Gurtam's Georgian Week: uniting teams worldwide for creativity and collaboration
Follow us

How about bringing together 240 people from all over the world for one week to collaborate and share valuable experiences? That’s not the boring conference you may imagine; that’s Gurtam’s Georgian Week, a major team-building session for the Gurtam people, filled with different activities to educate, inspire, and build connections.

Gurtam is all about passionate, creative, and ambitious people who team up to share their perspectives and valuable experiences. As a global software developer headquartered in Vilnius, Lithuania, Gurtam operates with remote teams that communicate via Slack, Google Meet, and emails. 

For a team with numerous locations and time zones, investing efforts into team bonding and connection becomes crucial. Events like this are believed to be a tool that connects people, which leads to faster and more effective cooperation on mutual projects.

To strengthen connections, Gurtam started a tradition of annual get-togethers. In 2023, the big gathering took place in Vilnius, Lithuania, and in 2024, the office in Georgia hosted the event.

My goal was to meet in person with the people I've been teaching online. Seeing someone face-to-face and having a real conversation changes something inside, making future interactions with that colleague smoother and more genuine. It's a completely different level of connection.

Our schedule was packed with meetings throughout the week, including several major sessions and presentations for the entire Customer Service department. We had a team meeting focused on the Project of the Year competition and held separate sessions with the Product team and the Quality Control and Training team to collaborate on departmental processes. Overall, it was a highly productive week.

You get to know your colleagues better, as you can see people in person and it's totally different from working remotely. I can reach people faster; I can talk to my boss in a second if I have an issue. For me, it's important to see the difference between cultures, and for me, Gurtam's office here in Tbilisi gave me this opportunity.

Activities like this are invaluable for team bonding. At Gurtam, creating an open and transparent atmosphere where employees can connect and integrate into our company culture is essential. With multiple permanent and remote locations within our company, establishing a shared space for personal connections is a significant endeavor for our HR team that yields long-lasting benefits.
