Independence Day: Interesting Facts About Our Nation’s Birthday [Infographic]

This infographic comes to you from our friends at

For many Americans, the Forth of July is all about backyard cookouts, family get-togethers, and fireworks displays. We here at Switch&Shift would like to take a moment to think, with pride and patriotism, about the origins of this annual holiday. The infographic below provides some interesting facts about the history and origins of our Independence Day celebration.  We present it here with the hope that you, too, will take moment, perhaps between the potato salad and the apple pie, to reflect on what this day means for all Americans.

So enjoy the July 4th festivities, grab a hot dog, and hold your sparklers high as we pay tribute to the birth of this great nation!

There’s a more human way to do business.

  • It was a great day to celebrate the Declaration of Independence signed 240 years ago and the gaining of our independence by force of arms and lots of blood a few years later. In reading the reasons for the Declaration as stated in it, it’s obvious that we are pretty much back to where we were on July 4th 1776. We have lost our independence and our freedom to domestic enemies while our military has successfully protected us against foreign enemies. Apparently, our civilians have not appreciated the fact that freedom is not free.

    There’s a more human way to do business.

    In the Social Age, it’s how we engage with customers, collaborators and strategic partners that matters; it’s how we create workplace optimism that sets us apart; it’s how we recruit, retain (and repel) employees that becomes our differentiator. This isn’t a “people first, profits second” movement, but a “profits as a direct result of putting people first” movement.
