What can Jerry Springer teach your business?
We have all seen it on sick days at home or on holidays. You are relaxing on the couch hoping to sit back and watch some mindless TV only to have our sense of decency violated by cheers of “Jerry, Jerry” as we see the Jerry Springer show is on.
Although we never take it serious, how many times have we quickly turned off the TV as he is giving his “Final Thought” which is an attempt to make sense and legitimize the trash that was just on, then he says, “Until next time, take care of yourself, and each other.”
Normally by now I am knee deep into the value of our technological advantages and why you need to buy from Highlight Industries. But today, I want to talk about our people.
I remember the day I started at Highlight Industries and walked around meeting everyone in the place and trying to remember their names. Today, they are my family. What started as a quick walk through our facility in 2008 has become an hour long journey now when I am in town. We get caught up on each other’s children, health, trials, successes and failures. We are a mixed bag of people who have come together in a workplace and through cooperation produce a combined effect greater than the sum of our separate effects. You, the reader, are the benefactor of this relationship.
Over the years we have felt the full gambit of emotions together for our teammates, we have followed the advice of Jerry, we do try to take care of ourselves and each other at Highlight. It is not just a saying at Highlight Industries from top to bottom; it is our way of life. I hope that you can say the same for your place of employment.
