    NFLPA Emoji MVP Candidates

     

    To celebrate our new NFLPA Emoji Collection, we decided to break down which Emojis may be trending towards an MVP award this season. Check it out to see if your favorite player is on our list. If he’s not, let us know why he should be.  


    5) Lamar Jackson

    As the reigning MVP, Lamar’s got our #BigTruzz that he’ll have another winning season, but with a full year on tape for other teams to study, he may be due for some regression.

    4) Russell Wilson

    Russ would be higher on this list if his Emoji were wearing a chef’s hat and apron. #LetRussCook. We’re talking to you, Pete Carroll.

    3) Kyler Murray

    Kyler’s Emoji has a headband and is cute like Baby Yoda. Kliff Kingsbury is one lucky guy.

    2) Dak Prescott 

    Dak may not have been rewarded with a contract extension, but Jerry did give him his own Emoji. Oh, and CeeDee Lamb, too.

    1) Patrick Mahomes 

      Pat got his own Emoji (with a headband) and a massive contract extension this offseason. Don’t tell Dak.

    How ISlide Employees are Working From Home

    The Coronavirus pandemic sent ISlide employees from our desks in Hyde Park to living rooms and home offices across Massachusetts and the world. COVID-19 may have scattered ISlide employees, but the spirit and culture of ISlide is alive as ever. Here’s how ISlide employees are making their WFH experience special.

    Sam Pease, Product Director

    Sam has used his extra time to dive into gardening. When starting his day, Sam says, “I like to go through my email, and make sure I have no pressing requests. Then I like to take a look at my garden, and see how my vegetables look.” And although Sam feels equally productive at home as at the office, he misses face-to-face interaction with his coworkers as it’s “definitely beneficial for collaborative work.”

    “Working from home is nice because my wife is a nurse, and she's home some days. I love getting to have lunch with her.”

    Tyler Nordquist Licensing Manager and Dylan Quint, Sales Associate Team Dealer Accounts

    Both Tyler and Dylan are Work From Home converts. Dylan enjoys the opportunity to “ spend quality times with the boysss.” The two enjoy a cup of coffee together in the morning (while Tyler answers the 30 emails he gets from JK sent at 6am)  and a workout break at midday. 

    “It’s nice to get a break to take a walk or workout which ends up making me more productive throughout the day once I get a breather.”

    The two love the flexibility of working from home. With no commute, they have more time for work and other activities. It’s clear that the two will incorporate virtual workdays into their schedule going forward.

    Stephen “Bas” Basden, Brand Manager

    Like many ISlide employees, Bas enjoys a cup of coffee and the outdoors in the morning before his daily Zoom calls and to-dos. One struggle he faces is the lack of a work-from-home space in his rented apartment. Although Bas can’t wait to get back to the office full time, he has made work from home more fun with his ISlides.

    “Dedicated slides for...everything. I have a pair for each makeshift workstation (kitchen, bedroom, living room) as well as a "step outside pair", drinking coffee pair, snack break pair. The list goes on and on.”

     

    Marjorie “Jojo” Juste

    Jojo is making the best of her time working virtually. She starts her day by answering the sales call line and responding to customer inquiries. With fewer distractions, Jojo is able to get more work done in closing sales and speaking with her customers on the phone. For Jojo, the worst part is missing the “laughs and conversations at the office with the whole team.” But that doesn’t stop her from having fun:

    “I have my speakers set up around my work space and just play Beyoncé and old school music while I dive into work. It really helps me stay focused and calm when I have a huge workload for the day. I would say the "JoYonce" in me comes out during these times and in private.”

     

    Marlowe Scott, Sales Associate

    Marlowe is enjoying a life without rush-hour traffic while working from home and saving on gas money. He starts his day with coffee and a shower before starting on bulk submissions and customer follow ups. He makes his space special by playing music and adding a scent to his diffuser. Although he likes working from home, he does miss being in the office.

    "The worst parts are not having daily in-person interactions with the team and after work pickup games."

     

    Joscelyn Paglia, Marketing Intern

    As a marketing intern, Joscelyn’s summer has been different than originally expected, however, she has made the most of it. Although she wishes she could bounce more ideas off her coworkers, Joscelyn loves using the 30 minutes she saves on the commute to get extra sleep. Joscelyn also has made her impromptu office her own.

    “I like to keep my workspace organized and put my legs up and stretch out!”

    Joscelyn returns to the University of Miami in the fall for her senior year. She is looking forward to being back on campus.
