I have said to anyone who will listen – I work with the best people. They are the reason behind any success we’ve enjoyed. They’re thoughtful, creative, courteous and come in every day wanting to do the best they can and treat others as they would like to be treated.
So I should not have been surprised, but definitely was, when a large gathering of associates (like 200+!) formed outside my cube today – all to wish me a happy birthday and offer congratulations (and have a good laugh about…) my recent inclusion on a ‘hot list’ in our industry (I know, my name and ‘hot’ in the same sentence…makes me laugh too!).
There was cake, ice cream, some gag gifts, but best of all a real barbershop quartet to seranade everyone. The fact that one of the voices in the quartet is our own Orien (or Big O) from our web development team made it all the better. The guys hit it out of the park!
If you work with us, these are the folks who are here to support you – and as you can see you, and I, are in good hands.
