Mom made you do things as a child on a daily basis that you still do (or try to do) today: Sit up straight. Chew with your mouth closed. Look both ways before you cross the street. Use the magic word. Eat your vegetables. Brush your teeth before you go to bed. She taught us values: Honesty is the best policy. Practice makes perfect. If you don’t have something nice to say, don’t say anything at all. Sometimes, mom would have to kick it up a notch to make her point: If you keep crossing your eyes, they’ll freeze that way! Don’t make me come over there! Do you live in a barn? You just wait until your father gets home!
The lessons we learned from mom can be applied to just about any aspect of our lives, including our professional lives – more specifically, our workspace. In honor of Mother’s Day, here are three important “momisms” that can help you become more organized at work. Read More
With the holiday season in full swing, we’d like to take a moment to reflect on our good fortune this past year and the people who saw us through, cheered us on and otherwise made it all worthwhile. We’ve got so many terrific and dedicated people behind the scenes here, from our product engineers to our customer service reps, but today we’d like to take a moment to thank and share holiday wishes with the people who are the true driving force behind everything we do – you, our friends and customers.
When we started working on the relaunch of Ultimate Office less than a year ago, we knew we’d succeed… but what if we didn’t? We knew people had loved our products before… but what if they’d forgotten us? It’s been a thrilling and terrifying experience, from the excitement of seeing the first new products come into the warehouse to the frustrations of missed deadlines. But through it all, the one surprising and wonderful thing that kept us going was the amazing support of our customers. From the moment we announced the relaunch, you’ve shared our enthusiasm and echoed our passion for great organizing solutions. We’re grateful for your support and for being part of our Ultimate family. Read More
