Today I want to highlight two distinct topics that are intermingled nonetheless.
The first is the business philosophy that reinforces People before Profits…
It may not have started here, but in 2015 Dale Partridge wrote a book about the benefits to a business by putting “People over Profits". Some key points included in the book state:
- Recognize the value of people.
- Understand why honesty is always the best policy.
- Realize everyone must stay true to who they are.
- Develop and maintain quality standards.
- Be generous without intention of getting something in return.
While these are straightforward and simple thoughts- even very logical- how often do we experience Bosses, Managers or Supervisors who don't abide by them?
Your staff is a reflection of who you are!! How you treat others is witnessed by everyone in the office.
Sometimes we need a soft, gentle reminder to treat people the way we want to be treated.
, but related, point is to announce we are looking for candidates for our 2020 ACSR of the Year. Do you have an employee, teammate or co-worker that deserves recognition? Please check out our website and our upcoming Go Big Event in May
