In the hustle and daily grind of running a business, it’s important not to lose sight of what truly matters. At RSN Technologies, we always strive to keep our core values in mind: grace, honesty, hard work, and fun. We’d like to share why these four principles are important to us and how we implement them in our daily operations. Today we’ll explore the fourth and final core value in our list—fun.

Wait—aren’t we supposed to be at work?

The IT business is competitive, stressful, and demanding. Serving the senior living industry brings unique and pressing challenges every day. Communities aren’t calling us when everything is running smoothly—-they’re calling us when they have problems that need to be solved yesterday! 

To remain relevant and competitive, and best serve our clientele, RSN Technologies constantly strives to stay innovative, agile, and customer-centric. A spirit of fun is the special sauce that gives our corporate culture its flavor and attracts and keeps top-notch talent for our team. 

The bridge between hard work and grace

In previous articles, we explored our core values of Hard Work and Grace—getting the job done in good style. Fun is the bridge between the two. We work with technology, machines, and systems…. but at the end of the day, RSN Technologies is a team of people, and fun is an essential part of thriving as human beings.

At RSN we work hard, we work long hours, we expect a lot from our team, but we prioritize fun for our employees. We know that they do their best work and provide the best services to our clients when they are relaxed and inspired; challenged, without being overwhelmed. The ability to keep a clear head while solving problems amid stressful situations is what sets us apart and makes RSN Technologies a valuable resource for the communities we serve.

Fun in the IT industry—the secret to long term success

What we do at RSN Technologies can be stressful, but we intentionally build our team to be compassionate and thoughtful, in addition to having outstanding IT expertise.  RSN’s IT professionals understand the senior living industry and they understand the stresses the communities we serve are dealing with. We know it can be hard sometimes.

Infusing fun into our workday, scheduling special events, and building a sustainable balance of vacation and family time into our corporate culture at RSN helps us help you by: 

  • Reducing stress and improving our employees’ well-being. In a high-pressure industry like IT, burnout is a real hazard which can negatively impact teams’ performance and morale. Fun activities help our employees de-stress and recharge and lead to better work performance and job satisfaction.
  • Fostering creativity and innovation. When employees are engaged in fun activities, they are more likely to think outside the box and come up with innovative solutions to problems. We’ve found prioritizing fun in our operations gives us a competitive advantage! 
  • Improving team dynamics and collaboration. When employees enjoy spending time together, they work together effectively and communicate better. This means better teamwork, higher productivity, and completing projects more efficiently.

Keeping it fun (with some help from our four-legged friends)

With these guys in the office with us, fun is never far away! In our twenty-five years in business at RSN Technologies we’ve always made sure to create space for our employees to be themselves, enjoy what they do, and tap into their spirit of play. We believe the results we’ve gotten for the senior living communities we serve are the best possible endorsement of just how well our approach works.
