Provide an example of how this organization has recently gone above and beyond for an employee, team or client/customer.Just this week White Wood Kitchen employees were treated to an evening of Axe throwing at House- Axe Throwing followed by dinner at Cork and Table in Plymouth. 17 White Wood Kitchens employees were treated to this fun event. It is always such a great opportunity for all employees to get together and meet in a fun out-of-work atmosphere. Employees have been treated to everything from trips to Nantucket to weekends in Boston. As an organization, we look forward to quality time outside of the workplace. Spouses and families are often invited which adds to our family atmosphere.
Communication is key, how effective is the organization at communication with their employees and/or client/customer? *Communication is a core principle behind White Wood Kitchens success. Sometimes we consider ourselves over communicators if that is possible. Whether it be with employee's , build partners, vendors or clients we pride ourselves on open transparent communication at all times. Our owners have invested in a software communication system where all employees are required to post daily. This keeps all members of our time updated on ongoing projects at all levels of the process. Keeping all Team Members in loop of ongoing projects is imperative in running smooth cohesive jobsites and projects.
