Our Culture

IOB people are glad to be here. (Ask them and you’ll see.) It’s not just because productive work is fulfilling. It’s also because they all participate in deciding how this organization is run.

Every month, all of us get together to discuss operations and suggest improvements. Our President, Joshua Gould, leads the meeting, but anybody can talk. We all know that open exchange of ideas leads to continual improvement.

We’ve watched it happen and we’re proud to be part of it.
