WE TAKE CARE OF OUR OWN AN AWARD FOR DOING THE RIGHT THING

“The highest reward for man’s toil is not what he gets for it, but what he becomes by it.”

“AS A COMPANY, WE BELIEVE WE TAKE BETTER CARE OF OUR CUSTOMERS WHEN WE ALSO TAKE CARE OF OUR OWN. HELPING OUT DURING STEVEN’S DEPLOYMENT WAS A CHANCE TO PUT THAT BELIEF TO PRACTICE. ” To us, these “favors” were simply the right things to do, and I honestly didn’t think twice about it. As a company, we believe we take better care of our customers when we also take care of our own. Helping out during Steven’s deployment was a chance to put that belief to practice. We don’t need a reward for doing it because knowing we stood by our people is reward enough. However, we were humbled and honored beyond belief when we heard that Steven had nominated us for a Patriotic Employer award from the U.S. Secretary of Defense. We had no clue he had done so until Brigadier General Seymour of the Georgia National Guard arrived at our office to present us with the award. Being honored with this award is one of the most meaningful events to happen to us recently. It’s a reminder that doing the right thing still holds weight in 2019. Most of all, this award means so much because the nomination came from Steven. That we were able to make his family’s life a little easier while he was making every American’s life safer is what really matters. It’s been amazing to see the response the award has generated around our office and on social media. I have to admit that it’s taken me a little by surprise. My philosophy is that a huge part of being a business owner is caring for your team. If you can’t do that, you’re not much of a leader. Thank you, Steven, both for your service and for nominating us for a Patriotic Employer award. We are honored and grateful to have you on our squad. –Morty Hodge

As many of you know, we take pride in employing America’s brave servicepeople. To us, it’s never been a question. Those who fight for our country are heroes in the truest sense, acting selflessly to defend our nation and ideals. If having these folks on staff requires holding their space and helping their families while they’re deployed, that’s a deal we’re willing to make every time. You can imagine our surprise when we were recognized for doing just that. One of our employees, Steven Holman, is also a proud member of the military. When he was recently deployed to the Middle East, we wished him well on his journey but certainly didn’t forget about him. While he was away, we wanted to do everything we could to help his loved ones back home. When their air-conditioning system faltered, we made sure to fix it — if we couldn’t do that, we better look for a new line of work! There was an issue with Steve’s military dental and vision insurance, so we covered his family members with our insurance. We also helped around the house by doing small projects and lending a hand where we could.
