Growth through Quality
The pledge of quality to our customers has always
been the main focus of our business. We strive to provide top quality
products and high levels of customer satisfaction. And we've found
the best way to do this is to make sure the customer always comes
To do this, Garon hires talented, competent people
who are, most importantly, enthusiastic, loyal, and committed team
players - people who are dedicated to providing top-level customer
service to both internal and external customers.
Value of Teamwork
Every member of the Garon staff works together as a team to make
sure that our customers are well taken care of. Because of this
team concept, our company has evolved a very different organizational
structure than most companies you may know.
Six Teams Cover Everything
At Garon, we have six teams, each with its own function to perform.
The teams run our business. They make the decisions. They work with
one another to solve problems and to increase efficiency. And because
the teams do the day-to-day work of the company, the decisions they
make are far more likely to meet the needs of our customers.
To run the business efficiently, the Garon team is
divided into smaller, self-directed teams
- a marketing team
- a new business development team
- a warehousing operations team
- a support team that handles both financial and
information technology requirements
- a human resource team
- and a sales team
Teamwork & Personal Growth
The job of all Garon team members is to interact with one another
to empower, communicate, educate and lead.
All of our teams are empowered to make the decisions
that will help us meet our goal of total customer care. This empowerment
means an open atmosphere that allows the free exchange of ideas.
The design of our offices reflects this kind of openness.
The result of this organizational structure
is a unique feeling of closeness among Garon team members. It is
a non-political environment. It is a family atmosphere in which
every team member is expected to treat other team members fairly.
Planning for Success
To maintain this level of team spirit, we need a high level of internal
communication. Part of that internal communication is to develop
an annual strategic plan that sets the objectives, strategies and
tactics to help us achieve our performance goal. Every Garon team
member has input into that planso that we all know where we
are headed and how we intend to get there.
Our Hiring Process
We spend a great deal of time with Garon team
candidates. It is the one thing we dont do quickly. If you
reach the final stages of our interview process, you probably will
have talked to most, if not all, the members of the Garon Team.
This is because hiring, like anything else at Garon, is a result
of team input.
We arent just filling a job. We are looking
for people who buy into the Garon philosophy. Were looking
for people who can make a difference to our company in terms of
long-term growth. We are looking for people, therefore, who believe
in teamwork and customer care.
As a Garon team member, you would get a competitive
salary and benefits package. And we think that working at Garon
would give you the chance for personal growth. If you are hired,
you would become part of the Garon team that has been committed
to serving its customers for 44 years and you will help us provide
even higher levels of customer care.
