Pride, optimism, enthusiasm, excitement and confidence filled the air as Epiphany Management Group gathered together to celebrate 10 years of success. Statistically, we have beat the odds-with flying colors-as a large majority of small businesses do not make it to this 10-year mark. So, on December 15, 2016, we gathered together to celebrate our accomplishments that led to this point.
In 2007, Epiphany was started with the goal of transforming K-12 education through partnerships with progressive school leaders and industry innovators. 10 years later, we’re doing just that and more. In the past 10 years we’ve leapt outside our comfort zone, venturing beyond K-12 schools and expanding our business immensely.
“I’m excited about our future together and know that though it won’t be easy, nothing in life that is worth anything is,” said Doug Jones, Chief Operating Officer as he spoke to the Epiphany team that night. “Together, we will continue to build off the tremendous success from the past 10 years.”
The celebration of success took place at The Galaxy in Wadsworth, Ohio where employees and their families came together for a night filled with great food, enough candy to last them months, a raffle and a game show . No one knew what to expect of the night, as staff members involved in planning made sure to keep most facets of the night a surprise for their coworkers.
“We recognize the hard work that our employees put in everyday and because of that, we like to give them recognition,” said Kelly Blankenship, Regional Coordinator.
Kelly was a huge part of bringing everyone together for this event. With members of our team from all over the state, and even some from Florida, bringing everyone together was a challenge. This challenge, however, was most rewarding. Bringing together all regions of Epiphany was a groundbreaking experience that gave coworkers the opportunity to come together with counterparts who they don’t see on a day-to-day basis and allowing us to share ideas to expand business. Realizing how successful this was generated tremendous goals for future employee engagement.
“I’m filled with overwhelming optimism at our future together,” said Doug.
Not only are we celebrating our own success, but the success that we have brought to the schools that have partnered with us in the past 10 years. We have helped dozens of schools lower their overall costs for technology and improve their quality of 21st century learning.
