Bertch Cabinets has taken all 800 members of its staff on a cruise and I couldn’t be any more jealous, I’m finding it hard to even finish my work today.
Gary Bertch, the president of the company, wanted to thank them all in his own, crazy way and this was the best way to do it.
He explained that it should mean the staff can work EVEN HARDER next year. The Carnival cruiser will stop in Cozumel, Mexico and Key West, Florida.
He explained: “We’ve got four charter aircraft that will be flying directly to Miami Sunday and staying at a nice five-star hotel. Then on Monday, we’ll bus over from the hotel to the port and load up on the ship.”
“We just tried to get all of our people pumped up a little more to achieve the various goals, both customer-oriented goals and financial goals. We’re happy we were able to achieve our goals. And they’re never easy. The financial goal was the big one. We hit the other goals. Not by much. But we hit them. We’re looking forward to the following year.”
Well, that’s one way of encouraging your employees to work harder.
