31 Dec Tis the Season: Celebrating Our Team and Community
The end of any calendar year brings a natural opportunity to reflect on the past year’s accomplishments, hurdles overcome, and what’s next. For RedCloud we’ve enjoyed another fast and furious ride upwards, growing our firm both in terms of size (clients and consultants), but more importantly to us across new verticals of cyber security, business intelligence and IoT to meet the most pressing needs of today’s market. All the while we’re proud to have stayed true to RedCloud’s foundation of Integrity and Transparency, ensuring both our customers and our team members know exactly what’s at stake and what to expect from RedCloud.
But for us, this time of year is about so much more than celebrating the firm’s success….but rather it is about recognizing what really drives us to achieve more and how it’s all possible. At RedCloud we believe this comes down to two important pieces of our puzzle: our Team and our Community. Both of these groups are critical in the work we do, and the reason we get out of bed in the morning. To that end, in the recent weeks we’ve been able to bring people together across various events and activities to celebrate our Team and Community:
- Toys for Kids Scholarship & Gifts: Our ongoing partnership with the Seattle-based charity Toys for Kids has provided multiple opportunities to support and celebrate our community. Deeply aligned with RedCloud’s prolonged support to local organizations that focus on the physical, cognitive, and emotional development of young people, this season we presented the first annual 1st Annual Dave “Hendu” Henderson Educational Scholarship Presented by RedCloud Consulting to a well deserving young woman heading to college next year. As part of the celebration our team attended Toys For Kids annual fundraising gala, and our team volunteered for their annual Children’s Holiday Party which provided 500 toys for kids this holiday season. The synergies between RedCloud and Toys For Kids continue to evolve and we’re excited to build on this year’s actions to support more and more children in the future.
- Annual RedCloud Holiday Party: For the second year in a row we’ve doubled down on our magnificent people by hosting the firm’s holiday party under a Casino Night theme. Our consultants, internal business team, and their guests donned their best 007 garb and poker faces for a fun evening of camaraderie, laughs, and friendly bluffing. This is a tradition we’ll continue until it breaks the house bank!
- Getting Active at the Turkey Trot: Kicking off the 2018 holiday season, members of the RedCloud team bundled up in their warmest lycra, gloves and beanies to support Hopelink’s mission to end poverty in our region at this year’s Turkey Trot 5K. We have a wide range of athletes on our team, so some were at the front of the pack, others look the slow and steady approach, but regardless the impact was felt and good times were had by all.
Looking forward to 2019, we’re sure to identify more opportunities to celebrate our people and support our community, staying true to our beliefs and the long term impact we can have on everyone in our growing RedCloud community. We can’t wait to see what’s ahead!
