“Human beings need three basic things in order to be content—they need to feel competent at what they do, feel authentic in their lives, and feel connected to others.”—Sebastian Junger, “Tribe: On Homecoming and Belonging.”
In this hyper-digital age there are constant claims that our connections are inauthentic—we only talk to each other through screens. But maybe those screens provide us with an opportunity we never had before? We now have the ability to connect customers of our product in more meaningful and impactful ways. I’m sure you’re thinking, ‘sure connecting people is important but why does Quickbase care?’
Well, the secret sauce of our product is truly our customers.
Quickbase is a platform that allows any problem-solver to take their everyday processes and make them work for them. These people are special. They are curious, innovative, determined—and want to find solutions to their biggest everyday problems. Getting these people together is pretty magical. That is why we invest in connecting people.
Every business is run by people—we want to tell the stories of those individuals and connect them with each other. I believe people are truly altruistic at their core—they are looking for meaningful ways to make an impact and contribute to something bigger. When we ask our customers what their most valuable resource is in helping them be successful with Quickbase – they point to the community and those connections. That is why we invest in community.
