Boss Certified Realtime Reporting: Still the Boss
A brief history of Boss Certified Realtime Reporting and the positive impact on South Florida.
She was a business major. Like many, life started to happen for Donna Kadosh and she changed her area of study and it wasn’t easy. “More than half of my class didn’t graduate, as the curriculum was extremely demanding.” But Donna did graduate. She also went on to build one of the largest court reporting firms in the south Florida area.
Started in 1995, Boss Reporting began in a rented office and secured two steady clients. Fast forward to 2015 and they have grown significantly. Currently, the firm has grown to over 40 court reporters. Some have been with Boss for over a decade. “I’ve worked for Boss for more than ten years,” stated Diana Hall Chalk, a dedicated employee.
They’ve also been recognized by the community. In 2011 the growing firm was nominated for “Small Business of the Year” by the Greater Fort Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce. This honor was in recognition of Boss’s successful management, integrity, and continuing contributions to the Fort Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce and local area businesses.
During the same year, Boss Reporting also took part in an event hosted in part by the local Women’s Council. Suits and other gently used business attire were donated for victims of domestic violence. Taking part in activities such as this combined with recognition awards show the commitment this organization has to the surrounding area.
When it comes to their clients, Boss Certified Realtime Reporting has always provided outstanding service. It’s important to note that they have also led the way in educating the field on the strengths of stenographic reporting versus digital court reporting. In a recent blog, Boss stated that court room reporters spend time “in courtrooms and understand the various terms and jargon that are thrown around. He or she can stop to ask questions if there is an issue with the quality of audio or if someone’s verbal statement was not heard.” This type of flexibility and attention to detail is a quality that digital recording cannot provide due to the limitations of the technology. This also shows Boss Reporting’s commitment to stenographic court reporters and educating peers in the field regarding this important issue.
Their educational efforts don’t end there. New employees have to spend at least a month working with seasoned reporters to learn the basic firm procedures before heading into the courtroom on their own. Training practices like this combined with a twenty-year history of excellence ensuring that Boss will be on the reporting scene for many years to come.
