I really am, truly thankful for my job at Holloway Sportswear. Yes, I am thankful for the paycheck that gets deposited automatically every week, but it really is more than that. Holloway is a company that is very customer focused yet still keeps employees best interests at hand. For example, this Holiday season, many businesses have decided to stay open on Thanksgiving Day. With Holloway, it was never considered. Now – I know, our business model is a little different being that we don’t sell direct to the consumer, however many of our customers are small business owners, who may be working over the Holiday who may have a rush order, to get caught up or just because. But the balance of family and work is still an important value that our leadership has sight of.
Being fairly new to Holloway (almost 2 years), I wanted to know if some of my colleagues felt the same way. So I took a quick, random poll this week. And you will see many more reasons below on why we are thankful for a great place to work…..
“Last week I attended my brother in laws freshmen basketball game. It was the beginning of the season and the team struggled to run new plays and find their rhythm. It was a tough game to watch, but easy to see the beauty in the team’s struggles. The team is embarking on the journey of a new season. Over the next few months, they will improve and gel as a unit. The season will undoubtedly bring triumph and challenge. It will certainly test and build character of these young men. As I looked around on the gym and on the court, Holloway apparel was everywhere. I could not help feel a sense of pride. I am incredibly thankful to have a career that contributes to the lessons learned as part of the team experience.” – Brad Sullivan, Strategic Marketing Manager
