BEHIND THE SCENES:
JOINING THE TGG TEAM
TGG Team Members Annie Cha, Nate Ferguson, Janice Lefebvre, Danny Quarrell, and Samya Thangaraj have been with The Gunter Group for varying periods of time and each one of them has a unique story in regards to their transition to The Gunter Group.
Today, with their help, we are going to take a behind the scenes look at what it’s like to join the TGG team and become part of the TGG culture.
Let’s start here: What was your background prior to becoming a Consultant at TGG?
Janice: I worked for a health insurance carrier.
Nate: Previously I had worked as an analyst and did some account management as well.
Samya: I was a generalist consultant.
Danny: I did Director of IT and CTO type roles, mostly.
Most of you came from non-Consultant career paths. What was that like during the hiring process?
Annie: I was actually a little bit intimidated because consulting wasn’t my background but what’s unique about the culture at TGG is that you don’t have to be from a consultant background to really thrive here.
Nate: In my case, TGG really helped me see the parallels with the core competencies I had from my experiences.
Samya: I realized and appreciated that they’re not focused on what you’re missing, but they’re focused on what you’re bringing.
Janice: For me, I appreciated that TGG found value in the idea that every person comes to the table with a different personality, different skill sets.
During the transition, what about the TGG culture was supportive and helped you develop in your new role?
Danny: What I loved seeing was that if a teammate wanted to expand their knowledge and experience in an area, TGG helped them learn it, and other people here with that specific skill or expertise, were more than willing to assist along the way.
Annie: Knowing without a doubt that I could reach out to any of my colleagues here and they would be ready and willing to help.
Samya: I was told early on that it’s more of a family culture, and that definitely held true during my transition and has continued on a daily basis.
Janice: I love how the team is close-knit and really cares about each person as an individual. This has been evident since day one, and it’s not only supportive but it helps everyone be successful as well.
Thank you again to each of you for taking the time to share and reflect on your transition and time with TGG. We look forward to more opportunities to support our authentic culture and deliver impactful work together.
