Today represents a personal milestone: I have officially spent half of my life at Cadre!
Even though it is hard for me to believe, it is true. Cadre has been a part of my life for half of my life. We opened our doors in 1994, when I was 27!
Cadre (then known as Premier Staffing) started as a 3-person office, in a 400 sq. ft. office suite.
We had “put together desks”, two phone lines with call waiting, DOS-based computer software and very large white computer monitors sitting on our desks.
Suddenly here we are, almost 28 years later and yes, it DID go by fast!
If I wrote about everything I have reflected on concerning the past 28 years, this blog would never end. So instead, I will share what I consider to be the most important and consistent element:
As the saying goes, “there is no ‘I’ in Team”. I hit this personal milestone today with ease because of the amazing team members I am so fortunate to work with every day! Team Cadre has been instrumental in making me look forward to coming to work every day for almost 28 years! :o)
Side note, I am not the first team member to hit the “half of our lives we’ve been a part of Cadre” milestone anniversary. (It is a math formula, based the age one started at the company.)
There are three people before me, Cadre’s:
- Director of Client Services
And with an average tenure of 14 years, several other team members are just around the corner from reaching the milestone anniversary.
I am truly honored to be able to say that Cadre has been a part of my life for half of my life. Even after all these years, I am excited for every single day!
Bring it on! :o)
