We were thrilled to be recognized as a Best Place to Work 2019 by the Baltimore Business Journal. We received the honor, in part, because of the Abel team culture—centered around relationships, teamwork, and trust. To strengthen our foundation, we annually get out of town for a Go Forward, which is our term for what you might think of as a retreat.

We had a few key goals: to build our internal relationships, to plan for the year ahead, and to have fun!

We spent three days in Dewey Beach—where we brainstormed new ways to improve our agency’s offerings, experienced a full day of workshops led by Marc Kolp, director of the Center for Leadership and Innovation at UMBC Training Centers, and bonded over a surprise meteor sighting.
