Sharing Our Why With Our Clients

Since our Why Statement was rolled out, most of the focus has been placed on how it applies to us internally here at DISTek.  However, recently the Sales Team got together to discuss how we can present it externally in a way that resonates with our clients, as well.  This not only equips our team with the knowledge and background when we are talking with current, as well as potential clients, but it also allows us to share more about who we are here at DISTek and what we believe in so passionately.

Cheers to 30 Years!

30 years ago DISTek founder Matt Dickinson took a leap of faith and stepped away from his Monday – Friday job at a company in the St Louis, Missouri area and started a consulting business from his basement.  It is those humble beginnings that would lead to the formation of DISTek and pave the way for what it is today.

2021: A Year in Review

If 2020 was the year that COVID-19 hit us like a tsunami wave, 2021 seems like it was the year we all tried to figure out how to respond to it. In the news, companies would roll out back-to-office plans only to have them postponed or modified. In-person events would get scheduled and then change to virtual or be cancelled, or in some cases, held in person but with restrictions or mitigations. If nothing else, the COVID-19 pandemic has at least improved our knowledge of the Greek alphabet.

Happy Halloween from DISTek

If you’ve read any of our Halloween blogs from the past, you already know that Halloween is my favorite.  While this year’s annual parade of costumes was hosted as a virtual event again this year, we certainly didn’t let that discourage our fun!  Please enjoy a look at this year’s costumes!

ESOP: Owning vs. Renting

What does it mean to own a car versus renting a car? For me, there is a huge difference between the two. Admittedly, I am not the type of individual that returns a rental car clean and washed, as I know the rental company (who actually owns the car) will take care of that. However, with the car I own, I make it a priority to wash it at least once a week to keep the paint maintained and the car looking nice. I make sure when I fill up with gas to clean the interior a bit. I do monthly check-ins to make sure everything is operating efficiently. I also check my tires regularly for wear and tear. In other words, I am inclined to take more care of something I own versus something I am renting.
