Software developers C2 Group will hold a Nov. 18 open house at its new 7,185-square-foot, first-floor suite at 560 5th St. NW.
The full-service custom software, design and web applications provider was bought in April by Michael Kunzler after spending seven years as its director of client solutions.
“Some of the changes that we made have been wide and vast, but other things, like the name, have stayed the same,” Kunzler says. “It’s fair to look at us and say one of the only things that stayed the same is the name. We’ve had a lot of really solid talent that we’ve brought with us. A lot of the people are the same, the roles are the same, but we’re really widening our approach to the market.”
Kunzler says they’ve already begun to see the benefits of the new downtown open floor plan in boosting employee morale.
“It’s hard to quantify, but we’ve already noticed big benefits just in terms of increased collaboration, people from different teams that may have been historically separated are now sitting and talking amongst each other and sharing ideas,” he says.
Over the course of 2016, C2 Group expects to grow its staff about 30 percent, and says C2 Group does have “a type.”
“The people really successful here are high talent, low ego,” he says. “That’s the driving factor. They enjoy collaboration, they enjoy serving clients and they enjoy knowing the standards as well. It doesn’t mean you have to be arrogant about it.”
