Many of us at SGC love to travel. It’s a fun hobby, a great way to spend time with family and friends, and a fantastic means of expanding our horizons. But did you ever stop to think that traveling can also make you better at your job?

It’s true. As we planned out our 2020 destinations, we recognized ways traveling improves the work you do at the office. (And if …

Two Kids Reflect on Their Experiences Giving Back Through SGC

December, 13, 2019 SusanGraham | Posted in: Featured Post

Each year in December, Susan gives the children of her employees $50 apiece to use to help others. She encourages the kids to educate themselves and choose how to use this money all by themselves. They all turn in a short writeup of what they did, which Susan collects and looks back on from time to time.

This year, we invited two of those kids, Eli and Asha, to reflect

10 Under-the-Radar Ways to Give Back This Holiday Season

December, 04, 2019 SusanGraham | Posted in: Featured Post

If you know us, then you know giving back is an integral part of our identity — we even put it in our tagline. To us, it’s not just a buzz phrase. It’s a way of approaching life. We know we are fortunate, and we want to help those who aren’t as lucky.

The holiday season is an especially important time to put this into practice. Every child deserves an …

10 Things We Learned From Moving Our Office

November, 14, 2019 SusanGraham | Posted in: Featured Post

When we decided to move our office from the East to the West Shore earlier this year, we knew we’d be in for some big changes. What we didn’t realize was how much we’d also learn from the experience.

Packing up more than a decade of paperwork, belongings and those memories that don’t exactly fit in a box teaches you a lot. Here are 10 lessons we took away …

Embracing and Even Thriving Through Change

September, 29, 2019 SusanGraham | Posted in: Featured Post

The only constant about change is how often it happens in our lives. You can experience big changes — having a baby, changing jobs, transitioning to an empty nest — and smaller ones — a new front door, a different wireless carrier, bringing home a kitten.

Many changes are positive. But even when a positive change occurs in your life, it takes getting used to. Even positive changes can cause …

Applying For a Job? Avoid These Digital Disasters.

September, 29, 2019 SusanGraham | Posted in: Featured Post

 

We’ve all done it – posted something to one of our social media pages and in the moment thought “I’m a literary genius, my opinion is spot-on!” and then weeks later looked back at it and cringed harder than watching someone on a bike trip over a rock and faceplant into the dirt.

As a millennial, I’ve lost count of how many cringey posts I’ve put into the digital …

Embracing the Growth Mindset

September, 29, 2019 SusanGraham | Posted in: Featured Post

It started, as so many good things do, on a whim.

On a doorway at our office in Hershey, Susan began measuring the height of the children who came in with their parents who worked for her. It became just another thing we did at SGC, like keeping a box full of toys in Susan’s office for the kids to play with during out meetings.

The earliest marks on the …

It’s 100 Degrees Out: Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff

September, 29, 2019 SusanGraham | Posted in: Featured Post

I recently had the fun experience of dealing with a broken water heater that had spilled gallons and gallons of water onto the floor of the kitchen and bathroom of my apartment.

The kicker? It wasn’t my water heater that broke. It was my upstairs neighbor’s.

Long story short, a few puddles dripping from my bathroom ceiling light turned into my fiancé and I being up to our ankles in …

The Practice of Patience

September, 29, 2019 SusanGraham | Posted in: Featured Post

You know what’s really fun? No, actually like super duper mega fun?

Planning a wedding and buying a house. At the same time.

Ha. Hahaha. HAHAHAHAHA.

I was given many gifts in this life, but patience was not one of them. I’m stubborn, cranky, and sometimes overly-opinionated. My mother can attest to all three of these.

So how I got it in my well-educated mind that it would be a …

Spring Cleaning for Work: The Whys and Hows

April, 11, 2019 SusanGraham | Posted in: Featured Post

When you think of spring cleaning, you probably think of your home — attacking the dirt built up on the windows, beating the dust out of musty rugs, waxing your wooden floors and clearing out every stitch of clothing your kids can’t zip anymore.

While spending a weekend tidying your home can indeed feel magical, why stop there? You can apply that same burst of energy to your office.
