I am grateful this thanksgiving for being better than I deserve.

After working as a contractor for a year, I have learned what an amazing place Orgwide is.  I couldn’t be happier finding a new home and working with such dedicated people. Life is good!

Robin Taylor

I am thankful for my all-grown-up, college freshman baby brother and my four crazy, yet adorable furry children.

Stephanie Hartigan
Social Media and Survey Analyst


I am very thankful that God continues to bless my family. Not just the Colvin family but my Orgwide family as well. I am also thankful that I was “born in the USA” where you can start with little or nothing and with hard work provide a good life for yourself and your family as well as give back to the community and make a positive impact on others.

Ed Colvin
Director, Facilitator Services


I am thankful for the opportunity to work in a job that I enjoy, with people that I respect and (bonus!) even really like! I am also thankful to live in a country where we are allowed to have a voice, and that strives to provide freedom and equality for all.

Ashley W. Sikora

I am thankful this Thanksgiving for my loving family, my crazy cats, my flexible schedule, and healthy habits that are about to be thrown out the window for the holidays!

I am thankful this Thanksgiving for all the many freedoms we enjoy in America and to family, friends, a talented group of team mates at Orgwide who make it look easy (even though it always isn't) and to our valued customers for allowing us to gain their trust and confidence as we partner together.

I'm thankful for an abundance of companies that need messages communicated to their employees, and for clients who give Orgwide an opportunity to meet their business needs by creating custom learning solutions. I'm also thankful for prospects who do not hang up on me mid-sentence when I call to let them know about the fascinating, award-winning work we do here at Orgwide Lastly, I'm thankful for a comfortable chair to sit in all day long and chocolate-flavored coffee to sip on (big grin).

Rick Bovay

I am thankful for Drs. Boston and Cantor of St. Louis Children's Hospital. They (and their team) literally saved my grandson's life. I am also thankful for my Orgwide Services partner, Jim Hartigan. He (and the entire team) joyfully demonstrate what's possible, even in a difficult economy. I am particularly thankful for my wife, Robin. Without her support, nothing in my world works.

Bob Taylor

I am thankful for my husband, two giggly girls and a loveable yellow lab and for working with a creative team who values our clients, each other, innovation and dogs.

I am thankful this Thanksgiving for my family – wonderful, loving, supportive husband and two amazing, beautiful girls–my greatest gifts in life; my sister, who is my best friend and rock throughout all life's challenges; a career that gives me purpose, challenges me, and teaches me something every day. And above all, I'm thankful for Christ, who strengthens me and allows me to persevere.

I am thankful this Thanksgiving for having a strong team of Orgwide designers and developers that make me look good in my introductions to new and interested training and learning prospects. Also, having just returned from a wonderful holiday week in Mexico with family and friends, but seeing the poverty and chaos of people's living conditions, I am thankful this Thanksgiving for being an American and having the blessings of abundance, comfort and beauty.

Ken Ball

I'm thankful for being surrounded by the most bodaciously supportive and loving family and friends a guy could ever ask for and a clean bill of health. Oh, and Loud music!
