This is my first Factory Week and so far, so good! I wasn’t quite sure what to expect when I walked into the Speak Easy on Monday morning. I started my day by writing our projects on the whiteboards. I was shocked and overwhelmed by the number of projects, 31 at the start of the day and 32 by the end of it! How could we possibly do so many things in one short week?
As Wednesday drew to a close, we'd made a huge dent. Projects are finishing up and we’re in the home stretch! I’m so impressed by my awesome co-workers, they are so talented! So very, very talented!
I’m team lead on a project we’ve so accurately named, Talent Audit. The concept is simple, we want to create a comprehensive list of our crew’s talents. And I do mean comprehensive. We broke down the talents into the following groups: Primary, Secondary, Dormant, Expertise and Aspirations.
Were you a hotshot BMX rider in high school? We want to know! Do you know more about dinosaurs than an average citizen? That’s useful information too. Can you knit up a cozy scarf or make a mean cup of coffee? Put it on the list. That’s something we need to know! Do you want to learn more about coding? Write it down!
Once we have our talent audit finished up, we should have a good idea of what makes 'Boxers tick, what they love to do, and where they aspire to grow. Hopefully, we will be able to tap into that knowledge to help create dream jobs, dream projects, and more awesome-ness for our clients.
