That’s right…it’s one of our favorite times of the year here at PagerDuty: Movember. Not only do we get to grow awesome mustaches, but we are also supporting a great cause as a work community. There’s something special and exciting about watching an epic ‘stache evolve over the month while supporting and raising awareness for men’s health. For the third year in a row, we’ve joined forces with the Movember Foundation, the leading organization committed to – quite literally – changing the face of men’s health.
How does it work, you ask? PagerDuty “Mo Bros” shave their face on the first day of the month and after that, no mo’. Sure, you can trim and groom the ‘stache however you see fit – some opt for the handlebar, the villain, the sheriff – but the object is to grow it out as long as possible. Of course, we can’t forget about our “Mo Sistas” either! Ladies can show support for the cause by creating buzz around the office or donating to the Movember Foundation.
At the end of the month, we compare “results” and vote on the most epic mustache, and and winner is crowned Mr. Movember. The most enthusiastic gal throughout the month earns the title “Miss Movember.” We actually get quite competitive about it. It’s not uncommon to see a bidding war to shave mid-month between the most threatening, hefty Mo Bro ‘staches. We end the month with a Movember Party where the “Mo Bros” shave the mustaches and we snap after shots. Sounds like fun? ABSOLUTELY. Join our team and track our progress at our Mo Space page.

Go Mo Bros, grow!
