I hope everyone had a great holiday season and had plenty of time to unwind with family and friends. This time of year can be so hectic with lots of family outings, holiday traditions, and of course deadlines at work before January 1 hits, so it’s important to take advantage of some down time when it arises.
With all of that said, as 2019 comes to an end, we wanted to share some great things that our team accomplished together over this past year.
1. Another year of continued record growth
First and foremost, we continued on our yearly trajectory of welcoming over 80+ new clients onboard and close to 90 new projects total in 2019.
As a small, but growing team of 10, this is a large undertaking which takes lots of daily focus, team effort, determination and drive from every person on our crew in order to hit our client’s deadlines and goals. Out of our new clients that chose Thrive this year, they range all across the board from small businesses, to larger retailers, municipalities and more.
Regardless of the size of client, our dedication to providing unmatched quality, support and service never wavers, as we continue to grow Thrive into a statewide and nationwide leading web development company.
2. Our team grew and welcomed some new faces
As our clientele grows, so does the support capacity needed in order for us to carry on our reputation. Back in October, we lost Connor, our updates guy, as he chose to travel the world and experience life outside of Boise. In exchange, we welcomed on Chris and Ryan, both junior developers who were hired to handle our website updates and WordPress security for our clients. They are doing a phenomenal job just a few short months in, and we’re beyond excited for our new potential now with them part of the team.
3. We cracked the “150 mark” of 5-star reviews on Google
We all know how much reviews matter to both customers and business owners, and receiving so many honest reviews and testimonials from clients willing to contribute their feedback is beyond humbling.
4. Creative Good Auction was a success
This was our 4th consecutive year helping organize an event to help raise money towards ending homelessness in Boise. This year, the recipient was CATCH, Inc., and with a group of dedicated creatives and sponsors, we helped raise $10k and the event was a success.
5. We FINALLY initiated quarterly team building events
We had a great time getting out of the office every few months to catch a breather and do some team bonding! A few outings included a training course at Forward Movement Training Center, axe throwing at Base Camp Pong, Bocce Ball, seeing the Joker and Star Wars movie.
Next year will see more of the same with some fun ideas lined up, as 2020 is Thrive’s officially 10-year anniversary!
All in all, 2019 was a great year for Thrive, and we are beyond grateful to our clients year after year for putting their trust in us. 2020 marks our 10-year anniversary, which means I’m sure we’ll dream up something special to celebrate that milestone.
We hope the coming year brings you into deep focus, determination, great health, happiness and much success to follow.
Cheers to a great 2020!
- Team Thrive
