Telling our story together

As 2018 comes to a close, we want to thank you for reading our blog. This was our first year sharing stories with the world, and we hope you’ve had as much fun reading as we have writing (and reading, and learning from each other).

This year, we heard from 14 unique authors. They were junior data analysts, designers, and senior leaders. They wrote on everything from artificial intelligence to workplace wellness. Through their voices, we hope you’ve learned more about the work we do and who we are. We also hope you continue to follow along next year as we introduce new authors and topics.

If you’re reading for the first time, missed a post, or want to revisit an old favorite, we’ve included below our top five posts of the year. From all of us at HWC, we wish you happy holidays and a fantastic new year.
