For over a decade, our organizing consultants have partnered with clients to clear clutter and create customized organizing systems for life and work. But in early 2020, a pandemic hit, the world turned upside down, and everyone was sent home and told to work remotely.
Overnight, our homes became our offices, and our offices became our homes. Coworkers were now distance-learning kids, and kids were now coworkers (though usually not very focused or productive ones). Struggling to get things done for work, household chores were ignored, and for many of us, clutter quickly crept in.
Suddenly, talking about separate organizing solutions for homes and offices no longer made sense.
Two Companies, One Remote Work World
Unsure how to effectively meet this emerging need for work-and-life organizing including remote teaming support, Erin Leigh, founder of theNeatNiche, decided it was time to get some help. She reached out to friend, fellow entrepreneur, and management consultant Todd Bradberry, founder and owner of Parallel Management Company.
Unexpectedly, their conversation shifted quickly from consulting to acquisition. Recognizing their combined ability to reach a wider audience and serve more people, Erin agreed. They reached an agreement in late summer, and theNeatNiche officially became a division of Parallel Management Company in September 2020.
Built on the idea that successful, profitable companies drive strategy and culture in parallel, it made sense for Parallel Management to have a division dedicated to the creation of lean, efficient systems. Incorporating theNeatNiche’s team of organizing consultants into the Parallel Management team was a natural fit.
Now, with a combined toolbox full of powerful, effective workflow tools for team leaders and remote teams, Parallel Management and theNeatNiche are quickly rising to the forefront of the “remote work world revolution.”
