As the Thanksgiving holiday is almost upon us, we’re reflecting on what an awesome year 2018 has been for Human Element. From awards to great news clients, it’s been an exciting year. Here are a few memorable achievements that we are most thankful for:
Last year saw the debut of our own Human Element Next Conference, which was a huge success. So, this year the challenge was set to continue to improve on the great line up of speakers and relevant content. And I don’t think we disappointed on any of those fronts! We again chose the awesome Scarab Club as our venue, which always lends a great backdrop for inspiring creative discussions. We were also proud to have many of our talented Human Element team speaking on topics from agile business methods to brand loyalty. But I think we were most thankful for the great partners and clients who also joined us on stage to spread their knowledge and start great conversations. Now we have the harder task of planning an even better day of activities for 2019! Stay tuned!
This was our second year and we jumped almost 500 spots from last year’s position. Nice work Human Element team! Only one in three companies recognized on the Inc. 5000 make it onto the list twice. So, naturally we were ecstatic to learn that not only did Human Element Inc. 5000 list for the second time, but we jumped nearly 500 spots to #2,315, making Human Element the 2,315th fastest growing company in America (4th fastest in Ann Arbor for our local folks).
We have clients who have now been with us for many years, which is a huge honor and testament to our team – and the great work we do as an eCommerce partner and agency. This year also saw many new clients joining us, including Leon Speakers, Bowers & Wilkins, Ford Motor Company and Ecowater. We’re excited to see what great things come from these new relationships.
Of course, none of the successes that I just mentioned would be possible without our team. We have brought onboard 4 new team members this year and continue to hire across most departments. We’re also excited to introduce an intern program with three Skyline high school students, as a part of our new partnership with the Ann Arbor Public Schools, ready to take on all the interesting tasks we have in store for them. Good luck guys!
We’re so thankful for our clients, employees and partners who have been such a great support this year. Here’s to a Happy Thanksgiving and a great holiday season to all.
