Posted by Neil Shah on Aug 8, 2017 10:30:00 AM

  From L to R: WFC Group employees Jill Stidd, Neil Shah & Kimberly Scott

In a time when email and mobile devices have created an "always on" working culture, it's important for professionals and businesses to strike a balance. As a company with an entirely remote workforce spanning four time zones, we know all too well the effort, energy and discipline this all takes. That's why we've started an internal initiative to "Live Big," inviting our staff to take opportunities to pursue a personal activity goal outside of work, and we support them along the way.

What about the 40%? The Case for Full-Time IT Employees

Posted by Neil Shah on Jan 17, 2017 10:30:00 AM

Outsourcing has become nearly synonymous with IT and technology. As our reliance on the cloud and Internet connections grows, so does our openness to flexible or contractor hires.

Here at The WFC Group, we wanted to help a family in need over the holidays, and adopted a family for Christmas located in Dallas, Texas (where two of our remote employees currently work and reside). We partnered with a great organization, The Family Place, to help us select a family in need.

The WFC Group Heads to New Orleans!

Posted by Neil Shah on May 18, 2016 10:30:00 AM

As I write this blog post, most of our employees are in route to the land of Mardi Gras, jazz music and French cuisine, to attend our annual company summit in New Orleans. As The WFC Group employs a full-time remote workforce (we just recently won an award by Fortune Magazine for our flexible remote schedule opportunities!), we organize this three day large event each year to thank our valued employees for their hard work, and connect them to their peers to help continue to grow their working relationships. The WFC Group company summit has now become a yearly tradition for our growing company - in past years we jet-setted to Puerto Rico, and Charleston, South Carolina.
