For sure I would not be so enthusiastic if it was a typical report, containing 1-2 pages of text in Calibri, size 11. Our management reports combine the best of Reach-U and Regio - skills of the software team and the cartographs, rendering all information into the form of maps.
Each year we have an internal contest for choosing the theme that addresses the previous year the best. This year we chose it to be a physical map and I am thrilled to let you know that the new report is ready!
Previously we have had some explanatory texts added to the map. This has mainly been done because we have had to explain why our results have not been as good as expected. This year we did not have to add them.
In addition to financial overview, we reflect the activities and events that we are most proud of or which affected us as a team the most.
Did you notice the theatre symbol? This is there because our sales team performed to the children of our employees a Christmas play. It combined teamwork, public speaking training and the outcome was a vey fun for the children as to their parents.
And the oil rig? This represents our first contact with Revenue Share model!
The white ship represents that we are sailing in the profit and we do have new ships under construction for the future.
Did you know that the names in the sea are the members of our team? And that the depth number and intensity of blue next to the names reflects the years they have been working in Reach-U? Did you know that Anne, Eda and Jüri have worked here for already 26 and a half years? Did you notice who our newest team member is?
Hemingway has said, that in every port in the world there is at least one Estonian. In every port on our map we have delivered our solutions. How many flags did you count?
And the most interesting question - did you find your name there?
Why we chose it to be a physcial map?
The world is in constant change and each day brings something new. This is the attitude also in Reach-U as we discover new areas, angles and technologies. In the beginning of 2015 our cartographers were exploring maps and discovered that the highest point in Viljandi, Estonia, is actually higher than it was believed. This is the course Reach-U has been since 2014 - finding new heights. And not only on maps but in every area we are active. This is why we chose a physical map for the theme of our 2014 management report – we are proud of the heights we are conquering and the positive changes that we are creating day by day.
