Q2 – 2013 – It’s been a while since this blog has been updated with what’s going on at Sayers Tech, but that doesn’t mean there hasn’t been a lot going on… quite the contrary. There has been so much going on that it has been difficult to find the time to update this blog for those that follow our adventures.
Last year (2012) finished quite some time ago and it was one heck of a year for all of us. Our primary business, VoIP Supply, continued to grow and outpace the industry. In addition to our company growing at the top and bottom of our financials, we have added a few new people to the company, added some new solutions to our catalog and celebrated many achievements. Late in 2012, VoIP Supply was named as the first certified B-Corporation in Western New York. This certification was a focal point in 2012 and really aligned the people within our organization around our company’s purpose – Do well, do good, suck less!
VoIP Supply was also named as one of WNY’s Best Places to Work, one of the 15 Most Admired Companies in WNY and nominated as one of WNY’s Most Ethical Businesses. Our Sustainabiliteam was formed in 2012 as part of our b-corp certification process and helped engage the company and our people in a wide variety of community activities and expanded our participation in the many charities and organizations we had already been working with.
Growing by nearly 20% for each of the past few years, the company has found itself once again on the Fast Track 50 (fastest growing companies in WNY) as well as back on the Inc. 5000 (fastest growing companies in America). This will the fourth time we have shared a spot on each of these lists with our fellow fast growing companies.
For those that are also running small businesses and entrepreneurial adventures, one of the biggest influences on our company over the past 18 months has been our integration of many ideas put forth in a book titled “The Rockefeller Habits”. I’d most certainly encourage any business leader to take the short time required to read the book and then spend the time to analyze which of those ideas/habits would add value to your unique organization.
Our future is bright and we have a few new projects in the works to grow the Sayers Technology Holdings family and improve the operational efficiency, profitability and overall success of our existing businesses. Again, we must do well, so that we are empowered to do good. While we are at it, it helps if we suck less each day.
Thank you for following along with our progress and updates. Have a wonderful summer!
