IT Department Participates in Biannual Hackathon Event

Twice a year, BCS’ IT department participates in a “Hackathon” that allows employees two days off to spend time honing their craft. Participants can use the time to learn new technologies, address a nagging problem, or innovate new concepts and ideas to better the business.

Last month, seven cross-functional teams participated in Hackathon projects, including:

  • Improving the project tracking and requirements process
  • Maximizing the Office 365 suite to automate approval processes and flows
  • Innovating ideas for the Culture Team
  • Refreshing internal databases and processes

These events provide opportunities for innovation, imagination, and initiative, and help further our company and our culture.
