We're TINYpulse's Happiest Company of 2017!
Getting this award (yeah, we got a physical award!) is an incredible honor.
I still remember working to get buy-in to use TINYpulse (a tool for monitoring team happiness and culture) at the job I had before founding UpBuild. Rand Fishkin had spoken about the tool in his "SEO Tools Shootout" at SEMpdx's SearchFest 2013 and I was dying to try it out after that.
When I started UpBuild in 2015, I wasn't sure about a lot of things, but I was sure that I was going to use TINYpulse. We started using it almost right away. I even tried to get our first bookkeeper to fill out Pulses. Years later (I really can't believe it's almost been three years), I'm blown away that we've earned this recognition from them.
I'm incredibly grateful to the team that's made this possible, the experiences and perspectives we've all brought to the table, and the lessons we've learned along the way. I'm also just plain excited to have some external validation that we're doing the right things and progressing in the direction that we've set for ourselves. There's always room to improve and do better; this is still just the beginning.
