The Berlin Office moves to a new building!

Category: Mozilla Spaces

It's an exciting time for the Mozilla family! This past March construction began on the new Berlin MozSpace.  With a breathtaking view of the river, the new build-out covers two floors and will feature a designated lunch area, an event space, common work space and a separate community space with room for future growth. The card access system we have at all other MozSpaces will also be implemented.  Surrounded by trendy restaurants, the central location was sought out for its diverse population - in the heart of the community.  The target timeline for the office move is in Q3.  Stay tuned for more exciting developments!

Thanks to WPR's Rob Middleton, Lori Jashinsky, Mandy Chan, Quyen Huyhn and our Office Service Coordinator Martyna Sobczak. With Martyna donning her steel-toed-boots, you can be assured it will be a smoothly run operation!

Mozillians Coming Together in each MozSpace!

Category: Mozilla Spaces

As our organization grows, we are always looking for ways to increase employee engagement, productivity and overall morale in the workplace.

With your valuable feedback, each of our sites was able to offer activities that were impactful and cost effective. Here's a look at what we’ve been up to:

The simplest things such as taking a 15 min walk after lunch for fresh air or doing mini challenges such as planking or 5 min wall-sit challenges with a group can be a nice breather. While some may get together for a breakfast treat, others will get together in the evening and share their passion for wine or beer or engage in competitive board games. What about meditating together? That helps too!

We are always looking for new and fun ways of enhancing employee happiness and engagement in the workplace. It's important to us. If you have any ideas or suggestions, feel free reach out to your local Offices Services Coordinator. As Mozillians, let's continue to share our community spirit and also welcome new staff to join in.

Home Space Worker Guidelines

Category: Tips

Remote Mozilla full time employees can utilize benefits described in the Home Space Worker Guidelines . 

Helpful tips for Home Space Workers:

  • Running Effective Recurring Meetings: Alternate times so the same people on different time zones aren’t always making exceptions. Have an agenda with action items or record the meeting. Make sure all those who need to be there are invited. Make sure everyone has a voice, whether introvert or extrovert. Rotate administrative duties.
  • Clear writing: Think about the desired outcome before you communicate. Put yourselves in the audience shoes.
  • Ask for feedback & help (no points for doing it alone).
  • Type in the open: When you’re creating information make sure it’s easy to locate, easy to search and open for everyone to contribute to.
  • Be proactive in Building Trust with others before you need them. Be positive and assume positive intent from others.
  • Remote Working: Avoiding Overtime and Some Helpful Tips: Establish a schedule so office-based employees know when your day is over. Don’t forget to eat, take breaks, stretch and go outside. Try being 2 mins early for vidyo calls. It will help you bond with teammates as they join and engage in small talk.
  • Avoid out-of-sight and out-of-mind syndrome: Be passionate and vocal. Update your status mozillians.org to let others know what you’re working on.

Try some and let us know how they work!

Taipei Year End Banquet

Category: Mozilla Spaces

Our Taipei office held the year end banquet- Weiya (Chinese: ŚįĺÁČô) on the 3rd February. The banquet is a Taiwanese tradition for corporations, annually held before the Chinese new year vacation.

2016 is the Year of the Monkey according to Chinese zodiac. The Chinese Zodiac, known as Sheng Xiao, is based on a twelve-year cycle, each year in that cycle related to an animal sign. These signs are the rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog and pig.

Here are some photos of our Mozillians celebrating Weiya:

Berlin’s New Conference Suite

Category: Mozilla Spaces

We have a new conference suite (Building 12) in the Berlin office. Despite the elevator being out of order during the furniture move, we still managed to move all the furniture up the stairs with the help of our Berlin employees. (Thanks everyone!)
In Building 12, we added 7 new conference rooms all named after Berlin city districts; we also added 4 new phone booths to our original space, Building 10. The two buildings are only a few minutes walk away!
