It’s definitely an honor to be viewed as a company that is “doing good things”, and we are always happy to share. The “good things” people want to learn about are really just our culture and its manifestations. After visiting with us, one concerning comment we frequently hear from visitors is that they don’t know how to get started, or even that it seems too daunting to try to build a healthy culture in their company.
