As a newer employee at The DAVIS Companies I have slowly begun to experience all of the ways that the company gives back to the community. Not only do we give back to the community, but also to the hardworking people who go to work every day representing DAVIS.
As the HR Administrator of the Atlanta branch I have the pleasure of doing the onboarding paperwork with all of our new hires. The amount of appreciation and excitement that comes into the office daily truly makes every day a great day. Nothing beats the excitement of starting a new job – except maybe our annual Thanksgiving Dinner giveaway!
Each year DAVIS shows appreciation to all of our hard-working employees by giving away Thanksgiving Dinners across the country. We ask our employees at our client sites “What are you Thankful for?” and the response is overwhelming. On the Monday before Thanksgiving I was given the task of shopping for Thanksgiving meals for two winners of the annual giveaway. After reading their responses about what they are thankful for it was an easy task.
I have never worked for a company that does so much for not only their internal employees, but the community as well. Showing up at their places of employment with beautiful gift baskets and seeing their faces light up was absolutely priceless.
Fortunately, for one of my stops our DAVIS recruiter was able to tag along. The employee expressed his gratitude for all of her help in his job hunt and she was able to see him in action in the position she placed him in. It was one of the most heartwarming experiences I have been a part of and I hope to do it all again next year.
We hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
