Time for Reflection

Company is known for treating one another within our family as more than mere workers. We celebrate each others' gifts to the organization and support one another with opportunity of thought. It's common for each group gathering or meeting to start with a reflection - either a reading, a poem, short story, a picture or even a video. Taking time for reflection allows participants to ground and center themselves to focus on what the gathering's purpose is... or to just gather thoughts of how their actions and words contribute to our core mission of serving all, and especially those who are poor and vulnerable.
