10: Why It’s Not OK for Your Employees to Love Their Life but Hate Their Job with Greg Malpass

When Greg Malpass founded Traction on Demand, his mission was simple: Help people find “more time to play.” In his experience, there was a clear delineation between work and play. The “work/life balance” discussion was everywhere. Then the discussion evolved. We all thought technology would give us more time back. But technology has only sped things up and allowed us to deliver more. Now, companies are being evaluated based on how enjoyable of an experience they’re creating for their employees—and for good reason. In this final episode of season 1 of Thinking Out Cloud, Greg explain how amplifying the voice of his team members—and giving them a real say in the future of the business—has obliterated the need for work/life balance in his company and replaced it with “work/life harmony.”

9: Build or Buy Software? The Answer Is… Both w/ Reid Holzworth and Aaron Zuccolin

Your company’s growing, and you need additional software. Do you build, or do you buy? Should you buy tech that fits some or most of your needs, or should you build a fully customized platform? It’s an age old question. The answer? Ask Reid Holzworth. He did both, and he gives us an exploratory answer behind his revolutionary insurtech, called TechCanary, built on the Salesforce platform. We invited Reid on our Thinking Out Cloud podcast to give us his insights on how he built a customized solution for his industry, and why he chose Salesforce to get him there. This episode is a double-whammy: It also features special guest Aaron Zuccolin, VP of Industry Solutions here at Traction on Demand.
