Posted by West McDonald on Nov 27, 2018 1:15:32 PM

As I write this blog I’m doing some prep work for Print Audit’s annual Strategic Planning week. Soon, I’ll be with fellow executives at Print Audit, and we’ll be locked up in a room together for 2 days as we reflect on the year that was and plan for the year ahead.  Next to spending Christmas with my family, it’s one of my favorite things about December.

Creating Your Own Happy Meal: What McDonald’s Can Teach Us All About Great Customer Service

Posted by Lynn Strocen on Dec 6, 2017 11:28:47 AM

I was running errands a few days ago and stopped at McDonald’s for lunch. I was greeted by a very friendly young lady as I entered the restaurant. I ordered my food at one of the new self-order stations and then waited. While I was waiting for my food, I noticed a very positive vibe among the McDonald’s crew. There was laughter and light hearted chatting, they were clearly enjoying their work day. The manager, who was also laughing and chatting, noticed me and told me that I could have a seat and they would bring my food to the table. I declined her offer and told her I didn’t mind waiting at the counter. I was actually thinking to myself that I didn’t want to sit down because I was enjoying watching this very engaged team led by, what I was assuming, was a great manager. My assumption about the manager was confirmed a few minutes later when I overheard one of the McDonald's crew tell a customer, “She’s a great boss!”

The 4 Cultural Pillars All Awesome Offices Should Know About

Posted by Lynn Strocen on Sep 19, 2017 11:00:22 AM

One of the things I get asked the most often about my job is, “Do you guys ever work there?” If you scroll through our Facebook page or have the opportunity to talk to a Print Auditite, you will likely learn about the crazy (sometimes outrageous) things we do both inside and outside of the office. We’ve pranked people’s desks while they were on vacation, tried out luge for a team building event, made a tower with cardboard and then spent the better part of the day trying to collapse it, and we often finish the week with a few games of flip cup (How To Play Flip Cup). Yup, Print Audit is a fun place to work.
