“It’s not the destination, it’s the journey.”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
It’s a quote we’ve all heard and a sentiment we are all reminded of daily.
Last week THD’s journey took an exciting new turn. Thanks to the continued support of our amazing clients, we outgrew our previous home and moved into a beautiful new space in historic Lincoln, MA.
Our bright, healthier new home is the culmination of a year’s worth of work. We kicked off with a workplace survey to better understand the needs of our people as well as a commute analysis that outlined our best geographic options (if you live or have lived in this part of the world, you know just how important that analysis is!). Once complete, we engaged architects, interior designers, furniture suppliers, and technology experts to develop a workplace that would meet our needs and align with our culture of openness, transparency, teamwork, and collaboration.
The result is an environment with tremendous natural light, open areas for impromptu collaboration inside and out, standing desks, an on-site fitness center to keep us healthy, and better technology to keep us all seamlessly connected.
Change and evolution are the defining themes of this part of our journey.
Just as the journeys, needs, and wants of the donors we work together to engage are evolving, so, too, are the needs of our clients and the teams we’ve built to support them.
So, it’s appropriate that we drive through the battlefields of Lexington and Concord each day on our way in. Our industry is going through a period of dramatic change, and our individual journeys into the office are reminders of how important change (and a little revolution) can be to growth as well as discovering new and better ways of doing things.
And now, as our journey continues, we can’t wait to have you in for a visit to see where we can all go together.
P.S. That quote from Emerson is incredibly appropriate, as our conference rooms have all been named for famous literary figures from the area – Emerson being one of them.
