What are some social events your company does?

Our events are proof that Albert puts team-building first. Even with many departments in our busy start-up, Albert finds exciting ways to bring us together. This has included an afternoon ice-cream bar from Bluebird Creamery, a karaoke happy hour and professional mini-massages for Employee Appreciation Day. (I’ve never been so relaxed at work!)
