Over the last few days I’ve had the privilege of both facilitating and being a participant in a set of trainings at my company. Here are some observations:

  • During a session, the employees went through introductions and told us their years of service. In one group we had associates with 14, 22, 10, 13 and 8 years of service!
  • With associates with such long tenures the traditions of the company get passed to new joiners through the stories they tell – and some of them are doozies!
  • What does it tell you about our company when an employee with 29 years of service still signs up for a continuing education session?

As an employee with 3 months of service this experience opened my eyes to the potential of an organization that invests in its employees and gets loyalty in return (along with all the benefits that come with it!)
