Team Stories: Respect for Others
"Demonstrating our core value of respect for others, Rob Sieracki specifically comes to mind. Time and time again Rob puts others above himself, and spends a great deal of his time serving as the go-to guy when there's a question, problem or crisis. Rob extends his hand to help others within the company on a daily basis, bearing the tremendous task of being accommodating for nearly every employee. Not only that, Rob also serves as a friend and companion outside work for anyone open to it. Most recently, Rob closed a monumental business deal and came into work on a day he was supposed to be on vacation (he does this frequently). Eager to tell everyone the great news, Rob was immediately confronted with a problem that stole the thunder of his great news. Rather than expressing frustration—Rob was understanding. To boot, he put himself aside to help the situation."

"Something I love about our team is that respect for others permeates our culture. Throughout our organization, I have seen this core value reinforced. Respect and consideration flows from the management level out to the rest of the teams. In every decision I've been able to listen in on or take part of, I've been impressed with how everyone, from Jeff on out to green analysts; takes the needs of stakeholders in their decisions into consideration. Our culture is keyed into the idea that decisions aren't made in a vacuum, and every choice has stakeholders who are impacted. It is this critical concept that helps to make things run so well here – everyone knows that even if they don't directly benefit from a decision, each person affected has been considered and has merit. It's a culture unlike any I've seen before, and one that I'm extremely proud to be a part of."

"I love the Primary Aims that BizLab have you complete when you are first hired. It gives you a sense that the people you are working with really care about your own personal values and your dreams. BizLab also sticks to their words about putting people where people belong. They want you to use your career here as a place where you want to be. By uncovering these goals and motivators they respect the persons feelings and goals, and make opportunities for team members to work in their strengths, rather than be stuck in a position that isn't right for them. I remember when I went over my primary aim with my manager, he really internalized it. Over a year later he still refers to some of my main goals and how he can help me achieve them!"
