An Insider's view of Paperless Post

What are some social events your company does?

On the regular, we'll have meetings over food that allows for a moment of chit chat. We also organize movie nights and launch parties for our achievements. To top it off, we have raffles for pottery classes or exercise passes for cycling or boxing. Some events have become a tradition like having a rooftop summer pizza party.
