Months ago, Distribution Center employee James A. was thinking about his team of Managers and Supervisors and reflecting on everything these leaders do to make The Container Store a great place to work. “They do so much more than most people realize,” said James. “Not only do they guide and lead our teams every day, but they also take the time to connect with us on a deeper level – they often serve as life-coaches, confidantes, and many have become great friends. They do so much for us, I decided it was time to do something special to say ‘thank you’ to them!”
The result: a HUGE surprise “Thanksgiving” party honoring the whole Distribution Center leadership team. James and a small group of colleagues organized food and decorations, as well as special gift boxes for each of the Managers and Supervisors that contained a t-shirt with “Lovin’ our Leaders” on the front, and hand-written thank-you notes from their team members. They were so surprised!
