About People, Incorporated
The story of our success
It is the key component of our future viability as an organization and our capacity to succeed. Profitability allows us to build a stable and secure future, strengthen our resources, develop creative solutions, manage risk and build our community. Profitability has allowed us to secure the future of the Diabetes Association and the SMILES programs. It allowed us to help organize and financially support Kids-A-Palooza and Block-A-Palooza. It allowed us to make a major investment in the establishment of two full service community centers (4 South Main Street and the Letourneau Elementary School) and it helps us provide a better work experience to our employees.
It allows us to add value and variety to what we do. Our growth continues to add layers of additional quality to the services we provide. Each program service now has more expanded abilities to meet individual and community needs as we continue to build upon a larger set of supports. We have become one of the largest employers in the Fall River area with more than 700 talented and professional employees. We are a robust, economic engine for the community. Growth prevents stagnation, increases opportunities for community collaboration and builds opportunity for our community workforce. It is our ability to successfully compete with other organizations that are not based in our community for valuable resources that makes us a stronger and more viable society.
Employee Recognition and Reward
Our greatest asset is the talented workforce that fuels our success. We have made a strong and continually improving commitment of respect to our workforce. It is the value that we place on our workforce that allows us to continue to grow and succeed. We offer a wide range of financial rewards to employees to recognize their contributions to our success. We offer many educational and professional training opportunities so that they may improve their ability to secure a better future. We commit to a variety of internal career ladders and promotions from within so they may have a career at People, Incorporated, not just a job. We offer wellness programs, opportunities to participate in our community and much more to create a work experience that is superior to other organizations.
Our future is dependent upon our ability to provide a set of services that funders respect, appreciate and wish to continue and hopefully build upon. We seek input from many sources, offer many vehicles through which ideas and suggestions surface to the highest levels of the organization. We have established a continuous quality improvement committee and most importantly, remain open to criticism, transparent in our actions and willing to delegate significant responsibilities to our management team. There is no substitute for quality. We have no acceptance of mediocrity and maintain a constant drive to become better.
