If you haven’t heard by now, Norbella turned 10 and brewed a beer to celebrate. We do crazy fun things, but not just because we enjoy a good time. As people get to know each other, they feel more at home. They talk and work together more effectively, and our best work as individuals and as a company are achieved. Sometimes these conversations happen in a conference room, sometimes outside the office, and sometimes someone says “Hey want to grab a beer real quick?” Getting to know someone where the hangout is relaxed has benefits beyond enjoying an iced cold brew.
