Employees explained that “each employee has a career manager and creates a career development plan updated annually to encourage continuous growth,” and “they meet with us regularly to understand our goals and align it with company needs and opportunities.”
Leadership has been intentional about communicating that the prosperity of the company is dependent upon the prosperity of its employees. “Everyone is important,” stated an employee emphatically, while another noted, “The potential for growth is tremendous and they foster an environment of open communication and encouragement.”
“While the clients’ needs are always addressed, they work to find ways to continue encouraging professional growth for the individual consultants,” said a team member, and “trainings are regularly provided.”
The same respectful nature in the break room is reflected in Logic20/20’s approach to professional development. “They want to mentor and provide you with the knowledge you need so you can feel confident and successful,” elaborated one employee.
The company’s personalized, genuine investment in their employees is clear, “Logic values your career aspirations and they make it a point to understand what you want to be, where you want to go and then create a plan of how to get there. Inclusiveness, encouragement, and career development are some of the many aspects that have pushed me to be more, learn more, and enjoy the space I work - more.”
Logic20/20 isn’t shy about acknowledging their most important asset, their people. “Recruiting does a fantastic job of hiring individuals who have a strong sense of integrity and teamwork. Peers and management care deeply about the happiness and satisfaction individuals have in their work and make a conscious effort to ensure people are on projects that interest and challenge them.”
A seasoned employee noted, “After several years of working here, I can confidently say it's really a place where you can ask anyone for help or insight on a project and they would happily do the best they can to help you succeed or point you in the right direction.” The sense of support is pervasive, and in no way reserved for the experienced, “As a new employee, I am still learning the ins and outs of the company, but the integrity alone has been very apparent in the short time I have been here.”
“I love how flexible, open, and honest everyone is. We are continuously encouraged to grow professionally and speak candidly with co-workers,” explained one employee. This genuine gratitude coworkers feel for one another is undeniable, as is the collective understanding that inspiration and constant growth make for a joyful, healthy workplace environment. Another earnest employee stated, “I have never felt more comfortable and happy within a company I work for. They truly care about their employees and what they need and want, to keep them happy.”
While the “relentless attention to the intersection of business and technology” might be the daily professional focus, it’s the emotional support from colleagues that team members value. “Logic employees see more in me than I think I see in myself. They truly make me feel valued and that I am capable of so much more.”
