Building Bridges: Sluss + Padgett LLC Transforms Culture Through Tech Innovation

Although COVID is far in the rear view, many companies across the U.S. are still grappling with the challenge of getting people back into the office and creating a cohesive and collaborative environment for in-person and remote workers. AV and IT managers are the unsung heroes in this scenario, tasked with the job of finding and setting up tech that not only entices employees back to the office but also boosts team spirit. And they've got to make sure everyone's experience, whether they're at home or in the office, feels seamless.

In the heart of Norcross, GA, Sluss + Padgett LLC (S+P), a prominent commercial HVAC general contractor, is a great example of a company that has flourished amid this challenge. With a nationwide workforce exceeding 100 employees, the company wanted to unite its dispersed teams while modernizing its training facilities. This is the story of how Sluss + Padgett LLC embraced technology to propel its operations forward.

Tech as the Bridge

Partnering with Sharp, Sluss + Padgett LLC underwent a thorough assessment of its technological needs and operational objectives.  The result was a transformation of its training room into a cutting-edge space equipped with state-of-the-art collaboration tools, including AQUOS BOARD collaboration displays, Mersive wireless solutions, audio-visual systems, and touchpad controls. Now, sales, software experts, project managers, and trainers could convene from any corner of the country, saving valuable resources that would have been spent on travel. These supercharged systems are sophisticated but not overly engineered, enabling any employee to utilize the setup effortlessly.

But it wasn't just the training room. Three conference rooms got an upgrade with large format displays. A lobby display became a canvas for project showcases and client success stories. And the break room, now featuring a Sharp display, emerged as a popular spot for company news, celebrations, and team bonding.

A Unified Front for Continuous Learning

The impact was profound. Sluss + Padgett LLC witnessed positive shifts in financial performance, employee satisfaction, and overall operations. The revamped training room facilitated remote participation, and the improved conference rooms enabled simultaneous training for diverse teams. Beyond the numbers, the technology became a catalyst for a connected, engaged, and appreciative work environment. The solutions are so effective that Sluss + Padgett sister companies in Douglasville, Georgia, and Tampa, Florida, have plans to create similar office solutions.

Return on Objective

By embracing cutting-edge solutions and prioritizing the development of its workforce, Sluss + Padgett LLC has positioned itself for sustained growth and success. The company stands as a testament to remembering that although ROI is important when it comes to office technology, creating a cohesive environment for a hybrid workforce is about Return on Objective. Technology should support teambuilding and create a workplace environment that makes the office a destination.
