Today, Erik calls out a few of Array Digital’s employees but not for what you might think, but because they are great employees. Each one has had a situation where they were moving and would be leaving the company as a result but Erik and Kevin have talked them into staying even though it means they will be working remotely.
Jason started working for Kevin back in the day and when he moved down to Orlando with his girlfriend, Kevin convinced him to work remotely because he’s a web designer…an amazing one.
We also have Katya who was one of Erik’s early hires back at 80|20. Her husband got a job in Jacksonville and even though she started as an Administrative Assistant, she’s since taken on so many other responsibilities.
Then we have Ryan who was actually hired as a remote web developer.
And finally, we have Jamal, our Project Manager, who Erik hired as a software development tester when he was a senior in college. He takes care of all the onboarding and many of the client interactions. He recently moved to Nashville and is doing everything he needs to do from there except showing up for face-to-face meetings which we have the technology to work around.
When you have a really good employee and they decide to move to a different location for whatever reason, they can continue to work for your company. Don’t let them moving physically out of the area stop you from keeping a really good employee that you want on your team. There’s so much technology that allows you to work around the fact that they are not physically in the office every day.
