For instance, you're, the employee, expanding your horizons all the while putting money in your pocket and the employers.
On my second week of starting at Austin Communication Group they sprung the idea of a business trip. Being it was my second week here I was obviously excited and thrilled they'd invite a new hire to travel. I actually was promoted on our trip to McAllen, TX. Which, was so much fun and a great learning experience for me!
Since I've been here, I've seen our team go to Dallas, Oklahoma, McAllen, San Antonio, and San Francisco, yes California and I've also seen offices from different parts of the country come visit our office to see what tricks we pull to be number one. NUMBER ONE. In the nation. Yeah... We're kind of a big deal...
Since moving to Austin on July 27th to now, I can say I've been to Los Angeles, CA for 3 days, San Antonio, TX for a week and just spent a week in McAllen, TX. That's 2 1/2 weeks of travel which I LOVE.
Having the opportunity to go on these trips is so rewarding! It's a great way to step up as a leader and have others promoted into leadership! That's why when a trip is sprung up I'm the first one to raise my hand and say "ME! I want to go! Pick me!" (Not really, I usually flash a look towards Neha's way and she knows)
Not to mention you're stuck in a room with 3 girls and you're bound to make forever friendships!
Which leads to happiness and happy employees= happy office. Right? The following week will be a business trip to Houston, H-Town! It'll be a great way for our leaders to step up and show us how to run a successful trip down there! (Wish I was going, love that city!)
I'll be staying back and enjoying our Week of Smiles!! I don't know about the rest of the office but I'm ready for my cheeks to hurt from so much smiling I'll be doing!
