As Valentine’s Day approaches, the desire for new and rekindled connections can be found in the air… And we don’t just mean romantically. In any industry, growth starts with finding the right connections and transforming them into robust opportunities.  

At Edgewater, we value the relationships we’ve built with all our clients, partners, and our employees. Undoubtedly, it’s been one of our major keys to success as we recently hit a major milestone – our 20th anniversary. How did we build and nurture these relationships? Uncover our advice below: 

Start with a Strong Foundation from Day One 

As with any relationship, a solid foundation helps keep things steady when times get tough. By being transparent and setting clear expectations with our partners and clients from the beginning, we’ve been able to foster positive, mission-driven outcomes. Our open and honest communication style has led us to complete tremendous projects and achieve excellence in our industry. 

Sharing Knowledge for Team Success 

Relationships are a two-way street, and that’s how we view sharing information. By effectively communicating our strengths with our partners, clients, and employees, we know when to step up and share our expertise, and when to step back and let someone else take the lead. By surrounding ourselves with growth-oriented partners and team members, we can expand our skillset and dial in on development areas. These relationships allow us an open opportunity to present ideas, receive feedback and see challenges and solutions from another perspective. 

How to Turn Connections into Opportunities  

It all boils down to being a good partner and colleague. Our history of excellence began with our skillset, but grew once it became clear that we deliver what we promise. From day-to-day tasks to high-priority projects, follow-through and accountability are essential. Our core values of teamwork, respect, integrity, assurance, and results allow us to continue to build trust with our clients, partners, and employees, which leads to new opportunities. 

We’re always seeking new connections, so reach out to us next time you’re looking for a qualified partner. In the meantime, Happy Valentine’s Day, and happy connecting!

Our People…Your Edge

We didn’t create our outstanding team by accident.

Our advantage comes from a consistent focus on attracting highly talented and dedicated people – and a commitment to honoring and empowering them so that they stay. With meaningful work and industry-leading training, compensation, and benefits, Edgewater careers are enviable so that our people are our edge.

They’ve gone above and beyond my expectations of a company.  They recognize me as a valuable person, not just an employee.  They recognize and reward people for outstanding performance, and let us know we’re an important part of the team by sending personal notes on birthdays and anniversaries.
