Spring brings shorts, renewed collaboration to ETC
As a relative ETC newbie (six months in), two things have stood out to me around the building since spring finally sprung in Middleton:
1) ETC's casual work environment - a novel concept for this business casual careerist - means the building is now filled with people in flip flops, shorts and T's,
2) there seems to be a heightened sense of collaboration in the air. Like the winter weather keeps neighbors quarantined from each other in their homes, in January and February, it was as if the cold weather had been keeping the people here a little more tied to their desks than normal. But with 70-degree days popping up here and there, the activity level is noticeably higher and the amount of inter-workspace discussion about projects has the office running at a nice hum. It's motivating, productive, and just plain fun.
Great to be at a place with so much going on - and so much shared energy to get it all done the best way we can.
