When I started working at TRIOSE in 2007, it was a much smaller organization. At that time our professional development consisted of learning on the job from each other and learning independently based on the time and task at hand – which, for a small group in a small office, worked quite well. And judging by the fact that we have 65 employees today, I can tell you that we were doing something (actually, a lot of things) right. What I didn’t know in 2007 was that we were laying the foundation for where we are today.
Training and development – in its various forms – has always been core to our business. It allows our employees to grow professionally, as well as personally, and take greater satisfaction in their roles. It makes us a better, smarter, more efficient organization. And it enables us to continually enhance the service and solutions we provide to our clients. As Ralph Waldo Emerson so clearly said, “Unless you try to do something beyond what you have already mastered, you will never grow.”
All of these reasons made it all the more significant when earlier this year I transitioned from my role in operations to become the Manager of TRIOSE’s newly created Corporate Training and Development department. This move represented a company-wide dedication – stemming directly from our CEO CJ Joyner and President Ira Tauber’s commitment to ongoing education – to formalize and expand the opportunities for professional development at TRIOSE. We are investing in our employees in a big way, knowing it will pay dividends for our people and ultimately for the healthcare systems we serve every day.
While our learning and development program is still in its early days, it is already on par with the efforts of much larger corporations. There are a number of highlights we can all be proud of, which include:
As we look to 2016 and beyond, TRIOSE is moving full steam ahead to offer innovative total logistics solutions – and with our dedicated focus on training and development, the company is better poised than ever to deliver.
