Why did you join GadellNet?
I had hit a plateau in my professional growth and development which inspired me to look for new opportunities. As I went through the interview process at GadellNet and had a chance to meet more of the team, it became immediately clear that the people and culture in place are special. When you empower your employees to be the best versions of themselves and invest in the whole person, they then present that best version of themselves to their clients, which is why I believe there has been an abundance of growth and success.
What sets GadellNet apart from the competition?
The People and Culture! GadellNet has a diverse and exceptionally talented team with a culture focused on maximizing the potential of its employees while simultaneously focusing on our communities to make the world a better place.
Describe GadellNet in one word:
Why do you love GadellNet?
Our people, culture of growth, and commitment to our communities.
How would you describe GadellNet’s culture?
It may sound cliché, but our people coupled with our core values do a great job of setting a tone for the culture at GadellNet and it is on display everyday:
People: I believe because we are intentionally selective, we strive to find the right people who exhibit some common characteristics
Growth: We are truly invested in people – providing individual growth plans and investing in each employee’s goals provides the opportunity to grow, try new things and challenges them to reach new levels both personally and professionally.
Accountability: Every individual employee reads a book called QBQ, which is about owning your role to the fullest and avoiding passing blame when things don’t go as planned. Honestly, our team really lives up to this value. Everyone is extremely hardworking, everyone takes pride in their role, nobody wants to let their team down and nobody passes blame. It is a uniquely refreshing environment to work in and makes our team efficient, easy to work with and highly productive.
Making an Impact: Every day I witness our teams taking action and making a positive impact on our client’s businesses and on each other. There is a true sense of team work . Whether it is coworkers collaborating on a tough challenge, tactical teams implementing a complex large-scale project or our helpdesk fixing something rather simple that makes life and business easier for a client, it all comes back to our team being exceptionally great to work with both internally and externally.
