Meet Account Manager Laura Schaberg


SOURCE account manager Laura Schaberg is quite the multi-tasker!  Not only is she a busy and talented addition to our team, she pulls double duty as author and curator of her own southern influenced baking and cooking blog "Hint of Southern".  We at SOURCE are lucky enough to treat ourselves to her delicious creations whenever we have in-office events! 

Laura writes the blog herself and, with a little help from her husband, beautifully photographs her creations with step-by-step instructions.  In honor of this 4th of July, take a look at her Patriotic Dessert.  Here's more about Laura:

"Hi, I’m Laura, from Southern California, but I say y’all. After 4 years of college at High Point University in North Carolina, I developed a southern accent. When I returned home, everyone became confused by my southern drawl and questioned where I was from. This is fitting since my mom always taught me southern hospitality through entertaining and cooking for others. Now that I have been out of college for a few years the accent has faded a little bit, but it’s still there. I call it my hint of southern. 
Since college I have become part of the interior design industry, which worked out perfectly since I majored in art history and home furnishings. Baking and cooking have always been a way for me to relax when I get home from work. Now I get to share my love for food and interior design with y’all. 
One of my fondest memories growing up was learning how to bake from my mom and grandmother. They showed me how to bake the best strawberry rhubarb pie and create mini cinnamon crust rolls from the extra dough. Each recipe brings me back to a certain time in my life…the smell of sautéed mushrooms, caramelized onions, or chocolate chip cookies. 
Being southern is more than where you are from. A hint of southern is incorporating hospitality, food and charm into your life, while sharing it with others."

Take a look at all of her tasty creations and, from all of us at SOURCE, enjoy a safe and festive 4th of July!


We ♥ Technology

How cool is this?

Casper Cloaking Technology is an architectural film for glass walls that obscures digital screens to outside view. It acts as a smart shield to ensure data privacy while providing the peace of mind to collaborate freely in any working environment. This is a breakthrough that will unleash space design in the networked modern world. The Casper product offering also includes a suite of graphic patterns that provide an additional layer of subtle visual privacy. Our cloaking technology can either be used on its own or combined with one of these patterns to dial in the perfect balance of privacy and openness. You have to see it to believe it. See below for just a few of the contemporary patterns available using Casper Cloaking Technology.

COLLABORATION: Is there a key? What's the purpose?

We've all heard about modern workplaces. It's all about being more open, social, and collaborative. Studies even show that working together on a task boosts performance.

"The results showed that simply feeling like you're part of a team of people working on a task makes people more motivated as they take on challenges."

Many companies now aspire, if not claim, to have open and collaborative cultures. However, only a few managed to achieve good results from a collaborative atmosphere. So what is the key?

It is suggested that the key to productive collaboration is PURPOSE.

With further studies, researchers found that certain factors such as incentives, recessions, and behaviors can all change how collaborative behaviors work. It's not as easy as setting up an open and collaborative workplace where you'll instantly see performance results. It's about creating the right culture so that collaborative behaviors flourish.

"Once the purpose has been established, it's important to ensure that your work environment all works towards supporting and promoting collaborative working."

Maybe it's an effort worth undertaking?
