We transformed a blah, gray, Dilbert-world cubicle-land into a bright, collaborative, open, energizing space. Employees were central to the success of this project. Prior to selling Kepware to PTC for $100M, Corky Ellis, the founder and then chairman of Kepware shared, “Don’t people get how important the workplace environment is? If, by creating a place that people want to work in every day, I am able to retain just two engineers, that pays for itself.” Corky also shared, “You insisted on 100% employee engagement from the beginning of the project, challenged our conservative tendencies and encouraged us to think differently. You were absolutely right.”
