Atlassian loves to put on fun events that allow employees to blow off steam and bond outside the office. Most recently, the team took part in an all-day arcade excursion. They competed in laser tag, smashed into one another in bumper cars, and whacked a few moles before heading out for some food, fun, and cocktails.
Each employee at Atlassian is afforded two separate personal development budgets. One amount is to be used for classroom course learning, university degrees, conferences, and workshops. The other is an allotment for educational materials like job-related books or training manuals. In this way, the company grows itself by growing its people first.
