From the 1-800-SWEEPER Newsroom: New Initiative To Recognize Military Service


Although we often focus on the equipment and technology that forms the backbone of our fleets, at the end of the day, the sweeping business is a service oriented endeavor, and the most important part of our businesses is our staff.  Without the right people in place, even the most modern and up-to-date equipment is of little use.   And while we all have numerous talented and gifted employees on our payrolls, there is one special group of employees that deserve extra thanks:  our veterans.  To this end, the board of 1-800-SWEEPER has adopted a new initiative to recognize the service of our veteran employees.

Each month, we will honor the contributions and sacrifices an employee has made to protect our freedoms and highlight how skills learned while serving our country translate to civilian life.  For those of us making hiring decisions, we encourage you to read this portion of our blog on a regular basis, and consider hiring a vet.  Their leadership skills, work ethic, and can-do mentality get things done.  These character traits make for excellent employees.  In addition to finding a valuable new team member, you’ll be paying it forward and quietly thanking a special group that has done so much for us all.

If you would like to nominate one of your employees for their military service and explain how this individual makes an impact on your day-to-day operations, feel free to drop Carolyn Bell a quick note and we will make arrangements to include your employee in this regularly featured column.
