    June 20, 2017SVP, People

    Sales hiring is critical for our return to growth. We have been adding and successfully hiring incremental sales positions starting in Q2. We will continue to invest in our sales organization for the remainder of the year. We even announced a special employee referral program for sales referrals, which employees can find on the intranet.

There's also a lack of professionalism within certain teams which needs to be addressed.
