When establishing our core values, we spent a lot of time looking at ourselves and our business practices. We tried to understand what made Quincy Recycle special. Throughout that process one thing that continued to rise to the top was our people. This core value, maybe more than any other, is reflective of that. So let’s look at what this really means.
Like any good team, we want to succeed together. That starts with getting the very best people possible and putting them in the right position. Once we have the right people in the right place, we need to provide them with the right tools. However, that’s not where the team stops. In fact, that’s just the groundwork. Creating a team is a lot more than just a collection of talent. Something that Quincy Recycle is incredibly proud of is the environment that we have created. That culture is one of true teamwork. Picking each other up, and having each other’s back. This starts from your first day with Quincy Recycle. We help each other, even if we aren’t even in the same facility. We rely on each other to do our part so that we all win.
Having a solid team is the first step in this core value. Taking that team from solid to phenomenal happens when we all have the same goal for our company. We are already an industry leader, but we don’t want to rest on our laurels. We continue to strive for more. We continue to innovate and find new ways to help our customers. We maintain a strong focus on safety to ensure that our team is able to operate at their best. We find new ways to connect with even more people and introduce them to the awesome team that we have created. By all of us working in harmony, we achieve so much more together. That’s what the One Dream is all about.
Lots of companies will talk about being a family. We know that. It would be easy to include this and not be genuine about it. That’s not what we do, and that is why we focus on our people so much. We build relationships that go beyond the walls of our facility. We care about what happens to each other, and we are there for each other in times of struggle or celebration.
You see, for us, this isn’t lip service. This is truly a core value for us, and something that we work every day to make a reality. We love our team, and we take great pride in not only being there for them, but in sharing our success with them.
