In the News: Growth of Organic Market Creates Unique Challenges for Inflow Client Organically Grown Company

 

Organically Grown Company now supports more than 200 employees and supplies to more than 200 stores and restaurants from Portland, Oregon up through much of Washington.

This kind of growth makes staying true to organizational values critical. Organically Grown Company takes special care to ensure that organizational initiatives are in line with the mission and values that made the group stand out in the first place – dedication to sustainable farming techniques and organic agriculture and focus on a happy, healthy, supported workforce.

How do they keep this in mind? With ongoing initiatives that help support longterm company objectives and a growing workforce; new facilities that support energy efficiency; employee incentives for healthy living initiatives.

The company also chose a new ShoreTel® Unified Communications system when the company moved to its new 120,000 square foot, state-of-the-art distribution facility outside of Portland this past fall. The new system was chosen as a way to support a growing and increasingly mobile workforce that often split time between the organization’s various offices. The move to the new facility offered OGC a great opportunity to update its current communications system, leaving behind a less functional, traditional PBX phone system that no longer supported the growth of OGC.

It is important to consider your organization’s growth goals for the future when purchasing a communications system, and one of the reasons why Unified Communications from ShoreTel® can be a great choice, offering highly-scalable options for voice, presence, IM, email and video conferencing solutions that can grow as your organization grows.

We congratulate Organically Grown Company on its ongoing dedication to the ideals that have been the force behind the company since it began back in 1979. Read more about their efforts in a recent Oregonian article by Eric Mortensen.
