There’s no question about it: Rethink has grown tremendously since we first opened our virtual doors eight years ago. As the curtain comes down on 2023, we’d like to celebrate everything we’ve accomplished — especially all of the milestones we’ve achieved in the last 365 days. 

This year brought us strength in numbers, along with a few exciting firsts for our company. In this “Rethink Recapped” (our take on a “Wrapped,” “Year in Review,” you get the gist), we’re looking back at some of our favorite moments that defined our 2023:

1. We’ve officially hit 150 Rethink clients (and counting!)

This year, we’re not just celebrating how we spent our time — we’re also celebrating who we spent it with. 2023 marked the year that we officially added a 150th client to our Rethink client roster. 

From companies that are just starting out to some of the largest companies in the world, we’re fortunate to work with a diverse group of clients of all different sizes and industries. Our goal is the same across the board: We’re here to help you make positive changes at your organization.

Whether you’re looking to develop a new Code or policies (AI, anyone?), revamp your training curriculum, or reinforce your messaging with microlearning, Rethink is here to help you reach your compliance program goals.

Which brings us to our next highlight…

2. Our Rethink Library has grown to 350+ titles (and counting, too!)

We have always taken pride in building a library that is full of engaging, modern, memorable content. And this year, we officially passed the 350-asset threshold for our library.  

But, let’s be real here: Even as the quantity of our titles grows, we know it’s not just about the numbers. We’re continuing to grow our compliance training library with the highest quality content available. 

If you’re looking to bring something different to your compliance training in the new year, our library is a great place for you to start. We have something to offer in every major compliance risk area, for every type of client. All of our courses can be tailored and customized as much — or as little — as you need. Our Client Services, Advisory Services, and Creative Services teams are all here to collaborate with you. We’ll help you customize our courses to best fit the specific needs of your organization. 

3. We accepted $2 million in investment capital 

2023 marked a huge milestone for our business because, for the first time ever, Rethink accepted an investment from the Cypress Growth Capital team. (Our Founder and CEO, Kirsten Liston, explains all the details here.)

So, what does this mean for you? Well, the more things change, the more they stay the same. Our high-quality products — and high-quality service — have always been, and will always be, the standard for our team. With the structure of our financing, Rethink maintains 100% control, allowing us to keep doing what we’re doing, invest in what’s working, and embrace the opportunity to continue our growth.  

You can continue to expect the same high-level dedication and service from Rethink. A win-win for everyone! 

4. 200+ organizations contributed to our benchmarking study

This year, we published our 2023 benchmarking report — and thanks to the valuable input from our survey participants, we gathered and analyzed data from over 200 organizations. We wanted to hear your thoughts about compliance culture, governance, and resources — and you really came through! 

Our report is available to download here. We’re confident that you’ll find it a helpful resource as you make plans for your compliance program in the upcoming year. 

And, in case you missed it, you can watch members of our Advisory Services team (Andrea Falcione, Becky Burtless-Creps, and Jamie McKillop) share our findings in this webinar recording.

5. We were Platinum Sponsors at the Society of Corporate Compliance and Ethics (SCCE)’s annual Compliance & Ethics Institute (CEI) 

This October, we were thrilled to be Platinum Sponsors of the SCCE’s CEI in Chicago. Both Kirsten and Andrea presented at the conference, continuing to share their expertise and insights with the compliance community. 

It was so great to see old and new faces in the compliance space. And everyone at the conference looked especially great, decked out in their Rethink Compliance lanyards — if we do say so ourselves!

As a Rethinker, it’s exciting to be a part of an organization that is transforming the compliance and ethics space. I joined the Rethink team at the end of 2021 and have seen our company grow from a challenger to a main player in this industry, right before my eyes. Rethink’s growth as a company is not surprising, though, given the talent and skills of our leaders and colleagues across all our teams. I’m proud of what we’ve accomplished this year and can’t wait to see what 2024 has in store for us and our clients!
