Monday, June 30th, 2014 marked the launch of an internal project called #FXBuilds. This project, entirely funded by employee successes, will donate $25,000 to Pencils of Promise to build a school for about 90 children in rural Guatemala.
Not only will the donation cover the building of the school, but it will also provide salaries for the teaching staff. It will also provide e-readers, smartphones, literacy kits, general school supplies, desks, and building maintenance for a total of 20 years!
Earlier this month, the WebFX team packed up our office in Carlisle, Pennsylvania to prepare for a really big move.
In late 2007, we moved into the TechCelerator (formerly the Murata Business Center); you can see some photos from the old office space here. We would not be where we are today without the awesome support we received at this incubator, and the support of the Harrisburg Regional Chamber & CREDC and Ben Franklin Technology Partners who run the program. Due to our rapid company growth, we eventually ran out of room in the TechCelerator. So last summer, we made the decision to renovate a historic mansion in nearby Harrisburg to use as the new home for WebFX!
Today millions of Americans will celebrate Thanksgiving with a nicely browned turkey, mounds of mashed potatoes and finish it off with a slice of pumpkin pie! As you enjoy this wonderful holiday, we think it’s worth taking a few minutes to reflect on what you are truly thankful for in your life.
Here at WebFX we did just that! Have a look at our “I’m thankful wall” and what a few of our employees are thankful for this year!
It is hard to believe but another year is almost in the books. One of my favorite parts of the year’s end is reading all of the great zeitgeist and ‘Best of’ posts that get published this time of the year. Twitter’s Year in Review and Google’s Zeitgiest were particualrly fascinating to look at.
I figured we’d take a look back on 2010 for WebFX too. Here’s a peek at our top posts from a few different metrics:
We’re still putting some finishing touches together, but we couldn’t wait any longer to show you guys some photos of our new office space. We’ve spent the past couple of months scrubbing, painting, building and cleaning and we’re pretty proud of the space we’ve created.
The new office has two main sections: a ‘phone room’ for our project managers, SEO specialists and other members of our team who are on the phone frequently and a more open ‘stage’ area for the rest of our staff including designers and programmers. We’ve also got plenty of whiteboards, couches and tables for collaboration.
