We Broke Holiday Tradition and Our Staff Cried
At our annual holiday party, we’ve always given an award to our top performing salesperson. It seemed fitting, as our sales team is crucial to our success. After all, the relationships they build with dealerships across the country give us the opportunity to serve more customers.
Still, every year we found ourselves struggling with the award. So many members of the Beacon family deserved recognition, why weren’t they eligible? This year, we made a much-needed change.
Now, all employees are eligible, regardless of their role. Aptly titled the Beacon Award, this award is granted to an employee who shines above the rest. Their leadership and passion not only set an example for others, it guides our company forward in the right direction. Now, all employees are eligible, whether they are on the sales team or not.
There were few dry eyes in the room when we announced the recipient of this year’s Beacon Award. The winner, our office manager Renee Robinson Lait, is a true leader in every sense of the word.
Renee’s the first person in the office in the morning, her bright smile and infectious good mood set the tone for the day. She’s relentlessly positive, even in the face of challenges. Our company would not be the same without Renee’s heart, humility, and fierce dedication. She brings her best self to the office every day and in doing so, makes us a better organization.
Thank you, Renee! You set the bar high and we’re so grateful to have you!
