In the fall of 2015, I found myself reaching a breaking point with a typical organizational problem. The Social Edge team had grown to forty-five members, most of whom reported to me directly, the founder of this four year old professional services company.
We're sure you may have noticed that our website has changed just a bit. You can see we've done a complete overhaul - new navigation, redesign, more content - the works! The best part about all of this, is that our website is actually our very own Jive Community. We're very excited at how this turned out and what we were able to accomplish using the out-of-the-box features and functionality of Jive.
Wishing you and your team a happy and healthy holiday season.
This month, the Social Edge Consulting team is marking our fifth year in business. A leader I worked for earlier in my career would often conclude his remarks with, “work hard every day, but don’t forget to stop and smell the roses.” It is good advice for a team at a small business where every day is a whirlwind, with team members wearing multiple hats in order to effectively support our clients, partners, and each other. This five-year milestone is a great opportunity to reflect on our journey as a company as well as look toward the future.
On behalf of #GivingTuesday, Andrew Kratz announces two charitable contributions we're making on behalf of the Social Edge team. We're backing our commitment to freedom & fairness with an investment in minority small-owned businesses and communities, and making a donation to an organization that's meaningful to our clients and our employees.
