Q&A with Robert Cox: ATC lets employees put family first
ATC lets employees put family first
Q: How do you reward employees for good outcomes and good behavior?
A: As a leader, I have worked hard to create an environment where employees feel they are valued and have a voice. As a leader, I am always there to encourage and cheer our employees on as they succeed. But what is unique about our culture is when we see someone fail, we ask how we can help and what we can do better. Each person's failures are a result of a breakdown somewhere in the communication or education of that employee.
Q: Do you offer time off for employees to volunteer?
A: We encourage our employees to find somewhere to volunteer. Many of our employees are involved with different nonprofits and we look to support the nonprofits they are passionate about.
Q: Do you offer flexibility for your employees to succeed?
A: ATC is really like a family. We find employees who are given time off to spend time with family, attend their kids soccer games, and take care of sick loved ones are more willing to be back at work giving 100 percent. We don't want our employees to miss the little or big moments of their life and our request of them is to complete their work and give their projects 100 percent.
