Be Eudaimonious. (U-DAH-MOAN-E-US)
This post is not about digital asset management or premedia. It's not about marketing or technology. This post, quite simply, is about people – our people. Widen is always on the lookout for talented people because ultimately, it is our people that make a difference. It is our people that help organizations operate more efficiently, elegantly and powerfully. It is our people that help make the world a better place by reducing the amount of paper and consumables.

To be eudaimonious is to strive for sustainable happiness by achieving excellence while pursuing actions that demonstrate a grander sense of purpose. Great accomplishments take significant time and effort requiring an individual to make decisions that demand courage and honesty while understanding that short-term gains are not always progressing toward long-term happiness. At Widen, we conduct ourselves with a grander sense of purpose and strive to achieve the greater good by balancing the key components of our lives; families, friends, careers, education, and personal activities. Eudaimonia aligns with our sustainable business practices to ensure the organization is providing a place for the next generation of leaders. Building a culture of employees that understands our purpose and the impact we make economically, socially, and environmentally.
Eudaimonia is not something your manager can review; it is only something with which employees can review of themselves. And that self-review should not take place in a system of metrics, such as meeting or exceeding expectations. Eudaimonia is for the employee to determine and to critique their own level of happiness based on a balanced lifestyle and grand sense of purpose. As an organization, we promote eudaimonia as an ethical framework; part of the organizational philosophy that also consists of purpose, values, mission and vision. Our ethical framework is to "Be eudaimonious."
