PaperCut takes on Labman 2019

I took a trip to Labman 2019. These are my observations from the event.

They’re hard-hitting, controversial, sometimes a little weepy, even.

Make up your own mind, if you dare.

Pride at PaperCut

And just like that, Pride month is over for another year! Pride Month runs throughout June to commemorate the Stonewall Riots which took place in June 1969 and to highlight the impact that LGBTQI+ communities have had on society across the world. Here at PaperCut, we reflected and celebrated Pride in style in the final […]

REVEALED: What really happens to interns at PaperCut?

IBL, in my mind, stands for ‘Incredibly Brainy Legends’. However, I’m told the more popular meaning for the acronym is ‘Industry Based Learning’. Since 2015, PaperCut has paired up with Melbourne’s Swinburne University to support year-long professional placements to students. As it happens, many of those placements have progressed into permanent roles. Just ask our […]

Return of the Constructival – episode V

Constructival is PaperCut’s version of a tech hackathon (construction + festival). This two-day event is the source of many projects that make their way into workplaces.

Here’s what happens according to an event organizer and a participant.

Why PaperCut cares about kids coding

Recently, the pitter patter of mini PaperCutter feet echoed through the office as they dropped their parents off at work and headed to Code Camp.

Twelve eager students spent three days not only learning to code, but applying their learnings by building their own game.

Here’s why we’re teaching them young (no, it’s not for the cheap labour – promise).

Designing a job swap

A while ago I swapped jobs.

Nothing unusual in that. People change jobs all the time, right?

Except … this swap was only for three weeks.

Let me explain.

Meet the poetry-paraphrasing PaperCut Integrations team

Ryan Reichenberg is the newest member of the greatly expanded Integrations team. The team’s grown 300% this year.

PaperCut’s growth has meant an increase in the number of customers wanting to integrate PaperCut into their existing systems. The demand has somewhat escaped Alec capabilities and therefore – all new team!

Getting PaperCut ‘n’ crafty with our paper recycling

Once upon a time, a recycling bin sat in the corner, gorging itself on unwanted printouts. After the installation of PaperCut MF, it was used sparingly. A very good thing.

I thought I’d give these scraps a second chance at life in the following daggy but practical uses for reusing paper in the office.

Celebrating International Women’s Day

In the lead up to International Women’s Day this year, we asked female leaders within PaperCut about their workplace experiences.

We were keen to not only celebrate their contributions, but also recognise women for the challenges they continually face and overcome in the male-dominated IT industry.

Here’s what they had to say.

It’s Employee Appreciation Day every day

Employees are cool.

They’re the ones that get stuff done and make you look good – but only if you look after them. We get stuff done at PaperCut because boy, do we recognise and appreciate our team!

Here’s what appreciation looks like at PaperCut.

Giving back to the community through our new leave initiative

We believe in providing a better future for our planet and the people who live on it.

By following our core values, we’ve grown into a successful business over the past 20 years.

So how do we make sure our caring culture continues as we do? Here’s just one way.
