A typical day inside Proof Management's offices reveals the real secret to the interactive marketing firm's success - teamwork. As the managers note, their efforts to cultivate a collaborative environment have been productive.

“When new associates enter our doors, the first thing they learn is that this is a team-based culture,” stated Lindsay, Proof Management’s director of operations. “We are a collaborative group who enjoys working and playing together.”

Lindsay noted that the reason Proof Management’s leaders are adamant about teamwork stems from the positive impact it has on overall company productivity. “There are so many ways in which we benefit by enhancing our team,” she said. “First, you have diverse ideas that are readily shared. It’s wonderful to see how one concept can build and grow as each person adds a new dimension. Innovation is a collaborative process as each associate sees things from a difference perspective.”

“The support our team members show each other is helpful to our overall goals as well,” Lindsay added. “They really encourage each other to reach individual and team objectives. We have some friendly competition, but every associate knows this isn’t a one-person operation. They recognize that leadership and success means lifting each other.”

Lindsay shared that cultivating a team-based environment like the one Proof Management enjoys requires continual effort. “Communication is key,” she said. “We keep our team apprised of our company goals, as well as how they are progressing individually and as a group. If your team members know what is expected of them, they’ll work together to achieve their goals.”

“We regularly incorporate group activities that allow us to relax and bond,” Lindsay added. “This could be anything from a retreat to a dinner or bowling night, or even volunteering together for a great cause. The secret is not to force the relationship. Instead, we provide a foundation on which team members can come to trust and appreciate each other’s contributions. If you have a company which is solely focused on individual accomplishments, your associates will think only of their own success. Over time, you might have a few stars, but you’ll have poor morale. We’d rather have an environment in which the belief is that we all can make it.”

“There’s no doubt, I’m proud of this team,” Lindsay concluded. “While we may have provided the tools to succeed, they’ve provided the heart and soul to make it happen.”
