This summer, Orman published its second annual “Open Letter” on our Glassdoor page. If you’re familiar with it, you know that the Open Letter essentially serves as a public “State of the Company” address: a review of past successes and failures in addition to unavailing plans for the future.
Our President, Rosemary Sundin, wrote and published our first Open Letter on October 1st, 2014.
More than a year later, it’s not just Orman that’s utilizing the Open Letter as a tool to effectively communicate to clients, team members, and prospective employees. After learning its benefits, other companies in a variety of industries are writing their own Open Letters. This is a direct result of Glassdoor account managers who, impressed by the valuable transparency an Open Letter provides, began recommending the initiative to other clients.
Suffice to say, the Open Letter is catching on.
