An Insider's view of VelocityEHS

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Electric. Recognition for good work in this office is contagious and once the ball starts rolling you can’t stop it. Everyone wants to see each other succeed. And if you need to decompress after a hectic day you can either go to the game room with your friends or head to the roof to enjoy the Chicago summer.

What does your typical day look like?

My typical day involves a mix of internal meetings, client calls, and a lot of emails! On the Customer Success team, we aim to add value and deliver outcomes for our clients, so there is always a new problem to solve. I strategize and collaborate with teams across the organization to ensure we all work together for the success of our clients.

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

While most people have an open door policy, I take it a step further and also make sure I know EVERY sales person and their name. And every year I set aside August to be my month to do 30 minute 1:1s with anyone on the sales team that wants to meet.
