All Hand's Meeting 2016

This past weekend, the entire Golden Software team met in Golden for our 8th annual All Hands Meeting. Golden Software is primarily a telecommuting company with employees located all over the US. Every year, we gather all of the Golden Software team together in a single room. We sit down and talk about what we’ve accomplished, what the future holds, and ways we can improve to best serve our customers. We also play some games, gather with our family and co-workers for a great Saturday evening dinner, and reconnect with each other. It is always fun at the end of the meeting to go back home knowing how everyone’s kids are doing, what new personal hobbies we all have, and what significant events have happened since we last saw each other.


This year’s meeting was primarily focused on the future and how Golden Software can change to meet today’s more demanding market. We are looking at possibilities that did not exist 10, or even 5, years ago. We’re all super excited to get back to the office and start working on future projects that will give you, our users, more of what you are asking for!
