Living Our Purpose


T he new year provides the perfect opportunity to reflect on 2018. On personal and professional levels, we’ve had accomplishments and challeng- es over the past year. One challenge that has become very real across the U.S. in many professions — electricians, woodworkers, and even window and door services — is an extreme shortage of workers. At Kelly Window & Door, we’re rising to meet this challenge. Our purpose — “Serving People Well” — and our core values inform everything we do.“This year is the biggest year we’ve had,” Owner Mike Kelly says. “We’ve had a lot of great clients choosing us for their window and door projects.”With potential clients wanting our service, our company has tackled the worker shortage challenge with enthusiasm. Our training programs develop our team members into hardworking craftsmen, allowing them to pro- vide the customer service our clients deserve. When we hire a new employee, our team leaders work hard to train them to learn our core values and purpose by heart. As a company, we’re quickly growing, and we need high-quality individuals who are ready and willing to serve people well. “You can’t roll out of bed and suddenly decide you’re going to serve people well. It takes effort and maintenance every single day. You have to do it over and over again to get outstanding results.”

and companies that throw Christmas parties, but it can be a hard to get everyone together. That’s why we prefer to have an appreciation dinner around Thanksgiving. It’s important for us to take the time during the holidays to thank everyone who works here and lives our purpose and core values. They’re all such outstanding people.” Our training and programs wouldn’t be successful if we didn’t have team members willing to put time and effort into them.“You can’t roll out of bed and suddenly decide you’re going to serve people well. It takes effort and maintenance every single day. You have to do it over and over again to get outstanding results.”

“When I talk about getting everyone here to use our seven values and to follow our purpose of serving people well, I mean to use each of them as a meas- uring stick for everything we do,” Kelly states. In our office, all the questions asked and choices made are aligned with our seven values — Positive Attitude, In- tegrity, Teamwork, Consistency, Humble, Hungry, and Smart. “If someone is faced with a question, we set it next to each of our core values. If the answer aligns with them, roll with it. If not, do something different.” Because our staff puts so much effort into serving people well, it’s only natural that we thank them in the best way we can. “There are a lot of businesses

Everything You’ll Need for an Ugly Sweater Christmas PAGE 4


It’s speculated that the first ugly sweater party took place in Vancouver, Canada, back in 2001. Since then, the trend has become one of the most popular holiday party themes. Come Thanksgiving, you’ll start to see racks in all types of clothing stores lined with hideous sweaters. If you’re ready to jump on the ugly-sweater-party bandwagon this Christmas season, here a few things to keep in mind.

Your Very Own Ugly Sweater Ugly sweaters come in all shapes, sizes, and prices. You can head to H&M or a local thrift store to pick one up. However, if you have a sweater that’s been cozied up for years in the back of your closet or a drawer, now’s your chance to give it new life. Arm yourself with a hot glue gun, thread, and needle, and patch Santa, Rudolph, or Frosty on it. And let it be known that an ugly sweater isn’t complete without sparkles, beads, and sequins galore. What Exactly Is an Ugly Sweater Party? It’s rather simple — slip on your favorite Christmas sweater, gather all your friends and

family members, make sure there are plenty of refreshments and games, and you’re guaranteed to have a top-tier party. A few ugly-sweater- themed games that should be on the agenda include an ugly gift exchange, which is similar to the white elephant exchange, except with the gaudiest gifts you can find; an ugly photo booth, complete with terrible, tacky props; and, of course, an ugly sweater contest. This is the only time of year when slipping into a lurid red sweater with a stuffed Santa sewn on the front is considered trendy. So adorn yourself in the frumpiest, tackiest sweater you can find, and have some fun this December!
