TCS recently has its quarterly retreat. We all met together at UofL’s Shelby campus and sipped bad coffee, played Apples to Apples, and played trivia games to grow more as a team. In the past year, there have been six new team members (including myself) which means we have almost doubled in size. Our office is tightly knit. Even though we have separate offices and desks, a good majority of our time is spent in conference rooms and community tables. It’s amazing how much work gets done amidst all the laughing we do.
From the time when TCS was only Bryce and Jessie, to today with a team of 13 (and growing) we are so proud of how far we have come. Our growth truly reflects our success because we have grown purely through cash flow. That means each position has been created out of a need for more hands and more ideas, not for the sake of hiring.
At the retreat we went over productivity, looked at numbers, and set high and attainable goals. As a new hire, it was an exciting conversation to be a part of.
The part of the day that stayed with me was at the very end. We had about an hour to just have open conversations with one another. Presidents, Partners, Managers, and New Hires all at the same table (as per usual with us) but all talking from the heart. We expressed how blessed we felt to be a part of a business like TCS, and to work among such wonderful people and with such great clients. It definitely means something when you give a group a platform to speak openly, and instead of complaints or concerns, you receive gratitude.
We want to take a moment and relay that gratitude to our clients, new and old, who have trusted us to grow their marketing– Thank you.
