Thinking About Taking your Company Virtual? Decision Toolbox CEO Says Aim for the Clouds

Irvine, Calif. –   “Though 2012 has just begun, smart business leaders are already looking ahead, planning where their organizations will need to be in 2015. More and more companies are realizing the benefits of transitioning to a virtual model and in a few years virtual work environments will be the norm” says Kim Shepherd, CEO of Decision Toolbox, a nationwide provider of project based hiring and on-demand Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO).

“Decision Toolbox has been a 100% virtual workplace since 2003”, explains Shepherd. “Being pioneers in this space, we have learned firsthand that there is much more to a virtual workplace than having employees work from home offices. Thus, we’ve adopted the term ‘cloud culture’ to describe our own unique virtual environment.”

According to Shepherd, here are the top business reasons for transitioning to the cloud:

–    Cost Savings – rather than paying for sticks and bricks, “cloud culture” companies can invest in the best people, tools and technology for business success.

–    Quality – in a cloud culture company, there is no where for under-performers to hide and there are no appearances to create distraction. It’s all about the numbers.

–    Scalability – “cloud culture” organizations can grow quickly and turn on a dime — as more talent is added, there is no need for more office space, furniture, etc.

“Remember, to be successful in the cloud, you must act as though you have bricks and mortar and maintain the same cornerstones that are essential for success in a traditional workplace – culture, performance, appreciation, continuous improvement – and more,” concludes Shepherd.
