I work for a great company. It is the kind of company that really does care about its workers. The couple who own it know every single person who works here, from the top executive all the way to the janitorial team. Each person is treated with respect as well, which is rare for any company today. Working for a company like this means that we have some awesome holiday parties. This past Christmas, the owners hired a video production company in Singapore to create a video that was shown right before dinner.
One of the reasons why they wanted this video shown was because it showcases what is most important to them, after their faith, which was us, the workers who make the company what it is. None of us knew that this was going to happen, even though we did see people videotaping us from time to time this past year. We just figured that the owners were up to something, never imagining that it was in prep for creating a video that was extremely touching. The owners had explained to the video production company exactly what they wanted, and the video team was able to deliver above and beyond.
What made this video so interesting is that it really showed the heart and soul of the company. We are not numbers here. We each have a name, a family, a story, and the owners wanted that showcased. We were able to catch personal glimpses into each other’s lives with this video, which really meant a lot to all of us. The essence of who we are was created on this video, and it made us all appreciate our bosses even more since they make that a priority for everyone in the company. We were all given a copy of the video along with an extremely generous bonus, and most of us actually treasured the video more!
