Anti-Cruelty Society in Chicago

NewHire spent half of the day Monday, January 19 at the Anti-Cruelty Society in Chicago.

NewHire is a recruiting software company. When you think “software company”, you think “computers”, not people. Computers are great. But, when is the last time you saw a computer do THIS?

Eddie, a numbers guy, is also a puppies guy. Who knew?


That’s right. At NewHire, we do things a little bit differently. We’re not just a few lines of code that make life a little easier. We are also real, reliable people. When you call us, a human answers the phone. Unless, of course, we’re at the Anti-Cruelty Society spreading the love with these adorable little furballs.

Eagle Eye is an adult Saint Bernard. He was so happy to see us that he smiled for a photo!

Pandora, a calm and cool female adult Shorthair mix, was less impressed.

Seymour, a 2 month old and part of a set of triplets (aptly named Phillip, Seymour, and Hoffman,) joined us for arts and crafts time!

The Anti-Cruelty Society welcomed NewHire with open arms, not just to play with the pets they have up for adoption, but to help provide them with easy-to-make beds, tug-toys, cat-scratchers, and various other play-things.

Seymour even made off with one of his own…

…and he got a little tied up in the fun.

As happy as we were to give back, we couldn’t have done it without the kindness and welcoming help of our friends at The Anti Cruelty Society.

We thought it’d be fun to have a little ugly holiday sweater contest at the office, and so we all wore the best ugly sweaters we could find!

We wish you a wonderful holiday season, and a very prosperous 2013!


P.S. Who do you think has the best ugly sweater?

Hey! We got some great press from Brad Spirrison of the Chicago Sun-Times. Take a look at the artlicle he wrote about NewHire helps execs connect :: CHICAGO SUN-TIMES :: Brad Spirrison.

Last week’s MIT Enterprise Forum is highlighted in today’s Sun-Times by tech columnist Brad Spirrison.

And I have to say, he got it right. Thanks Brad. I said that employment today is more than ever based on a “mutual coincidence of interest” between the employer and employee.

When that coincidence of interest ceases to be mutual, it’s time for someone to move on.

This kind of mobility is, ultimately, good for both employers and employees, helping to keep ideas fresh and people focused.

Often it’s up to the employer to end the relationship. And, just as often, employers don’t… for lots of reasons. Fear of confrontation. Fear of Change. “Perceived” friendship. Laziness. You name it, the list of excuses can be endless.
