Better or worse?

One of the questions you are asked each year in our annual plant survey is whether you are clear about what is expected of you.

Years ago, when I was an HR Pro, I worked with supervisors and managers to find a way to summarize what we look for from our employees.  We came up with a list of 10 Commitments that we would like each team member to embrace. You may have seen them printed up somewhere in your facility.

When it comes to a job

In a Harvard Business Review article written by Lori Goler, Janelle Gale, Brynn Harrington and Adam Grant, the authors referred to some surveys they do at Facebook which collects information on what their employees want.

According to the authors, they found very little difference among employees of all ages and occupations. When it comes to a job, every employee seeks a career, a community, and a cause.

Career means meaningful work. They want their job to matter.

A reward- nicotine rush.

“You reap what you sow.”

“You reap what you sow.”

In the Bible, they call that the Law of the Harvest. The idea is that we can only expect the fruit that comes from the seed you sow.

Sowing is a planting term. It suggests that you “cast” seed “broadly.” So, the harvest we receive someday will depend on how much and what kind of seed you sow today.

Notes from PalletOne CEO Howe Wallace

This too shall pass

I’ve been asked at times, what do you know now that you wished you knew when you were beginning your career?

My short answer:

“This too shall pass.”

Here’s what I mean by that: when you are young, and you suffer setbacks, the setbacks can seem really big and daunting. You can imagine the setback will be fatal. You find it difficult to believe there will be better days again.
