We all have 24 hours, 1,440 minutes, and 86,400 seconds in a day. That’s the unique thing about time, nobody has a competitive advantage. You can’t buy it, and no matter what you do, you can’t get more than 24 hours in a day. A lot of us are probably guilty of saying that we wish there were more hours in the day. But why wish for more hours in the day when we can make better use of the time we have?
When starting a career, there can be challenges employees and employers face integrating and contributing into a team. As a new entry into a chosen field, a person may have to come up-to-speed on complex business processes and gain fundamental domain knowledge before they can deliver meaningful value. As an employer, you must provide time and space, along with learning materials, to a new employee.

At In Time Tec, we understand that there is a whole person working for us. We have never been and will never be the kind of company who treats our employees as “cogs in a machine.” From our in-office gym to leading with love, we take every aspect of being human into account as we work with our employees.

The average person spends around 90,000 hours at work in their lifetime. I think it’s safe to say that it’s crucial for people to work at a place they enjoy. This also means that business owners not only need to navigate attracting top talent- but also retaining it. This starts with finding out what employees are really looking for in a job. Yes, money is an important aspect for most people when job searching, but ultimately people are looking for perks that go much deeper than monetary value.
Every month we share content that we are reading. This month, we dive into the books that a group of our developers have been reading.
There were many things about 2020 that were difficult. The COVID pandemic hit every country and every community, and it has changed the way we think and the way we do things in this world. In March, it was business as usual, and then the pandemic came and forced us to pivot and adjust in many ways. And though I don't want to overlook all the challenges and suffering that this year has brought, when I look back, 2020 was the year that made In Time Tec a more nimble, flexible, and agile company.
A few months back, the Build ITT Future US Leadership team attended our offsite at a lake-side house in McCall, Idaho. We were full of anticipation knowing the creation that lay ahead of us during the four-day trip. The week was full of long days and beautiful breakthroughs, as our offsites often are.
