranean sailing excursion and a scavenger hunt of historic sites across Barcelona brought everyone together and reinforced the special nature of the Catalonian setting.

Whether we’re jetting off to Barcelona, developing innovative new data capture features such as MatrixScan, or revolutionizing how industries like retail manage their workflows, Scandit is always doing something exciting and worthwhile.
