8 Days until Christmas!
Today was our team potluck, Secret Santa, and Christmas luncheon. I look forward to it every year and love the time we spend together as we head into the final weeks of the year and as we prepare for a big week ahead. It’s important to me to identify with the work I’m doing – and I want everyone to feel that connection and real life difference. So, when cool things happen we share them with one another. When someone says something that makes us feel special, we celebrate it. We ring a cowbell and we shout it from the rooftops. This one is for us, these little wins get us through the tough days and put smiles on our faces. Below are just a few that have come across my desk…
- Our customer called us and asked if it was possible to give an employee a Christmas Bonus – yes, absolutely it is! Then they asked if it was possible to cut it the same day and get it delivered to them the same day so that when their CEO was in town the following day, he could personally deliver it! YES, indeed we can. We’d LOVE to!
- We sent an email blast out to candidates that were inactive that said, “Remember us?” and Susanne replied, “How could I not? And smile J”
- While on site meeting with a 3rd shift supervisor for performance feedback, the leader said “I can tell you coach and connect with your employees…of all the agencies I’ve ever worked with, you guys are easily the best!”
- A customer had a volunteer event during the work day and we were there. While talking to our employee, Jeff, he said “There are so many people who hate who they work for…I don’t! Vision is the best and so awesome! I refer anyone I know that is looking for work!”
- Another employee who called us after getting placed said: “You are so much more business savvy and personable. Thank you for helping me find this job!”
- Tyler came in and waited in our lobby for orientation to start, while waiting he struck up a conversation with Jackie on our team: “You guys are so professional. You’re so different from most agencies; they just shuffle you around – ‘here, do this and this then and off you go.’ But you guys do things professionally.”
