WHY TILSON?

Tilson is committed to the health and safety of our employees, clients, and communities and our team remains committed to building and maintaining America’s information infrastructure, which is critical to the ongoing functioning of the economy during and after the pandemic.

As a wireless construction company ourselves, we know the unique challenges you may be facing, and we are here to help. 

We are lucky at Tilson to already be a remote workforce, accustomed to working at home and having senior consultants on staff whose expertise is to set strategy or resolve issues that are specific to remote work but see a larger need in our business community to help other teams get back on their feet.

"We want to do something to help our community and I’m not inclined to sit back and just wait to see what happens in the greater economy, when we have the power to make a difference. So to the extent we have availability during this chaotic time in our society, we want to give away some free consulting to help other businesses get back to work or smooth out inefficiencies, and keep us all moving forward."
