ALL SORTS OF PEOPLE-POWERED: WHY DIVERSITY MAKES OUR ORGANIZATION BETTER

Posted by Megan Reinertson on August 7, 2021

Words gain power by those who give them power.  And, we interpret meaning by bringing our own internal factors into the mix.  Take the word diversity.  Many people see it categorized as a group of people who differentiate from one another by gender, race and religion.  But, diversity is so much more. 

We Are People Powered

When it comes to people, diversity includes backgrounds, experiences, skills, language, culture - the skies the limit.  Our differences make us interesting, and bring a multitude of insight to certain situations and opportunities.  Addressing problems to come up with the best solutions are successful when attacked from all different angles.  We are those different angles.

TNG Retail Services is an organization that prides itself on being people-powered, but not ONE SPECIFIC TYPE of 'people.'  We search for individuals with all different kinds of backgrounds who will fit with our ever-evolving challenges.  We take it upon ourselves to gather those who see success where other struggle, and we use their best practices.  We don't care what that person looks like or believes.  We care about team work and how that translates into our internal culture. 

So, how do we have such a strong foundation if everyone is so different?  We ask people:

Come As You Are.

"I am very artistic – actually love to create, draw, write, etc.  I’m an introvert and not very social at all.  I am a wife and mother of 3... I have not had an easy road. There have been many challenges and life lessons; each have made me stronger, and I am grateful each day [TNG Retail Services] said 'yes' to me. They took a risk, and I hope every day that I am giving them the best service. My role and remote access allows me the flexibility to do my job, [and be a wife and mother] and I’ll always be grateful to the company for the opportunity."
