“I liked them so much, I joined them,” said a current project manager who worked closely with our team during his previous job.
This quote exemplifies how we at Spring value a community that extends beyond our team. The individuals we serve are a piece of that community. We are built on teamwork, beginning by treating customers like they are a part of our team. Our shared purpose: “To Have Fun Building Legacies Together,” guides our actions daily. These characteristics contribute to our company culture.
Finding a company whose culture aligns with your views is highly sought after when looking for a new job. Company culture can be defined as a set of shared values, goals, attitudes that characterize an organization. Although we have set values as a company, the values are steered not only by the company’s leaders; but also through our employees’ unspoken behavior.
Many companies are facing new challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic. According to the Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research, “42% of the U.S. labor force works from home full-time.” A significant concern among leaders is the continuation of collaboration and communication between co-workers while working from home. We confront this issue by celebrating each other’s successes through company-wide meetings where each department has the opportunity to share highlights from projects, employee recognition, and company news. We cheer each other on and take pride in everything we do. We are always there for one another and strive to sharpen our team. Virtual team events also occur throughout the week, creating time for team members to pause their work to build relationships. Over the past few months, our leaders have ensured that employees have the tools to continue to succeed in their role, whether that be a computer monitor for their home office or extra hand sanitizer and a face mask for on-site.
According to the 2020 MHI Industry Report, “56% of companies find it challenging to hire or retain qualified workers.” Company culture is essential in the retention of employees in this fast-growing industry. We are excited to continue to grow as a team and as individuals. Are you looking for a new opportunity in Material Handling? Reach out to us today.
