Being human means treating our clients like human beings, whose culture is to be explored with curiosity and improved to meet their goals.
The desire to improve a company’s culture is driven by our human needs. Aligning a culture to meet those needs has been proven to improve a company’s overall performance. However, identifying where to get started and, specifically which areas in a business need improvement, requires experienced, curious professionals who are expert at revealing those deep human needs and manifesting transformational solutions.
Bigwidesky are those professionals, and Humaneers explores the culture of the curious minds that make businesses more human
On this latest episode, Content Strategist Dan Pearce and Chief Operating Officer Eric Pratum are joined by Digital Marketing Manager Edie Salter to discuss the unique and complicated nature of company culture and its connection to marketing. She highlights the latest developments of digital marketing, as well as the importance of keeping a “learner’s mind” and asking the right questions.
Work is not your life, and while you may have a variety of chapters that make up your professional career, what you bring to the table is more important than the table itself. Bigwidesky’s Vice President of Strategy Stacy Taubman recognizes that and knows the importance of applying her talents and experiences to the solutions that she provides clients.
As one of the newer members of the company, Stacy joins Bigwidesky Content Strategist Dan Pearce and Chief Operating Officer Eric Pratum on this episode of Humaneers to discuss her background and how those experiences help shape the communities that she wishes to rebuild for clients and their audiences. She identifies ways that entrepreneurs advocate for their vision, figure out their needs, and execute their plan.
Problem-solving is not linear. It is an examination of an issue through a lens developed by the professional and personal experiences of others over time and is subject to different interpretations based on the experiences of those solving the problem with you.
Humaneers consistently is looking to explore the lenses of members of our team at Bigwidesky and dive into their experiences that shape them as professionals, who look to solve the problems of their clients on a daily basis.
This episode, hosted by Dan Pearce, we are joined by Bigwidesky Vice President, Chief Operating Officer, and new Humaneers co-host Eric Pratum, as we discuss how we, at Bigwidesky, utilize our experiences, in order to provide solutions to our clients, sometimes addressing problems that they did not even know that they had.
The perfect human connection may not exist, but that does not stop us from trying to achieve it. We continue to pursue connections, as imperfect as they may be, and create a web of lasting relationships ready to lift us and shape us to be the people we were born to be.
Humaneers understands the importance of pursuing those connections. It is eager to grab a cup of coffee and chat about important and unimportant topics alike until we can find the commonality of our experiences. This commonality is what we’ve experienced here at Bigwidesky.
Together, we discuss the importance of creating those connections, as well as her experiences in the nonprofit sector and what led her to join Bigwidesky.
Maintaining a meaningful dialogue — even with yourself — is like walking. You put one foot in front of the other, and soon, you are heading out the door and into the world. You establish your thoughts. Your path crosses with other. You allow the world around you to know and shape who you are.
Humaneers is curious about that being you carry out into the world. It is curious because it is borne out of the animating mission of Bigwidesky, to make business more human, or, if you would be so bold, to humaneer.
The show, hosted by Dan Pearce, is a light-hearted look at those in and around the orbit of Bigwidesky, exploring their experiences, insights, and who they are as people.
The show was originally hosted by Jeremy Nulik as an internal dialogue exclusively for the people who are full-time at Bigwidesky. With this revised concept, we have kept the intention the same, but we are extending the guest list and the listenership to people who believe in the mission and vision of Bigwidesky.
On this “relaunch” episode of Humaneers, Dan and Jeremy highlight their expectations of the show and their shared pursuits. They break down some of their experiences and start the dialogue to come with future episodes.
