From Kevin’s Corner

It’s hard to believe that we’re already into the holidays.  As I reflect back on the year, we have a lot to be thankful for.   We continue to experience tremendous growth in revenue and employee headcount.   All of our business units are doing well, and I don’t see anything that’s going to change that in the near future.  It’s an exciting time to be a part of the Electricom team, and a lot of fun for me to personally watch the development of our talent business unit leaders to meet the challenges associated with that kind of growth.  I certainly can’t say thank you enough to our customers and employees who have allowed us to have another great year.  We are certainly blessed.

I recently heard a speaker that had an interesting take on saying ‘thank you’.  We’re conditioned to say thank you to people who should be thanking us.  We thank the sales clerk at a store or the waiter at a restaurant when they should be thanking us for our business, but many times don’t.  I often receive a lot of “Thank You’s” from our employees for increases in compensation or the various things that we do for them, and even from our customers for providing good service or hosting customer appreciation events.  It’s always great to hear thank you, but it’s also somewhat misplaced.  It’s our job to thank our customers for allowing us to serve their needs, and to thank our employees for the great job they do for ElectriCom.  The speaker’s advice for when a customer or employee thanks you, is to respond “It’s my Pleasure”.   ElectriCom, and I personally, have benefited far more from our customers and employees than we could ever repay, so again…THANK YOU!  And, if we have done anything where someone wants to express their gratitude, then it’s definitely been our pleasure.
