Happy First Birthday to iWorks’ Media Room
By: Jenna Harrity
In June 2021, the iWorks Media Room celebrates one year since it first went live on June 11, 2020. From IT how-to articles to work culture interviews with employees, the blogs and news articles published on the Media Room page of iWorks’ website demonstrate our employees’ creativity and expertise. We published 28 articles, meeting our goal to publish two articles a month.
The iWorks Media Room was born from a need; we needed a public space to share company news, events, and culture. Today, the iWorks Media Room categorizes its articles into four categories: Blogs, Charity Events, Company News, and Corporate News.
iWorks has an internal team of volunteer employees who manage the website and Media Room. Members of this team, in addition to many iWorks employees across various teams and professional backgrounds, have written and contributed articles for the Media Room, which is what makes iWorks Media Room unique: we want to amplify employee voices because we all have expertise to share. And with this ongoing goal in mind, iWorks celebrates the Media Room’s first birthday.
