Trying to better people through work

| February 9th, 2007 | ,

At Pelago we have a lot of idealism about work and life. We are striving to be a small business that stays small (hopefully no more than 10 people – right now we’re at 7) and puts our priorities in proper order. This is a very difficult task indeed with how much we all work. Since we do work so much and many of us spend more time with our co-workers than our families we are trying to create a culture that allows people to be themselves, be honest, have fun and flourish. We want a small knit team that is driven by creating quality in what we do for our clients and for one another.

We started this new “social responsibility” category to make random posts about what we see as important. Going Green and being socially responsibility are all the rage these days, but what does that mean in our day to day life as a small business? How do these thing trickle into the day to day without being cliche? We hope to challenge ourselves to do our best on this front and we’ll share our journey.
