Weathering The Storm
After 23 years in business, Paragon has weathered many challenges and achieved many milestones. It’s been a long and winding road, a crooked stick, and a plan under constant revision. There have been electrifying ups and some serious beat downs, but as we look at our progress over the years, the lives we have impacted, and the team of people that have made this company great, we couldn’t be prouder.
We have served hundreds of customers and consultants over the years, with one primary objective – provide the best experience in the industry (See stories from past consultants). We have held true to our core values, putting others first, resolving problems fast, striving for a high degree of communication and accountability, and always sharing the good with the bad.
In a highly competitive and commoditized services industry, we believed from the very start that a Legendary Service Commitment would be the most significant differentiator and we made that our business. Mind you, not every customer, consultant, or employee thought we were always the best, and we probably weren’t, but we have continuously aspired and strove to do and be our very best.
And so today, this commitment couldn't be more important. We find ourselves like many businesses – trying to weather an unpredictable storm and looking for that glimpse of sun light that’s surely ahead. For Paragon, that means staying true to our core values and delivering predictable outcomes for our clients. It’s allowing our customers, who are likely facing uncharted waters, to focus their efforts on driving their business forward while we focus our efforts on quickly finding talent that can help meet their objectives. At Paragon, we have worked to give back to our community for all that it has given to us. We can assure you that once this bleak and unfortunate time has passed we will continue to serve our community in all ways possible.
To our locally-owned partners and friends across Iowa, Minnesota, and Nebraska, remember that you don’t know how strong your boat is until you have weathered a few storms. Paragon has always played the long game and found countless rewards to this philosophy. Hang in there, keep the faith, focus on what you do best, and let us know if there is any way we can help move your business forward.
