As a company, we have let down some of the most important people within our organization. Our hope is that this article will be a start in a more frequent occurrence of recognizing and appreciating those who are often overlooked at Pro Athlete and businesses around the world.
The group we are referring to is the family members of all the employees who work at Pro Athlete. They are rock stars day in and day out and never get the proper credit they deserve. There is no way we would be where we are today as a company (or as people) without our significant others, kids and all of our other family members. Just think of all the times they have stepped up to the plate and helped our team knock it out of the park:
Employee - “I can’t pick up the kids tonight because I am going to go throw horseshoes for the KC Corporate Challenge so we can win our 8th straight championship.”
Significant Other - “You better win then, because I don’t want to be married to someone who can’t win 8 straight!”
Employee - “We are going to work late on Tuesday evenings for the next 3 months so we can get our revised websites out in time for the busy season.”
Significant Other - “No problem, that sounds very important.”
Employee - “We are reorganizing our whole warehouse and I am going to go up and fold boxes on Saturday so we can get ahead.”
Significant Other - “Well, I know a way to get it done fast: I’ll help fold the boxes too!”
Employee - “I am having a hard time finding an insurance broker for the company.”
Significant Other - “Oh, you should use “Company X.” That is who we use and they are great!”
The past six years of significant others offering to help decorate the locker rooms or being our umpires at our company baseball games…for FREE! What!?
A son or daughter that just smiles and gives an employee a hug when they get home or a dog that pees on the carpet in excitement every time you walk in the door.
The list could go on and on, but the bottom line is that every single employee who has come through Pro Athlete has had help from their family in some form or fashion and we couldn’t be more thankful for that! Think of all the home runs that have been hit across the country and all the diving catches that have been made thanks to the assists from our family members.
From all of us here at Pro Athlete, we just want to say thank you:
You make us the people we are today and you give us the chance to make dreams come true for our customers. There is no way we could express how much we love you and appreciate all the times you have helped us over the years!
We Love you,
Pro Athlete Employees
