An Insider's view of Relativity

How does your team reward individual success?

Rewarding success is one of my favorite parts of my role. Formally through annual bonus plans, thank you notes in our HR system and of course through promotions. I also like to submit nominations to be recognized at company meetings and spotlights in department newsletters. We move fast at Relativity it’s nice to slow down and just say thanks!

Jessica

Operations Manager, Customer Success and Support

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

On the Certification team, I develop exams and study content for our end users. To ensure that our exams are valid, I work with almost every team embracing their expertise and industry knowledge into the development process. It takes continuous interdepartmental collaboration to keep exam content accurate as the Relativity platform evolves.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

As an Application Support Specialist, I have increased my technical knowledge in SQL database management, Network Administration, and Server Infrastructure. Prior to coming to Relativity, I had zero knowledge of e-Discovery, and now provide On-site training to our clients teaching them about the various e-Discovery tools Relativity has to offer.

Our annual user conference, Relativity Fest, is such a tremendous opportunity to get one on one face time with our partners. Fest draws 2,000 platform users and practitioners from all different facets of the industry and being able to connect with them and hear their stories is extremely powerful.
