How a Habitat for Humanity Build Brought My Team Closer Together

Volunteering together is a great way to build relationships with your colleagues. You get to know things about co-workers that would never have come up in a typical workday discussion.

Hitting a Home Run with Perficient

I grew up in the Belleville, IL, area and attended Belleville East High School, the home of the Lancers. During those four years (2004 to 2008), I developed as a student, an athlete, and more importantly, a person thanks to the softball program. I can’t begin to express what an awesome group of coaches are […]
