Insight from a Sit-Com Character


"Everybody likes new inventions..... but in the end, life and business are about human connections." -Michael Scott (The Office)

Season 4 Episode 4. "Dunder Mifflin Infinity." Character Michael Scott delivers gift baskets to clients in an attempt to demonstrate the value of human connections over technology.

We couldn't agree more! Here at Surveying Solutions, we view the quality of connections with our clients and community as a high priority. While we are always looking to advance our services with new technologies, our core values are best reflected in the relationships we cultivate with our clients, community and our fellow employees. After all, our mission statement says it clearly:


"Show our community, clients, and employees we care by providing an unmatched professional service amplified by our desire to glorify God as we serve and invest in others."


Providing you with a survey doesn't even scratch the surface of WHY we do what we do here at Surveying Solutions. We care about cultivating connections and relationships with our clients, our community and employees in a way that glorifies God and separates us from other companies in our industry.


We strive to do this with our clients by being precise and proactive on job sites. We do the work required of us but are always on the lookout for ways to go above and beyond, ensuring that the process is as smooth as possible for them. We are always willing to consult with our client to ensure we provide them with the proper service.


We do our best to be intentional in the community that is home to our offices. In the past, we've partnered with the town of Youngsville on projects and have participated in volunteer events. We're looking forward to doing some drone flyovers this upcoming spring for a church in our community.


With our employees, we do our best to be intentional by sharing weekly prayer requests and keeping up with what is going on outside of work. We have several annual events for employees that we always look forward to! It is also imperative to us that we are spurring our team on towards greatness and their fullest potential. For us, that looks like regular check-ins, helping them advance their education and capabilities, and holding regular meetings to discuss processes and efficiency.


Michael Scott from the sitcom, "The Office," may not be the best example of what it should look like to lead a company. But his character hit the nail on the head when it comes to the value of people and human connection in business. They are of the utmost importance to us. We strive daily to reflect that core value in the way we interact with our clients, our community and our employees.
