Teamwork: Being New at EDiS Company

I like baseball and my two boys (young men now), really enjoy playing baseball.  The more I watch the game, the more I realize how important all the players on the field are.  Sometimes, I see one person that never gets the ball hit to them and, if I didn’t know any better, it would seem like they were not participating in the game.  The reality is that they are always moving to back up each other.  Another thing I notice is that they are encouraging one another in all situations.  This is due, in part, to the maturity of the team and the leadership of their coaches.  Sometimes, after a win or loss, I have asked my boys ‘do you like this team?’ and ‘do you want to be a part of this team next year?’ Their answer is ‘yes’. There is a lot to be said for belonging to an organization that cares and encourages one another through strong teamwork and dedicated leadership.

In November of 2011, I was excited to be hired as the safety manager for EDiS.  Before I even arrived, I was receiving phone calls welcoming me to the company.  On my first day, I was greeted with smiles, cards and handshakes.  The staff was very friendly and helpful, my office was ready and a plan for getting started was in place.  As a safety manager, one of your fears is that you will be all alone in the day-to-day operations of your work.  The reality is, at EDiS, safety is a concept that is supported by everyone in the company.  I can say the reason for this is because the people here care about others: working at EDiS is like being part of a family that cares for one another.  On more than one occasion, the staff (or should I say family) here greeted me with “Welcome to the Family”.  I know it took a lot of people to prepare for my arrival, and they all worked together to make my stay enjoyable.  There hasn’t been a day where I feel I am working alone.

I am looking forward to my career at EDiS Company and I feel like I am part of a team that cares and encourages one another.  I have been part of situations where everyone is moving to back each other up.  So, now I ask myself: ‘do you like this team?’,  ‘Do you want to be a part of this team?’  The answer is ‘yes’ because there is a lot to be said for belonging to an organization that cares and encourages one another through strong teamwork and dedicated leadership.
