I’ve been selling for 42 years and had NEVER participated in Toastmasters until I came to work for Corus360. If you don’t know, Toastmasters is an organization that seeks to improve people’s communication skills by public speaking in a relaxed, friendly environment. People give speeches, the speakers get input on what they did well and suggestions for improvement, and everyone has a good time.
At Corus360, the backbone of our culture is hiring the brightest, most energetic people we can find. Once they’re here, we want them to stay, but, because of the quality of people we hire, we know some will outgrow their positions and some may leave for new opportunities. We’re committed to helping them grow and prepare for positions with greater responsibility within our organization or go elsewhere to spread their wings.
In today’s work environment, we hear so often that one of the benefits that employees desire is the ability to work remotely. Having worked many years for a Fortune 500 company that went from having everyone work from an assigned office to having most non-manufacturing employees work from home, me being one, and now working a smaller company, where most of our employees work from the office, I can see the pros and cons of both scenarios. Having the flexibility to go down to the basement for work saved money on gas and food.
