What can I possibly say about Brother after being here for 25 years this coming April? Today, they are a part of me; my children grew up knowing only Brother.
From the moment I was hired I felt the warmth and the belief they had in me, the commitment they’ve showed towards my growth and development have made me the longest standing employee at Brother Canada.
I started as a receptionist in our humble office in Ville St-Laurent. My desk was actually underneath a staircase but I didn’t care because my supervisor from day one welcomed me with genuine pleasure and gave me reassurance that with my talent and dedication many other doors would open for me with this organization….and, indeed these doors did open.
6 Presidents later, 19 bosses later I am here in a managerial position, a President Award recipient, and enjoying every moment along with all my colleagues and teammates and I surely hope to be here for much longer.
To all of you, I say, work hard, work well, be honest and many doors will open for you too, because this is what Brother is all about…appreciating and giving back.
It has been almost 3 years since I joined the Brother family and I say family because since day one, that was the feeling I had.
Everyone welcomed and embraced me as part of the team and since then, I have had the opportunity to learn and grow as a professional but also as a person. My manager is an excellent and talented professional from whom, I have been learning a lot and who makes me feel appreciated and recognized.
It is a very stimulating work environment and very open to receive comments and suggestions about how to improve processes, programs or information we provide to our resellers. The company is always looking for better ways and programs to support and reward employees.
I was not surprised when we received a Global Certification for our Customer Service or when we are honored recipients of prestigious international awards because each process has been designed to make a difference and has a positive impact on our customer. Additionally every single person is committed to the organization… and that plays a distinctive role that our customers can perceive from their first contact with the company.
I am very proud to be part of this family!
Before joining Brother more than six years ago, I could not imagine working for such a big company.
I was surprised to find out that the company shares part of its yearly profit with all its employees, regardless of their position. I never experienced this before.
Brother rewards its commendable employees in providing a President Award program. The award is given every year to many employees from different levels. The company also offers a program recognizing the employee’s years of service as well as many other activities throughout the year.
Furthermore, we work in a clean and secure environment. We are offered opportunities to grow on a professional level.
Finally, I am proud to say that I work at Brother, a great company with a promising future.
