This Week at Notarize Episode #5: Defining Culture in Your Company

We're back with a new episode of "This Week at Notarize" – our weekly series about everything happening inside Notarize! This week we're talking about culture. So much of the success of any company comes down to how connected employees are to each other, and the mission they're rallied around. What many companies get wrong, is they believe that culture is a fixed idea, and what you have some semblance of it, that it never changes.

That's why I was excited to interview Jasmeet Arora and Kevin Fanning, who are both heavily active in helping us define our culture here at Notarize.

Uber, Lyft, Remote Online Notarization: How the Gig Economy is Impacting the Role of the Notary

I can’t remember the last time I took a cab, and the luxury of having my favorite sushi delivered to my front door isn’t bad, either. These experiences are products of the booming “Gig Economy,” a term coined by Tina Brown of The Daily Beast to describe the influx of freelance and part-time work in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis.

Today, the gig economy is now responsible for more than 10% of jobs across the country. In this blog post we’ll explore how remote online notarization, which empowers notaries to notarize documents entirely online and from the comfort of their homes, is providing 4 million notaries with the opportunity to offer better, on-demand service through an ever-evolving gig economy.
