So Sweet — Transplace Turns 16!
By: Jessica Lynch, Vice President of HR, Transplace
July is a sweet month for us as Transplace is celebrating our 16th anniversary as a company! Throughout the month, we’ll be sharing our “Sweet 16” with you here on Logistically Speaking in a number of ways. Since there would be no Transplace without its amazing people, we thought that it would be appropriate to focus on our employees at Team Transplace for this anniversary. In particular, we’ll be highlighting some of our internal employee programs, showcasing success stories about how our people have gone above and beyond as well as sharing some interesting stats about the internal makeup of Team Transplace.
What Team Transplace Means to Me
I’ve been working at Transplace for 14 years, and for me, it’s truly about the people. At every level, from the young members of our Professional Development Program to our leadership team, those who work at Transplace truly strive to excel. For me, working here means knowing that we truly live out our core values. We hold each other accountable for these values, and it’s important to us that we challenge ourselves to continually think of the customer first. Stressed by leadership and across the company is to treat employees with respect, which has in turn, led to them wanting to excel at their job of taking care of customers. To our customers, this directly translates into improved financial performance, operational excellence and confidence and peace of mind in us as your partner. It’s our employees who execute projects for our customers and always push themselves to do better, and we annually document how much savings we’ve given to our customers through these enhanced processes. What makes Transplace great is the fact that we don’t settle for status quo and we’re never satisfied, and this shines through in how our employees are constantly striving to, “Thrill the Customer.”
Employee Growth and Responsibility
At Transplace, we encourage employees to grow and take on more responsibility through a natural career progression. We have a number of employees who began within one account team at Transplace and quickly moved up into a senior management role. We believe it’s important to share these stories and award those who are excelling at what they do.
We’ll be sharing more details about the various Transplace recognition programs that are designed to:
- Reward employee contributions that align to the Mission, Core Values, Leadership Principles and Corporate Goals at Transplace
- Provide employees visibility into eligibility, participation and nomination mechanics
- Vary from broad participation to highly selective and very meaningful rewards to highlight outstanding employee performance
So stay tuned for more Sweet 16 posts to come all month long featuring different employee programs, highlights of our company and true stories about our amazing top employees!
