I have heard that one of the reasons Wal-mart is so successful is that they take good care of their employees, strive to have a family like atmosphere between employees, and make sure that all of the employees take pride in their store. I had a glimpse of the Wal-mart pride yesterday morning.
Taking care of the farm also means taking care of my husband's sister, who is Grade 11. Basically this means riding around with her, since she has lots of places she needs to be before and after school and she has her learner's permit, but not her full driver's license yet.
So, yesterday she had band before school and I had Coffee Break at 9. So, she drove to school and then I did some errands in town before going to church for Coffee Break. I was glad that Wal-mart was open already, since most of what I needed to get, I could get there. I was wandering around, when an announcement came over the intercom that all the employees need to meet up front for a meeting. After a while, I was nearing the front of the store when I heard it: The Wal-mart Cheer.
I will admit that I laughed. I had never heard this cheer before and I found it really funny that adults were doing a cheer about the store they worked at. But, I do think it is pretty neat how they do it all over the world. And if is helps people to take pride in their work and make it a better place to shop, that is wonderful.
