Core Value #2.
Be Caring of Others – Mean People Suck, and They Don’t Work Here.
Empathy: the action of understanding, being aware of, being sensitive to, and vicariously experiencing the feelings, thoughts, and experience of another of either the past or present without having the feelings, thoughts, and experience fully communicated in an objectively explicit manner.
This is probably our most called upon core value. At BlueGrace Logistics, it is essential in our hiring process that we find empathy in our candidates. Whether an employee is working in sales or customer support, it is imperative to a business’ success that the people answering the phones and talking with prospects and customers, have some sort of empathetic trait.
Our team not only cares about eachother, we care for our carriers, vendors, clients and partners. We work best with those who have compassion for others and truly show it.
How We Show That We Care…
Tampa Bay Humane Society | Cats vs. Dogs – September 2015
Each year, BlueGrace Logistics female (cats) and male (dogs) employees compete against each other to collect the most pet food in pounds. The food is then donated to the Humane Society of Tampa Bay to care for the animals in the no-kill shelter. The food not only feeds the animals that call the shelter home, but is also used for their food assistance program “Animeals.” The “Animeals” program partners with “Meals on Wheels” of Tampa to deliver free pet food once a month to homebound and elderly residents on a fixed income in Hillsborough County.
Miles for Moffit | Run to Beat Cancer – May 2016
“It’s a huge part of who we are as an organization. Fundraising and participating in events like these, are engrained in our company culture,” said Courtney Smith, Manager of Culture & Engagment at BlueGrace Logistics.
BlueGrace Logistics Corporate may have sponsored the event, but what the employees did on their own was substantial and nothing short of amazing. Through small fundraising events in the office and making pledges through the Miles For Moffitt website, the company as a whole raised a total of $19,159.
Caring for Others | It’s What We Do
