We have a tradition at our house that once we sit down for the Thanksgiving meal, we go around the table and talk about the things we are truly thankful for. I’ve thought about this often and would like to do the same for my Gator Gypsum family.
I’m thankful that the economy continues to provide opportunities for us and for our customers. A boom in the residential and commercial construction markets keep our trucks, employees and customers extremely busy. I’m also thankful to work for a company that sees value in the continual education and training of its workforce. New products and ideas are brought into the workforce daily, and Gator Gypsum strives to stay on top of any technology that will make our operation run smoothly.
I’m thankful that my company puts the safety of its employees and customers as priority number one. Our weekly safety meetings reinforce ideas that we use every day to make sure our employees end each workday safely. I’m thankful to come to a job in the morning staffed by a team that truly cares about the success of our fellow workers and clients. And finally, I’m thankful that my company encourages the growth and development of all of its employees.
When your expectations of an employer are exceeded on a daily basis, everybody wins. Happy workers translate to highly dedicated employees who enjoy going above and beyond for their customers. At Gator Gypsum Thanksgiving is not a November thing, but rather a 24/7 365 thing.
