If you subscribe to our weekly newsletter, The Growler, last week you got a peek into one of our internal emails when we accidentally sent it out to the entire world.
While you were certainly never meant to see it, judging from the many emails Ryan received in response, everyone thought it was pretty cool.
So, this week, we decided to let you in on this tidbit of our company culture.
Each week, Ryan comes up with five quick paragraphs that he thinks the Brew Crew should hear. It varies from week to week — sometimes, like last week, he’ll talk about something on his mind, like the surge capacity article he shared with us about navigating the lingering pandemic when you’re at the end of your rope.
Sometimes he’ll give us a heads up about upcoming beer releases or company-wide events. We’ll hear about initiatives on the horizon — like our current employee survey.
He’ll sometimes provide us with sales numbers: how we’re doing this month, how it compares to last year, and how it compares to what we expected.
As part of his dedication to open-book management and financial literacy, Ryan always includes a bullet with a definition of a financial concept. Sometimes big-picture, sometimes smaller in scope, these lead the Brew Crew toward Ryan’s goal of having a financially literate workforce.
And sometimes, if we’re lucky, we’ll get a recent picture of his son Radley.
It’s a great way to keep us all on the same page, particularly when many of us are working from home or are on the road most of the time.
So, if you caught last week’s Five-Bullet Friday, we hope that you enjoyed that very unintentional glimpse into our culture at Cape May Brewing Company and Cape Beverage. It’s only one aspect of the company culture here that has served to grow this hometown brewery into the well-respected regional brewery that it is today.
Every day, we strive to earn the respect of our fans, and we expect to continue to do so for years to come.
