New Work employer

Our new corporate identity and logo go live. Because the fingerprint we've grown fond of unfortunately doesn't "work" well on cell phones, we're replacing it with a simpler logo that also expresses the evolution of our service portfolio: We bridge the gap between data (squares) and people (circles) in organizations.
Fourth growth stage
We are looking for three more colleagues to meet the demand. Sarah Weyhenmeyer receives power of attorney.
