In this series, hear stories from Information Builders' returning staff. What is it about our company and culture that brings them back?
At Information Builders, we know our employees are happier and more productive when working in an environment that is supportive, engaging, and tech-passionate. This type of culture has also been the catalyst for many former employees to return to the company for another stint.
I’m one of them.
It’s a strange thing – going back. At first I wasn’t so sure because it’s natural to strive towards new opportunities, not feel like you are going in reverse. But after being away for 10 years at a start-up (an experience that I loved), I ultimately decided that I could have the best of both worlds. I rejoined Information Builders because I knew the market for BI and analytics was red hot, being reshaped in part by big data and data visualization trends. And I knew the role I was being offered would allow me to rock my skillset and the knowledge I had gained from getting my hands in every part of the marketing mix. I could have an exciting new job at a familiar company, one whose leadership and culture I knew well and admired. A place where I had made life-long friends. That was almost 5 years ago. I’m so happy to be back, working with a team of fantastic and super-talented people. It was a GREAT decision.
We reached out to several other individuals and asked them to share their stories, too. They have their own reasons and unique perspectives. They’ve experienced first-hand what it’s like to work here, part ways and ultimately come back. The reasons behind their returns are exactly what it takes for us to grow as a company both from a hiring sense and from a business point of view. Simply put, our employees are our greatest asset and allow us to deliver superior results for our customers using an integrated, holistic, business-centric approach to data and analytics.
Over the next several weeks, we’ll give you an opportunity to get to know some of our return employees in a blog series called: “Why I Came Back to Information Builders.”
