We’re Here to Make Good Things Happen For Other People April 29, 2020

Just when you start to wonder what your purpose at work and in life might be, we get a reminder. Here at TYGES, we were recently reminded of why our mission at TYGES is “We’re here to make good things happen for other people.” 

Last week, two of our outstanding associates – Peggie Arvidson and Josh Vaught were sent a reminder from an individual they were interacting with as they continue to work on searches for their clients.

This text that Josh received is pretty self-explanatory-

“It was on my heart to say this to you. I have never met you personally.  With that being said, I want to thank you again. Not for the phone interview but for the help that you provided regarding my resume and interviewing. That had touched me so much that when I got off the phone with you it made me very emotional. You did not have to go the extra mile but you chose to. Even if things don’t go as planned, I just wanted to let you know I really appreciate everything you and Ms. Peggie have done for me in just this short time. Keep being GREAT Josh.”

So, what can we do as recruiters during this time? We can keep doing our jobs. We can keep engaging with people and treating everyone with the respect they deserve. We can keep following our process.

This is a great example of living out our mission set by both Josh & Peggie. It’s not about placements. It’s not about money. It’s about humanity and leaning into the mission. Our process, systems, and people are all set up to lean into the mission, “We’re here to make good things happen for other people.”

Thank you for this reminder!
