100 Employees And Counting!By Judi Hess
This past summer, I posted about our move to our brand new offices in Vancouver. And would you believe it, by the time we moved in May, we were already on the lookout for additional space. With our revised growth projections we knew it would get tight pretty quickly, but what we didn’t realize is that it would happen so fast!
Our main office is now close to capacity and the additional space we found upstairs will open in the new year. We affectionately call it “The Loft” as it’s on the top floor of the building we’re in and boasts pretty great views and even its own patio!
But the really exciting part is that this is necessary because we have officially hired our 100th employee, a real milestone for a company that was only at about 25 when I joined six years ago and only 55 a year ago! When you think that in 2014 we had 40 employees and in the last two years we’ve added 60, 43 of them in 2016 alone! And we’re not done yet!
This rate of growth is pretty staggering and makes it all the more critical that we don’t lose the culture we’ve all worked so hard to build. You can read more about how important our culture is to Copperleaf in a post I wrote last year.
It’s also a testament to the evolving markets we serve. Organizations managing critical infrastructure are realizing how important it is to meet industry standards such as ISO 55000 and are clamouring for more and more sophisticated solutions to help them align with best practices. They’re realizing how much a decision analytics solution like Copperleaf C55 can help them optimize their investment portfolios to make the highest value decisions and deliver concrete results. And the Copperleaf team is here, and growing, to help them achieve these goals!
