The Life at CEB Blog: 10 Quotes from Posts That Shaped the Past Year

9 June, 2016

1 year. 73 posts. More than a dozen authors. Countless ways we’ve shared the CEB story.

What started in 2015 as an effort to provide a glimpse behind CEB’s walls has evolved into a mosaic of content representing our people, culture, values, and career opportunities. From spotlighting offices across the globe to hearing career advice from senior leaders, Life at CEB has captured all of the geeky, nerdy, and cool things that make CEB great.

As we celebrate the blog’s one-year anniversary (or should we say blogaversary?), we wanted to take a trip down memory lane. Here’s a recap of some of our favorite quotes from a few stories that shaped the past year.
