Sandbox turns their talent into opportunity with Structural.

The Challenge 

Sandbox takes its motto seriously. One Agency. Zero borders. All in. Though building a culture of zero borders and seamless collaboration can be tricky when you have multiple office locations and a variety of departments. Sandbox needed a platform that could connect employees across the country to one another. The innovative culture at Sandbox led them to seek new technologies that could enable agility, connection, and productivity across their decentralized teams.

Intelligent people search for faster, more effective connections. 

Leaders at Sandbox understand, as is the case with all service organizations, the health and well-being of their company rests squarely on the talented shoulders of their people and teams.  They also knew that while their company was rich with internal client, project, and skills data, it was all locked away in silos and not nearly being utilized to its full potential. Structural was able to pull in this people data from internal and external sources and instantly make all that previously inaccessible data 100% searchable and useful for everyone.  

Sandbox's people data is collected from existing systems and organized into rich profiles.
