Markey's Staff Celebrates, Reflects, and Envisions the Future

Markey’s kicked off the new year with a special company-wide meeting dubbed “Celebrating Our Successes.”  It’s not often that all of Markey’s can come together in this fashion, due to the nature and hours of our business and the fact that we are in different offices throughout the Midwest, but everyone was committed to participating wherever possible. Half of our employees were scheduled for January 3,  the rest for January 7; offices in other states participated via video stream.   The meeting garnered 87% attendance rate, which was particularly impressive considering the blizzard-like conditions in the Midwest that week.

We provided time for employees to personally and publicly thank their co-workers, and many heartfelt kudos were given. We also spent a great deal of time discussing what we as a company would like to improve upon in the next 12 months, based upon the results of a survey taken before the company meeting. The survey responses were truly thoughtful, and they provided a solid springboard for conversations that will result in new ways of doing business, so we can continue to provide the high level of professional service that our customers have come to expect from us.
