I worked 25 years as an Assembly Production Supervisor and thought I would retire doing so. Then one day, out of the blue, we were told the company was closing its doors. 500 people were to find jobs. What a shock to all to have our lives turned upside down, and have no say, no discussion. It was a done deal.
I wasn’t sure what I was going to do. All I knew was I wanted to work in a safe place with real people that wouldn’t just up and leave.
Well I feel like I fell into a pot of gold. It is such a joy to wake up every day, excited to get to work. Everyone is friendly, happy to be here, open to hear new thoughts and ideas and very supportive. I never thought I would take part in a company meeting that is held at the township park on the bay. Or play volleyball during break. It is so incredible to work for a business that cares for its employees first.
And then we try to give everything we can back to the company. It’s a full circle. It doesn’t feel like work. It feels like a family that is growing. We all help each other and learn and grow together. I tell people how they should be jealous of me.
When you work for a company that treats you so well, makes you feel comfortable in your surroundings, and ensures you have all the tools that you may need, it reflects in your customer relationships. Our customers get a sense of our enthusiasm and expertise when they talk with our staff. Real people that listen to their clients’ needs and work with them to achieve their goals.
It’s no wonder that Oneupweb is an award winning SEO/SEM company. What goes around comes around. Full circle.
