Gents Place Values: Teamwork Makes The Dream Work
At The Gents Place, our values-based culture is top priority. Through the years we have found that aligning our brand with Team Members who share the same values is what leads to successful business and satisfied Members and Team Members.
In this ongoing series we share perspectives from The Gents Place Team Members on their favorite Gents Place Value. These are values that were crowd-sourced from our staff and help animate all the actions of our company. We use them in daily communications, contests, and as a way of life to ensure that coming to work isn’t an exercise in “changing into” values that only apply at The Gents Place, but rather a lifestyle that empowers our staff after they’ve gone home for the day and are interacting with their friends and family. We recently polled The Gents Place team to ask what their favorite value is and why they chose it. Below are some quotes from some of our staff who chose “Teamwork Makes the Dream Work” as their favorite value.
“I am a former quarterback and I know that each and every person is pertinent to everyone achieving a goal, so I believe in everyone pitching in their talents and efforts to do this!” – Isaac (1 year with TGP)
“I believe it take all of us to reach our goals. We all have different skills to bring to the table and all those put together make things happen quicker and more efficiently.”- Holly (8 years with TGP)
“It takes a village to raise a baby. The Gents Place is our baby! And it takes all of us to come together to make our Clubs successful!” – Shannon (4 months with TGP)
“Because I love working together to do our best at everything. Its amazing what we can achieve when we all work together.” – Jessica (1 year with TGP)
“Because without everyone working together (RCs, grooming specialists, barbers, front desk concierge) and being on the same page there would be ultimate chaos.” – Monique (4 months at TGP)
“Because it’s 100% true. If we all didn’t have each other’s back and help out, we all wouldn’t be as successful as we are!” – Ranata (2 years at TGP)
One of the most difficult challenges of running any business, not just a franchise, is finding engaged employees. From the quotes above it is evident how powerful hiring for cultural fit can be (many of those who shared their thoughts have been with us less than a year!) and why our Team Members are part of the amazing success The Gents Place has and continues to have.
