Welcome to the Phacilitator Blog

As a company of nearly 900 employees across the U.S. and around the World, keeping employees engaged and maintaining the lines of two-way communication open can be a challenge. This blog sprung out of that challenge, but we realized that this blog could also provide potential employees and others interested in Phacil with a glimpse into what we’re up to. The Phacilitator is meant to be fluid with continual updates as noteworthy things arise.

It is our hope that Phacilitator Blog readers will find the articles informative and engaging. We invite interested employees to author an article relative to their area of expertise. Plus, all articles are open for comment. We want to know what’s on your mind!
