Beating the heat with Beach Summer

What a scorcher.

Here at Intelex HQ in Toronto, Canada, it is the hottest day of the year. At a rare 38°C (100 F), with a humidex of 49°C (120 F), it is hotter in the world’s second coldest country than it is almost anywhere in the U.S., including the entire state of Florida.

But though the weather may be hot, there’s still work to be done.

Fortunately, Intelex is in the midst of a Beach Summer. One-upping the typical ‘casual Fridays’ featured at many businesses, Intelex has gone all out. A Beach Summer basically means employees can wear any clothing that would be acceptable on a beach. No, not that kind of beach. A normal beach. Flip-flops. Shorts. Sunglasses. Hats. You name it.

While Intelex usually designates August of any given year a Beach Month, recent successes (and a string of hot weather) have resulted in July becoming a Beach Month as well. What can we say? Comfort breeds productivity and excellence. That’s our take. Plus, it means two months of not having to iron anything. How awesome is that?

If you like the idea of being comfy, cool and relaxed (yet highly productive) in the office, why not take a look at our careers page for opportunities?
