A tale of two cities: ACME shows how good employee relations made good business sense

In addition to being an incredible A. Wordsmith client and a brilliant business partner to some of Portland, Seattle and San Diego’s biggest and best companies, ACME Business Consulting is a really great place to work. Sara Fritsch, ACME’s marketing team lead, has worked with ACME for nine years in a variety of roles. Today her life is based in Amsterdam, and her beautiful, colorful life was recently featured on the blog Design Mom in it’s “Call It A Day” section.

ACME Business Consulting has three offices -- Portland, Seattle and San Diego -- and experienced a compound annual growth rate of 33 percent, with the addition of 20 new clients in the last three years alone.

Sara is a working mom, telecommuting from Europe to Oregon, making her way through her expat life on a Dutch cargo bike that can haul as many as five kids at a time. The Design Mom feature is a great peak inside her life, but it also highlights yet another great example of non-traditional professional positions — outside the 9-to-5 office grind — working to add dimension to a company’s brand.

What would your dream working situation be? Do you imagine a day when you could work from a beach in Thailand? Or if you could, would you split your time between a paid job and a passion project? Sara and ACME are living proof that the nontraditional is not only possible, it can be a dream come true.
