Defining OUR WHY: "After much discussion and brainstorming, we always came back to the same theme, YOU MATTER!"
It was a strategic planning kind of year for Blue Fox. Our virtual Team met up IRL in New Orleans to strategize about how we can continue to best serve our clients. (ICYMI, we provide outsourced accounting services for nonprofits and social enterprises, along with payroll processing, tax preparation, HR guidance and financial consulting.)
We learned a lot moving through this process and thought you might find some use in a peek behind the curtain... so here's how it all unfolded. We kicked off strategic planning by watching Simon Sinek's Ted Talk, Start With Why.
Inspired, we set out to define OUR WHY.
After much discussion and brainstorming, we always came back to the same theme: YOU MATTER!
Powerful, right?! And so true.
If you've ever talked to our CEO, Chantal Sheehan, or any one of our our foxtastic team members, then you already understand OUR WHY; there's no doubt we make you feel like YOU MATTER!. This theme has been at the core of Blue Fox from day one. It's only now that we recognize it's actually our explicit reason for being.
"We are building a company that lives and breathes YOU MATTER everyday. We did it instinctively and naturally because we consistently show up as caring, authentic humans serving other humans. Now that we recognize that driving force, we plan to be intentional and use it to inform our strategic initiatives."
