Tell us about your company’s mission and values
For more than 20 years, we’ve been committed to building a company that’s both welcoming and engaging. Our values drive everything we do:
1. Integrity is Indispensable
We believe that everything starts with being honest and open in our relationships with both our business partners and team members.
2. Centered on our Customers
We believe that we wouldn’t be where we are if it weren’t for our customers who trust us with their business—and we don’t take that for granted. We strive to provide a high level of satisfaction for our clients and take pride in the fact that much of our business is repeat business.
3. Passionate about our People
We believe in providing every professional who joins Solü with challenging opportunities that empower them to thrive in a career they love. More than a team, we like to see ourselves as one big Solü family that truly cares for each other and their success.
4. Flexibility Moves us Forward
We know that the technology industry doesn’t wait for anyone. That’s why our nimble, resourceful, and agile business model is designed to meet the ever-changing needs of our customers and employees.
What are the services you use the most (or are looking forward to using) from the Columbus Chamber?
Solü is most looking forward to building connections with fellow Chamber members, attending events, and taking advantage of the many programs and opportunities available. Since our business is all about people, it only makes sense for us to leverage the Chamber, its resources, and connections!
How do you stay engaged with trends that you see in your industry?
There are many professional associations that provide resources, education and research for the staffing and recruiting industry, such as the American Staffing Association and The Association of Talent Acquisition Professionals.
As it relates to our technologists, we’re involved in local, national and international organizations and events like the Project Management Institute and AWS re: Invent that help us stay up to date on the latest trends. We also maintain strong relationships with thought leaders at academic institutions and corporations, and place an emphasis on lifelong learning. Our employees are incentivized to pursue continuing education and industry certifications to help them develop and grow their skills, and we are consistently identifying tools and technologies that we can incorporate into our service delivery.
What is your company culture like?
We have a people-first culture at Solü. What does that mean? That we’re always taking into account what’s best for our teams and business partners. As we’ve grown over the years, our core beliefs have helped guide us and keep us focused on our mission.
And we can’t have all work with no play! We think it’s important to spend time with our teams outside of work – doing things like volunteering, participating in local events or simply having a meal together. It’s things like this that bring us closer together!
What does it take to be a successful employee at your company?
We hire individuals who align with our core values. That means being committed to doing the right thing, keeping an open mind, and being willing to continue honing your skill set. Our employees are leaders in their fields who are true team players and open to ideas and perspectives other than their own.
What makes Columbus such a great place to do business?
We’re proud to be a part of the thriving Columbus business and tech community! We’ve been able to build long-lasting relationships with customers in a variety of industries whose values and culture align with ours. With some of the nation’s largest companies headquartered here combined with the affordable cost of living, it’s no wonder Columbus has been cited as the Midwest’s tech hub
