Hire Good People

As an HR manager, I certainly strive to hire “good people”.  But, what does that really mean?  Good at their job, good at working with others, good at communicating, or just plain good?  In all honestly, we actually hope for all of the above.  We also hope that working at InfoTrust can continue to promote and develop not only technical work skills but also their “being a good person” skills.

One way we look to develop our “good person” skills is to look outwards to the community.  Once a quarter, we all leave the office and go onsite to volunteer.  Last quarter, we all went down to the FreeStore/FoodBank.  We were humbled to be able to restock food and help out with such a worthy cause.  I’m even more excited about this quarter’s event because the whole office is coming out to support my charity, Paige’s Princess Run 5k (www.paigesprincessrun.com)!

It is so important to our culture to connect with the community and remember that we do not exist in the vacuum of our office.  We often times cite the Girl Scout motto of “leaving a place better than how we found it”.  We subscribe to that when dealing with our customers as well.  We want to help organizations be better.   Not only is giving back a fundamental responsibility (remember what Spiderman’s Uncle Ben tells him, “with great power, comes great responsibility”), it is a way to build character and respect among your company.

So, it’s a telling sign of our corporate culture that we are committed to servicing the community and quoting Spiderman movies.  Here are some tips for getting your company involved:

â—Is there any personal connection?  Passion is contagious (see me for example dragging the InfoTrust gang to our 5k).  If there is a charitable organization that a team member suggests, pursue it.

â—Go onsite to help.  Try to find an event or organization where your team can actually go and serve.

â—Stay local.  To the above point and beyond, charity starts in your own area.  There are thousands of local organizations in the Cincinnati area.

â—Shut down the office if possible.  Nothing screams commitment like closing the office for a few hours so every team member can attend the community service event.

â—Keep it up.  Make it a quarterly goal to plan and implement one community service event per quarter.

Help us help you!  If you know of a great cause or charity that the InfoTrust team can descend upon and help for few hours, please email me the details at heather@infotrustllc.com
