By is Live

A few months ago, I received the task of starting a web site that would encompass a different part of TrainSignal that our customers normally don’t see – our “human side,” perhaps.

In order to get into the right mindset, I thought a lot about our company and what the outside perception of us might be. When people ask us, “Where do you work?” and we reply “at TrainSignal, an IT computer training company,” we sometimes seem to lose people’s interest. But working at TrainSignal isn’t as boring as it sounds to the average person. In fact, it’s quite the opposite.

For starters, we have weekly family lunches, monthly group outings, and charity events that we all voluntarily partake in. We work hard at our jobs, but whenever there’s a free minute we’re playing Wii in our Game Room, planning for the next 5K we’re running in, or refereeing a Nerf gun fight between the Marketing team and the Product Development team.

Not only do we love to have fun with each other, but we also love to have fun with our customers. We have Facebook and Twitter book giveaways, free webinars with our instructors, and contests where we directly interact with our customers.

But one of the biggest values that all of us at TrainSignal holds close to our heart, is the value of philanthropy. We strongly believe in “paying it forward” and could not be more proud to work with community organizations as well as with projects that affect us personally. Our goal with each community outreach opportunity is to raise awareness and offer a helping hand. We’ve worked with Salute, Avon Walk for Breast Cancer, and Child’s Play, just to name a few, and we’re always striving to do more.

We’re not some big corporation that’s just in it for the money. We’re a family, and we’re dedicated to giving back to our community – and we decided it’s about time we show that side to our beloved customers.

After months of designing the site, we are finally proud to announce that is now live and ready for you to view!
