Last month we caught up for our very first company trip in Melbourne. With the team growing to 12 employees over the last year, it was time for everyone to come together to reflect on the Comply Group journey so far and plan ahead for the next year as a team.
Employees flew into Melbourne from Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide and Sydney, with the Melbourne team joining everyone to stay at a hotel in the CBD for three nights. It was a jam-packed few days - here’s what we got up to! 👇
The first day of the retreat was designed to get everyone on the same page about the company’s products and how they have grown to date, as well as how the various teams would be working both independently and collectively to achieve the company goals set out in the coming days.
The morning kicked off with a focus on Labflow. Our product manager, Travis Low, gave a presentation sharing an overview of the software with some behind the scenes demos. CEO, Ben Richardson, spoke about how our current customers are using the software, with some insightful data to show the positive impact the product has had on the labs currently using Labflow.
We had an update about our partnership memberships from Rasyid Ibrahim, our junior partnerships manager, as well as a company overview on Comply Group from Brendan White, COO. Amelia Allan concluded the afternoon with a presentation to update the team on what’s been happening from a marketing and content perspective.
After lunch we had guest speaker, Dr. David Richardson give a virtual presentation from his clinic in Eden, NSW. Owner of Eden Chiropractic Clinic, David is a chiropractor who has been researching neurology and its association with complex medical conditions.
Over the past three years our team has been conducting research & development to build an Artificial Intelligence (AI) algorithm to instantly assess current neurological status. It was a fascinating talk by David, where we gained a deeper insight into what Ocula, our impairment assessment app currently in Beta testing, will assist practitioners with diagnosing and treating patients with concussion.
Lead software engineer, Brendan O’Brien followed up with a presentation that provided further insight into Ocula, providing information on the model and how it learns from the data it is presented with.
Today was also an opportunity to get some professional headshots taken, and so we had Cam from CAMVAN join us for a couple of hours to take some individual and team photos.
Once the work day wrapped up, it was time for our first surprise team activity. We all bundled into a few Ubers and tried to guess where we were going on the way. None of us had guessed correctly that we’d be battling it out on the mini-golf course at Holey Moley! We also had no idea how good our senior developer, Bill Pearce was at mini golf until we witnessed him score not one, but three holes in one in a row, and another two later in the game ⛳ 😮
After the game, we headed back to the hotel for a break, before reconvening for dinner to end the night at Magic Mountain Saloon 😋
The second day began with a presentation from our HR representative, Jess Chadakorn. Jess spoke about the ERP program she is engaging with, as well as providing a general update on the the HR policies being implemented in the company.
We then broke off into two teams, development and growth, to start planning out the remainder of the year and the first half of next year. While we cannot divulge the specifics of these sessions, what we can say is that we have so many exciting things in the works that we can’t wait to share with you all in the coming months!
Next up was our second surprise team activity! So, what does a tech startup do for a team bonding exercise? The answer is VR gaming. We arrived at Zero Latency at the Docklands to fight some pirates in a virtual reality version of popular game, Fallout.
After a couple of rounds, we were ready to head to our final company dinner, this time for Spanish tapas at Movida Aqui. The next morning it was time for everyone to fly back home!
All in all, our first Comply Group company retreat was a huge success, bringing the team closer by building on our existing community-driven culture that has been fostered from the very beginning. We can’t stop, won’t stop talking about it any time soon!
We partnered with trusted payroll and accounting system, MYOB Greentree, to create a mobile-friendly employee self service portal.
We've been working behind the scenes to update the branding for our pathology automation product, Labflow, and we have a shiny new website to share with you!
