I found myself at the Hyatt Regency Reston in Virginia on Monday and Tuesday. I was there for this month’s territory-level meeting as an “employee hero”. Employee heroes are nominated and selected to represent the 12,000+ employees in that territory, which encompasses several states, based on their hard work, innovation and dedication.
It was an interesting trip, with lots of interaction with store managers, district leaders and territorial staff from around the country. Lots of ideas were presented and exchanged, in particular about the upcoming holiday season. It’s going to be a very busy time of the year, so the advanced planning and discussion was very helpful.
I’m glad to have been chosen as one of the twenty-eight store-level employees to participate and look forward to a future chance to go again.
