Cloudinary Looks Out for Employees During the Pandemic Crisis

Quote
“Resilience is accepting your new reality, even if it's less good than the one you had before. You can fight it, you can do nothing but scream about what you've lost, or you can accept that and try to put together something that's good.” ― Elizabeth Edwards

In the current global climate our new normal’s ultimate opportunity is to focus on one common goal. At Cloudinary, that goal is staying healthy, balanced, and engaged with our employees. We are a company that strives to be inclusive, informative, and impactful. By building a support system within our teams, alongside our peers, and throughout our company we engage, educate, and elevate our employees’ experiences to encourage them to dock the workstations along the way whenever necessary. Notwithstanding all that stress, it feels great to know that Cloudinary cares about the well being of the bottom line and the physical and mental health of all Cloudinarians.

High standards on collaboration are a theme here at Cloudinary. Activities, workshops, and thoughtful gestures of how much value each employee brings to the table are just small examples of how our inclusive culture understands and embraces these trying times. In addition, reflections on the effectiveness of one’s contribution can come into play when you’re juggling family life, homeschooling the kids, and jumping on and off of conference calls.

Our leadership is constantly mindful of the importance of all employees’ self-care to effectively manage their workload with the least amount of stress possible.

Communication and remote collaboration with various tools is key to keeping morale positive and employees productive. Employees are then committed to achieving awareness of business goals and market intelligence while continuously motivating one another to stay the course.

How Quality and Quantity can go Hand in Hand

When it comes to quality versus quantity, you’ll often hear people say, “It’s the quality that counts, not the quantity”. While that’s true in many situations, there are also cases where you want both quality and quantity. You may have thousands of images on your website and you want them all to look great. This is especially important if your website allows users to upload their own content, for example, to sell their own products or services. You don't want their poor quality images to reflect badly on your brand.
