Today we celebrate Employee Appreciation Day, a day to honor and celebrate our Custom Flag Company team. Twelve outstanding individuals make CFC who we are. Each team member plays an important role, is valued, and necessary for our success.
Our mission statement affirms: Custom Flag Company is a national leader in creating multiple opportunities for our customers to display their Spirit, Image and Visibility while providing an environment for employees to grow and make a difference in our community.
Our work environment, personal growth, professional development, and community service are the cornerstone of CFC culture. Recently, our staff participated in a sixteen-hour series, Dare to Lead, by Brene Brown. We identified our personal values, allowed ourselves to be vulnerable, and learned how to have tough conversations. We believe this training was invaluable to each of us individually, but will also contribute to our company’s overall success. Investing in our employees is important to build a well rounded company from the ground up.
Our core values include growth, trust, respect, balance, fun, transparency, family, community, efficiency, and relationships. These core values are not just writing on the wall, but an active part of our daily life. Each month our staff is assigned to one core value. Throughout the month, employees dive deep into their values. We discuss personal experiences, facilitate activities, and review articles that better explain our values. Most importantly, we consider how to make these values part of our everyday life. It is incredible to see what unfolds during the month.
The culture we have built over the past 20 years did not happen overnight. It has been a work in progress. As we celebrate the individuals that make up the Custom Flag Company team, my hope is that they feel valued and honored. Thank you, Chris, Sam, Donna, Maddi, Brent, Scott, Jennifer, Francisco, Carlos, Hunter, Shane, and Zack. Everyone in this all-star team works for each other, and that is a beautiful thing to see. I am proud and humbled by you all, and I just want to thank you from the bottom of my heart.
