Being a part of a company that’s forward-thinking really allows you to bring new and innovative ideas to the workplace. Looking at things from a different angle and learning from someone else’s perspective and where they come from. Try to see things in people that they don’t
see in themselves and give them encouragement. And really embrace the power of diversity and the power of diverse thought. And really help unleash the power of innovations. We love challenges, to be honest, because they always help us develop new innovative ideas. If people have that fearless approach I think that ultimately makes our company more successful. You can’t be afraid to have an opinion. I definitely feel like I have a voice. I feel very supported in what I do. I really feel empowered, and feel that the work that I’m doing really matters, and is really ultimately driving our purpose. That… that’s our identity. That is actually key for us. I do feel a responsibility to make this world a better place, moving towards a much more sustainable solution. With our community, and with our society, we have a role to help one another… to solve large social problems… reaching out to the community… investing in our people and investing our products in the local regions. I think that’s our duty, but it’s also an opportunity for us. This leads to better results at work. And to make this happen, you know, it’s a great dream. And I’m so motivated by that. The best thing, for me, is feeling like you’re a part of something really important. That’s what drives me. I like to look at the company and say, “Wow, that’s a very inclusive company. They’re innovative… they’re on the cutting edge of technology… and that’s a place that I can see myself working
at.” This company is Stanley Black & Decker.
