The surprising secret to company cohesiveness and creativity

Friday, October 2nd, 2015

A couple of years ago, a few of us at GoEngineer started dreaming about what we could accomplish if we could gather all of our employees in the same location for a couple of days—call it networking, call it collaboration, call it an excuse to recharge. There was no doubt that the amount of talent and energy that could be shared had the potential to be game-changing for our company and customers.

Full disclosure: there had been flashes of this magic in past meetings with our technical team. We started bringing them together in one location a few years ago, thinking it’d be good to get everyone on the same page.

What we discovered was much bigger.

The impact of putting really bright, energetic, and innovative people in the same room for a few hours would actually create new and better “pages,” ones we hadn’t even considered.

Girl Scout SOCAL (1)

Our Santa Ana, CA office was buzzing with fun and giggles last week. We welcomed an Irvine Girl Scout Troop to get an insider’s look at custom design and 3D printers in action. 11 troop members, aged only 8-9yrs old, were all but shy when it came to being an engineer for the day. They excitedly listened to Jeff Jordan, Applications Engineer at GoEngineer, as he walked them through the SOLIDWORKS design steps of creating a custom Girl Scout cookie. They got their design inspiration from a favorite cookie, the Thin Mint, then added the Girl Scout logo for fun.

Playground For Big Kids

Monday, October 27th, 2014

treehouseIn our younger, more impressionable years there seemed to be a mystique surrounding the neighborhood tree house.  Whether it was in your backyard or that of your buddy’s, kids just seem to flock to that box.  Some were just a collection of repurposed refuse while others were well-planned construction masterpieces.  But they all seemed to be consistent in a couple of features; elevation and imagination.

Elevation:   I am not sure if that aspect was overcompensation for the height-challenged youth or just because it was super cool to keep something off of the ground.  Plus it gave us a reason to create stairs, rope pulls and the ever-coveted fire pole!  The elevation also gave us a great way to increase our view of the world.

Imagination:  Many kids have spent countless hours dreaming of different worlds.  Some were playing knights defending castles of medieval times.  Others piloted space ships who were exploring distant planets.  Fire trucks, stage coaches and battlegrounds were all envisioned by its occupants.  It’s amazing how those small boxes could invoke such an imaginative environment.
