You’ve heard the saying “Do what you love to do, and you’ll never work a day in your life.” This saying is incredibly true, and in my opinion, AMEND makes it extremely easy to love what you do.
AMEND – A Truly Unique Company
AMEND is one of the most unique companies I have ever come across and that is why I decided to join the team.
The two most important factors for me when looking for an organization to be a part of were 1) the work, and 2) the culture. The work had to be challenging and engaging, and the culture needed to promote an environment I could fit into.
AMEND excelled in both of these areas.
When it comes to the work, I’ve been engaged and challenged since day one.
I was put in charge of an ERP system conversion at one client, and optimizing a printing process at another – during my first week!
These projects are incredible, especially for someone who just joined the organization. Very few other places, if any, provide such a high level of responsibility and client exposure…during the first week!
The opportunities AMEND provides are second to none.
The work is great, however, the part of AMEND that really sticks out in my mind is the culture.
Growing up in Cincinnati, I have been exposed to the family atmosphere the city embraces. We are a close-knit community that loves seeing each other succeed. Many, including myself, say this is the “smallest, big city in the world.”
AMEND successfully channels their Cincinnati roots through every facet of the company.
All members of the team support one another and understand that if each individual succeeds, then we as AMEND will be able to provide the most value to our clients.
A few of my favorite cultural pieces are:
- The running Team Appreciation group text that gives recognition to team members that are performing at a high level.
- Our scheduled, informal office get-togethers where we play ping pong and connect outside of a work setting.
- The Individual Development Plans (IDPs) we each create to ensure we are continually growing and developing.
- And, my personal favorite, The Big Four Check-Ins. These meetings are designed to ensure we are doing well physically, mentally, spiritually, and socially. AMEND cares about its members holistically, and to me, that is pretty special.
The Work Is Engaging. The Culture Is Inspiring.
AMEND does amazing work and has one of the strongest company cultures I have ever witnessed.
The work opportunities drew me in the door, but the family environment is what keeps me around.
When you are given the opportunity to work on engaging projects within an organization of amazing individuals, you quickly begin to love what you do. And when that happens, you find yourself excited to wake up in the morning, excited to tackle the days’ challenges, and excited that your “work” day does not feel like work at all.
