What is the one thing that you would want others to know about your company?

At our core, as a company, and as individual team members, we all truly believe in our QBS theme of "Going Above and Beyond in the Name of True Partnership." 

This applies to both our culture and how we interact with one another and how we work alongside our clients. At QBS we are constantly and consistently innovating for the benefit of our team and our clients. 

What interview questions do you ask or what hiring techniques do you use to hire the right candidate? How important is finding good talent in your company? 

We believe the most important asset that you have as an organization is your people. It's important to take your time when you are hiring new employees—not only do they need to have the right skill set; they need to be a good fit for the culture of your organization. 

Oftentimes you can teach someone how to do a job, but you can't teach a positive attitude and values that are in alignment with the corporate vision and company culture.

How do you manage fast growth? What advice would you give to a company in growth mode?

Take your time. Growth can happen very quickly and if you let the momentum get ahead of where your company is ready to go, it can prove disastrous for everyone involved. Sometimes it can be difficult to press on the brakes, but it's very important to ensure continued success for both your organization and your team members. 

What marketing tips would you offer other companies?

At QBS, the majority of our growth has come through word of mouth—both from client referrals and from within the community. 

We believe in the power of investing in our people and back into our community as the people we interact with, those who work for us, and those we work for can be a huge asset in spreading the word about QBS. 

What lessons did you learn the hard way? If you could go back five or 10 years what advice would you tell yourself?

So far in the history of QBS, we haven't had any significant failures or challenges that really stand out. However, I think the most important asset that you have as an organization is your people. 

It's important to take your time when you are hiring new employees—not only do they need to have the right skill set, they need to be a good fit for the culture of your organization. Oftentimes you can teach someone how to do a job, but you can't teach a positive attitude and values that are in alignment with the corporate vision and company culture.
