One of the competitive advantages to Great Workplace Culture is the ability to attract and retain top talent. Sean Waters is an example of this.
He was successful in his previous organization, but it didn’t afford the type of work / life balance that he was seeking. Clickstop did.
We strive to maintain and drive an entrepreneurial environment where strengths and cultural fit create opportunities for those who seek them. He didn’t arrive with a background in sales, but he was fully capable of finding success in that type of role. That’s where his Clickstop journey began – US Cargo Control Sales.
As time went on, an opportunity to more fully align his strengths came to be. He joined the Accelerator team with a focus on Sales and Service.
Building on his talents and challenging himself to grow has resulted in a team member who more readily drives and embraces change. We all have opportunities for growth, and it’s our responsibility to own them. Sean is doing just that. He’s being opportunistic with his personal and professional development and driving great results for our organization.
During Q2, he was on a call with a Pepper Joe’s customer and recognized there may be an opportunity to tie-in business for one of our other brands. As a result, that brand has a new category of product and is already generating revenue.
Well done, Sean!
