An Inside Look: Guest Blog by Micayla

Last weekend I had the pleasure of coming home from my university to celebrate my mom’s birthday a bit early. Not only did this quick trip gave me a chance to see my family, but I also got to experience Mosaic Global Transportation’s quality service first-hand.

Once I landed in San Francisco, I turned my phone back on, only to be welcomed to The Bay Area with a friendly “Good Morning!” text message from my chauffeur letting me know her name, phone number and that she was right outside to pick me up.

Getting into the car, I was immediately impressed by the high level of service. The car was clean with the passenger seat pushed forward to give me extra leg room – Something that was lacking on the plane I just stepped off of. She navigated the early morning commute traffic and got me home safe and sound in no time.

On the tail-end of my trip, I received a text message from Mosaic Global Transportation’s HQ, confirming that my chauffeur, Mark, was on his way and provided me with his phone number in case I needed to reach him. However I never needed to use it because he was there 15 minutes early, ready to take me to the airport.

A couple hours later, I landed at LAX airport. I was greeted by Gregory who was fully prepared for my arrival with a sign and a luggage cart. I was absolutely blown away by the way that he exceeded the ‘normal’ duties that a chauffeur would have and provided me with more than I even needed.

On the drive back, he offered me bottled water, asked if I had a radio station I’d prefer to listen to and promptly dropped me back on campus.

This level of service completely changed my travel experience. Getting from point A to point B was more than just a necessary part of my weekend, but was actually an enjoyable part of it. My time spent at home with my family was so great – A weekend like that deserved the high level of service that Mosaic Global Transportation provides.

Happy New Year!

945873_10208340491412058_6094487237820896180_n-1I hope the Christmas Holiday and New Year celebration was safe and festive for all.

As we usher out 2015 and welcome in 2016, I wanted to send you a note about the outstanding achievements our company has experienced last year. From an employee point of view, we’ve grown from 47 full time employees to just over 80.  Mosaic added 2 new locations; one in Sunnyvale and one in Santa Clara. We added 6 major clients to the fold and we were awarded the 2016 Super Bowl contract with the Super Bowl 50 Host Committee!

Looking to 2016, we are planning for an exciting year.  We will continue to grow with new employees.  I wouldn’t be surprised if we hit the 100 mark by the end of the year.  With an increase in employees, we are planning an increase in new business as well.  We continue to receive blessings from above and we remain humble and thankful.

Rhonda and I thank you for your commitment to excellence, as well as your teamwork mentality.  It truly takes a village to build a fantastic company.  Mosaic Global Transportation has a great village in you!  Let’s have a great 2016.

Regards,

Maurice H. Brewster

Mosaic’s Newest Tuck Graduate

IMG_6077

From December 7th through 9th Micayla Brewster, Mosaic Global Transportation’s Digital Marketing Manager, visited Seattle to participate in Tuck Executive Education’s Digital Excellence course.

Over 60 entrepreneurs from all over the country gathered together to learn about how they can improve their digital presence. “The learning environment that Tuck provided allowed for me to learn, obviously, but also to take time out of my day to sit down and think of how I could take Mosaic’s digital presence to the next level. Already I have ideas that I’m fleshing out and planning on implementing in the coming weeks. It’s an exciting time.”

“There was a creative energy there. Being on Google’s campus, being surrounded by entrepreneurs wanting to grow their business, and being able to learn from such intelligent people like Professor Alva and Professor Akinc made for such a great week” Micayla said.

She added that there is something powerful about gathering together people who are extremely passionate about what they do and then giving them the tools to get their products, services and ideas in front of more people. “It’s an entrepreneurs dream.”

This wasn’t Mosaic’s first time being represented at the program. Maurice Brewster attended this same course in Boston at the beginning of the summer of 2015 and had such a great experience that he decided to invest in sending Micayla there as well.

Micayla said that, “After attending the program myself, I see how essential it was that [Maurice] attended the program just as I was being hired. If it weren’t for Tuck and their course, our digital strategy would’ve been so different from the beginning. But instead, he was just as passionate about building our digital presence as I was because he had been inspired by the people at Tuck.”

That is not just true for Mosaic, but for companies in general. It’s proven that revenue goes up when you have high digital capabilities, but if leadership is not on board and is helping in pushing these efforts forward, the digital strategy will hit a ceiling.

Micayla had such a great time able to learn from the best in the industry. We’re happy to be part of a Tuck family and are looking forward to years of learning and growing with them.

 


“Tuck Executive Education at Dartmouth designs and delivers learning initiatives that transform individuals and organizations…that help executives improve their performance as leaders so they deliver stronger results…that better equip them to drive growth, innovation, and change for their organizations.”

The Workspace Redefined

Working From Home

Photo Source: The Huffington Post

The office space has been going though drastic reconsideration in recent years. As technology advanced, more options for work locations became available, thus more and more people began using their homes as an office.

According to an article on Forbes.com, one in five Americans have shifted their place of employment from the typical office to their homes. In fact, several Mosaic Global Transportation employees will be transferring to this model of work in the months to come.

So, why is this shift so important?

First, because “47% of people who have the option to telework are “very satisfied” with their jobs, compared to 27% of those who are office-bound,” according Telework, a government organization that provides information about teleworking to employers and employees. Working from home not only avoids the dreaded morning and evening commute, but also allows for flexibility of hours, greater productivity and feelings of empowerment.

Secondly, the shift opens up new needs for public workspaces such as Blue Bottle Coffee in Downtown Palo Alto. This Café-workspace hybrid is the perfect place for Silicon Valley residents with a flexible work location to be able to get things done. With Silicon Valley’s history of creative and innovative thinking along with Blue Bottle’s work environment make it a perfect place to come up with the Next Big Thing or simply log those next few hours for work.

Finally, this opens up larger questions about how the world is moving and what people need in a workspace. Places like Google, one of our newest clients, are heading the movement towards making the workspace encourage natural innovation.

“Casual collisions are what we try and create in the work environment. You can’t schedule innovation, you can’t schedule idea generation and so when we think our facilities around the world we’re really looking for little opportunities for engineers or for creative people to come together,” Daniel Radcliffe, vice president of Google’s Real Estate & Workplaces Services, said in this article by CBS News.

As the world shifts and technology advances, it’s possible that the typical 9-5 cubicle job will eventually become less common.

We’re interested in what you’ve been hearing about workspaces and how you think the world is headed. Leave a comment below or tweet us @MosaicGlobal to join the conversation!

She said:

“Maurice:

With joy I sent this to the two hundred members of the Mobius practitioner community,

You and your wife are true inspirations of giving back, supporting the world and generous leadership.

Since the day you offered me a ride in Palo Alto which must be 15 years ago when my car service had failed to show up to the Westin to take me to the Stanford Faculty Club I have never forgotten that simple act of kindness or what you shared about your Make A Wish Work.  Whenever I can in every city I visit I use Mosaic drivers and they all rave about how amazing your company is to work for/with. 

And as a customer I find everyone to be professional, warm, reliable and full of gracious hospitality.

You should be tremendously proud of the contributions you make and the inspiring beacon you are.

We are proud and honored to support you and Mosaic Global Transportation as requested.

With Love and gratitude,

Amy”
