Let’s Get the Week Started

One of our favourite perks, here in Polarity Technologies Ltd is the FREE lunches we get every Monday and Wednesday. What a great way to start the week knowing you don’t have to worry about packing a lunch on a Monday.

We have delicious food of all kinds, catered from the best restaurants of Nicosia, twice a week!

Whether we crave a traditional dish, salad or sushi, there are always plenty of choices at the area around our office.

The fact that we do not have to worry about food everyday, it’s quite relieving. We don’t have to cook as often, or buying lunch on a daily basis, and this saves us a significant amount of time and money.

In addition, having our lunch together brings us closer as a team. After the lunch breaks we feel relaxed, refreshed and full of energy.

If your current job is not awesome, stay tuned.

Here’s to Strong Women

The good weather makes this time of the year ideal for outdoor activities, therefore many sport events are taking place here in Cyprus during this season. A large number of men and women are testing their limits by taking part in short or long distance running races.

It’s surprising though that until 50 years ago women were not allowed to run long distance races. Marathons were for men.

Kathrine Switzer was the first woman who participated in a marathon race.

In 1967 Switzer slipped through the net by applying for the Boston marathon using her initials, ”KV Switzer”,  so organisers presumed she was a man, according to TelegraphThe race director, Jock Semple, spotted Switzer and tried to pull her out.  However, she managed to finish the race.

This incident was an unintentional start of a social movement for equality in sport. Thanks to her campaigning, Boston allowed women to compete 5 years later. Since then she became a symbol of female empowerment and social change.

On the 8th of March of every year we celebrate the rights women have asserted and gained so far.

Here in Polarity Technologies we offer equal opportunities regardless of sex, age, race or religion. What really matters to us is passion, skills and ability to adapt.

International Women’s Day 2019 – This Year’s Theme

This year’s theme is #BalanceForBetter : Think Equal, Build Smart, Innovate for Change

International Women’s Day is celebrated annually on March 8, promoting and encouraging the empowerment of women and the gender equality. According to Telegraph , its roots can be traced to 1908, when 15,000 women marched through New York City demanding voting rights, better pay and shorter working hours.

Although women have come a long way, there’s still more to be achieved.

Women are currently  under-represented in the tech sector , however Polarity Technologies would really like to see this changing in coming years. We encourage young girls to pursue the career of their dreams and to keep in mind that women can be whatever they want to be.

Here in Polarity Technologies we support diversity. We offer equal opportunities regardless of sex, age, race or religion. What really matters to us is passion, skills and ability to adapt.

This is Nicosia’s New Beer Place

In Polarity Technologies we love our team outings. Team outings are much more than just perks. By sharing common experiences we get closer, we open up and build trust. It’s our chance to understand better the way each person thinks and behaves. This improves collaboration in the workplace, makes us more engaged and effective as a team.

Each time we go out, we usually pick a new place. We love places with good food and beer therefore we wouldn’t miss Finders.

Finders is a new beer place with a retro touch that has recently opened in Nicosia, according to CheckinCyprus. In Finders you can find a wide variety of beer and delicious pub food, such as burgers, ribs, sausages and wraps. The place is warm and cosy with rock and retro decoration elements.

About Last Night’s Outing

Last night Polarity’s team, together with members of Grant Thornton Cyprus went for dinner to one of the most chic and busy restaurants in town. The environment was fantastic. Cosy yet elegant.  Every little detail was taken care of. The place was decorated nicely and the staff was very polite and helpful.

We had some fantastic cocktails before food, and a bottle of red wine. We then ordered the Maroccan  Style salad, the Beets & Goat Cheese salad, the Crispy Tuna and the Mushroom Tortellini for starter. We got impressed by the creativity, amazing taste and superior quality of the dishes. For main, most of us picked the Rib Eye Steak, where others went for the Sea Bass. Both choices were excellent.

Skinny Fox is for sure one of the most remarkable restaurants in Nicosia right now. If you have never been there before and you want to to try it out, we suggest to book early (… and be patient on the phone!)

In Polarity Technologies, we grab every opportunity to go to places and try new things out! If you enjoy our Business, Tech and Lifestyle news, follow Polarity Technologies Ltd on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and  Instagram.
