Walking through the doors of Upshot every day and feeling the positive mojo that our great culture and happy, engaged people generate motivates me the most. You feel it immediately, that sense of something exceptional happening here. That’s a great feeling that I want to perpetuate. I also believe that being a great place to work is the difference between being a good company and a great company. When a company truly cares about its people, nurtures the culture, defines the purpose, creates a great environment and offers challenging work, great things happen. Striving to be a great place to work is not easy, but it’s definitely worth it.
