Internally we have been mulling over the pros and cons of having an office in the Toronto metro area for administrative employees and a separate brewing facility outside of the city for the production team and workers. On the one hand, some people feel that having the workforce in two separate locations creates an “us” and “them” mentality between employees. On the other hand, the workplace cultures of the two groups might be quite divergent - clean room and science labs vs. suits and computers. Also, there are some that believe you can attract more candidates when they don’t have to commute to a remote production facility. Likewise, some believe that having the entire team in one place builds camaraderie and community.
