In times of change or challenge, a company relies on its culture as a guide, turning back to its legacy to understand how to press forward. But do your employees and investors understand your company’s history? Do they understand where your workplace culture came from?
A corporate history is an excellent way to teach employees about their company’s past and inform shareholders about the people and ideas that set the company apart from the rest. It also allows the company founders to memorialize their legacy and accomplishments. At N2, we work directly with top management to craft the narrative of your company's challenges and triumphs, basing our work on extensive interviews and archival research.
