The IT Industry in the Midwest has a 40% turnover rate, but GadellNet proudly boasted an 8% turnover rate (both voluntary and involuntary) across both its offices in 2017.  The key to their cultural success was the formulation of a very clear set of values that serve as the backbone for nearly every management decision – recruiting, interviewing, performance management. communication, strategic prioritization and compensation.   

These values have become more than just words on a wall, but a way of thinking and acting in the company – allowing for individual contributions and diversity of ideas – but, inspired by a common ethos.  They have been active users of TINYpulse for over 4 years.
