People commonly talk about their coworkers as their “second family” and with good reason–we spend a significant portion of our time at work with colleagues. At Promega, we cultivate an environment of connection among employees so strong bonds can be nurtured and extend through the company to our families and community. From team-building activities to employees joining together to share in hobbies, connecting people together is the foundation of what we do.
Promega Biosciences Combines Ziplining with Mindfulness Training. Our team at Promega Biosciences in San Luis Obispo, CA, came together for a day of team building centered on Mindfulness. Beginning with an introduction to mindfulness and ESI, the group then embarked on a zipline and ropes course that encouraged them to check-in with themselves, stay actively present, and partake in thought-provoking conversation with one another about their experiences. This unique and fun team building aimed to lay the foundation for new bonds with coworkers and to help everyone leave with some mindful tools to use in their everyday lives.

For those at Promega headquarters who are musically-inclined have joined forces to create the band “Lead Generation.” For over a decade, employees ranging from scientists, marketers, IT specialists and administrators have come together to share their talents and spend time making music. The 35 active participants perform at functions throughout the year like all-company meetings and employee recognition breakfasts.
