While we’re hard at work improving the last mile experience, summer is the perfect time to take a break, connect with colleagues and have fun—and our amazing teams rise to the challenge of offering super events all summer long. That’s why today we’re giving you an inside look at a few highlights from around Stuart’s offices this summer.
Spain 🇪🇸 Team-building, three ways
It was an action-packed summer for our teams based in Spain, with tons of exciting activities from sport to sustainability. One popular favorite in the Barcelona office was a visit to the Catalunya en miniatura adventure park, where Stuwies spent the afternoon ziplining, conquering obstacle courses and building even stronger team spirit.
At our Madrid office, team-building took on a different vibe as we enjoyed an afterwork craft beer tasting complete with delicious snacks. Over delicious snacks, new joiners and old colleagues alike had a chance to catch up and get acquainted. A refreshing way to start the summer off right!
In addition to these great events, there were plenty of opportunities to try something new. For example, Stuwies in Spain organised a series of online workshops focused on recycling, designed to empower all attendees to make a difference. We also stepped up to field two teams for a local soccer league, staying active and playing some great games.
Poland 🇵🇱 New offices, growing team
Stuart’s Poland team kicked off the summer with an exciting change, moving into a brand new office space in the capital. Located in a business district affectionately known to locals as “Mordor”, our Warsaw office was inaugurated this June. Adding to the festivity, a few Stuwies visiting from Paris helped celebrate the occasion.
The new location is already getting rave reviews from our Polish teams, as they take full advantage of the terrace to catch some summer sun during busy days. To stay energised, there’s also a fully stocked coffee bar with five different brews—plus a dedicated space for grabbing a short nap. And according to Operations Executive Jakub Sykulski, the creative, bustling atmosphere and comfortable desks make the Warsaw office an amazing place to work.
As Stuart continues to expand in Poland, the Warsaw office is at the heart of our growing operations. Stuwies in Poland look forward to welcoming new colleagues on board over the coming weeks and months—as well as showing teams from international offices around. With a beautiful space in a dynamic city, we’re ready to begin big things this summer!
France 🇫🇷 Celebrating, rain or shine
Although it’s been an usually cold, rainy season, the weather couldn’t stop our teams from getting into the summer spirit in Paris. First, we stayed in for some fabulous virtual events, like the “500 Stuwies” quiz. Next, we grabbed our umbrellas and headed out to team offsites for Product, Operations and HR colleagues to get a change of scenery and encourage thinking outside the parcel.
Another much-anticipated occasion was the housewarming for Stuart’s Partner center in the Paris city area. On a rare nice day, we officially unveiled a new space dedicated to connecting with courier partners. And what better way to show it off than with classic cookout cuisine and a table football tournament?
Finally, our French teams enjoyed a chance to get together at the year’s Summer party. This afterwork brought more than 80 current Stuwies and Stuart alums to a picturesque corner of Paris to meet, chat and raise a glass to new adventures. A memorable moment that really demonstrated how our company culture fosters not just high performance, but also strong relationships.
Stuart 💙 summer
As these highlights suggest, summer at Stuart is jam packed with events that offer something for everyone. While the continuing COVID-19 pandemic means that some plans have had to change, the most important thing is making time to appreciate the sunny days alongside our fantastic colleagues. Happy summer from all of us at Stuart!
