Pro Motion’s Core Values have been in place at Pro Motion since the very beginning. They shape what we do and how we do it from a high level down to our smallest choices.
These 5 tenets have remained virtually unchanged since 1995.
“Pro Motion anticipates my questions and needs, which is wonderful! I rest easy with Pro Motion in charge. I’m so happy to be able to partner with your team!” -CNN
Core Value #1: Employees First, Always.
- are passionate
- are appreciated
- enjoy working with the rest of the team
- understand and buy into the organization’s direction
- truly believe they can make a difference in the success of the company
…they will be more productive, more happy and will do whatever it takes to take care of their clients.
We are in the services business: we live and die based on the quality and value of the results we deliver. So, happy employees make for happy clients. Over the years, we’ve found countless ways to test this Core Value, and “Employees First, Always” continues to show its value to the organization, its employees and its clients.
The little perks certainly add up; working from home or elsewhere, flexible scheduling, company parties, activities, lunches, and a genuine effort to provide the necessary tools and training for each team members’ job are just the tip of the iceberg.
Project Manager Patrick Longo remembers an example from his third day on the PMI team. There was a random Missouri snowstorm in the middle of the day, and when he tried to leave for home, he couldn’t get out of the parking lot. Everyone in the office came out to help get Patrick’s car unstuck. Ultimately, however, the weather was too much. President, Steve Randazzo, gave him the keys to a company truck to get home safely.
Team members are encouraged to take extra training, and Pro Motion budgets time and money for staff to go to industry conferences and conventions.
Our road teams are engineered to ensure that our client brands are taken well-represented and that activations seem effortless. That effortlessness takes a lot of effort. In addition to their wages and their per diem, the team back home springs for massages, concert tickets, and meals so that days off are actually rewarding and relaxing.
In 2015, the cost of corporate health insurance went up by almost 50%. Pro Motion shouldered that entire burden to keep things stable for the staff.
It doesn’t happen often, but over the course of our 20 year history, we have fired two clients due to their unprofessional treatment of PMI team members. These firings meant losses in the millions of dollars, but incalculable gains in team trust, appreciation, and morale.
No Gesture too Large, No Gesture too Small
From the smallest efforts to the grandest gestures, Pro Motion keeps Employees First, Always. This “trickle up” approach pays off for the team, for management, and—most importantly—for our client brands.
