Leveraging success in the creation, automation, and analysis of data, our Business & Intelligence (BS&I) practice is now proudly providing technical leadership support to the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) aircraft maintenance program. Through the project, RedCloud is building technical capabilities to improve fleet readiness of two different helicopter fleets flown by the U.S. Marine Corps initially, with the plan to expand across additional areas in the future.
You might remember Emma, our recipient of the 4th Annual RedCloud Consulting/Dave “Hendu” Henderson Educational Scholarship in 2021. We award one hardworking and well-deserving student with this scholarship each year alongside Toys for Kids Founder and friend of RedCloud, Rick Rizzs. To read about the fall scholarship surprise at Emma’s high school, the full article in the Yakima Herald is here.
Wow, what a year! We can’t believe we’re already wrapping up 2021 and looking toward all of our 2022 plans that are taking shape. A lot happened at RedCloud despite another year of uncertain and uncharted waters in the world around us. As we are thankful for our collective success in 2021, we are proud to have stayed dedicated to our community - particularly as we acknowledge the pandemic continues to have a rippling effect in our local communities.
Back to school? We can’t believe it either! Those three words mark the end of summer and the kickoff to a new season of learning (our favorite!). As we look forward to rounding out the year and starting 2022 with momentum, we continue our dedication to supporting important organizations in our community with ongoing support to Solid Ground’s Broadview Shelter & Transitional Housing.
We’re sharing exciting news on the RedCloud blog today! With our announcement in June that the Puget Sound Business Journal once again listed us on their annual Washington's Best Workplaces, we’re thrilled to have recently learned that we were ranked the #12 best workplace for large companies in the state, and the highest among large consulting firms.
As you may have already heard, this year a few of our team members embarked on an exciting community project in partnership with The UW Consulting and Business Development Center (CBDC). CBDC is no stranger to RedCloud, with ongoing support in years past as part of our ongoing Community program. With an exciting opportunity to press on in 2021, we were so excited to serve as mentors for the Business Management Consulting Program - all via zoom in true remote-workfashion.
Believe it or not, July marks the time for our annual team gathering. Last week, our team made their way to a familiar spot - our office’s building plaza patio area for some summer sunshine and eats (a great way to still maintain distance in the fresh, open air!). We hold ourselves accountable to a yearly gathering centered around relaxed fun for more than just the fun of it. Joining together as a team aside from the typical work jargon unlocks a new level of connection with each other. Learning about what else goes on in our lives gives us the ability to understand and maybe even spark new ideas for our work day. A big thanks to all of those that were able to join us - and to those who weren’t able to, we missed you dearly!
Continuing on with our full year of support to Solid Ground’s Broadview Shelter & Transitional Housing, another exciting day of giving back is in the books. Together with our team, we’re constantly brainstorming ways to help the residents at Broadview. The shelter houses families - mainly mothers and their children - providing a safe haven at a secure location in Seattle if they are experiencing homelessness or need to flee from domestic abuse.
We’re excited to hear from Puget Sound Business Journal that once again we’ve been listed as on their annual Washington's Best Workplaces roundup of the top 100 businesses for employee satisfaction. It’s a true honor to hear that even given the challenging times of the last year, our employees are proud to call RedCloud home. With a dedication to transparency - and a constant commitment to it during our busiest seasons - we’re thrilled to see that our employee survey results were overwhelmingly positive.
Congratulations, Rick! Toys for Kids Founder and dear friend of RedCloud, Rick Rizzs was recently named the 425 Citizen of the Year, a well deserved honor! All of us at RedCloud send a HUGE round of applause for all he’s done to support children in our community and specifically the partnership and opportunity he’s afforded to us to make an impact by his side.
