(Editor’s Note: Today’s post is brought to you by our friends at Kronos, the global leader in delivering workforce management solutions in the cloud. Tens of thousands of organizations in more than 100 countries, including more than half of the Fortune 1000, use Kronos to control labor costs and improve workforce productivity.)
Tomorrow is Labor Day. It’s a holiday in the U.S. that celebrates the achievements of its workers. Other countries celebrate workers, of course, but they might call the holiday something different or celebrate on a different day. Regardless of when it’s celebrated, the achievements of workers are important. Our lives are based upon our own work and the great work of others.
Think about our homes, health, families and hobbies. All things that we are fortunate to have because someone invented it, or helps to keep us safe, or makes our lives easier.
Our friends at Kronos recognize that. And they have partnered with Peabody Award-winning director Lea Thau and five-time Emmy award-winning director Alan Chebot to produce “1 in One Hundred Million”. The online video series will highlight the spirit of today’s workforce.
The first webisode tells the story of Chris Merrick, a 34-year firefighting veteran. It’s very moving; a great account of leadership and teamwork.
Kronos chief executive officer Aron Ain explains why they chose to this project. “In today’s workforce, many of the personal stories go untold and unrecognized. These employees are dedicated and passionate about their jobs – which are often critical roles we rely upon every day. Kronos is proud to celebrate the people who reflect the character and commitment of today’s workforce.”
New webisodes will be coming soon, so don’t miss future stories. You can subscribe to the video series here. The lessons we can learn from others is limitless. Limitless, too, is our gratitude for the professions they have chosen.
Labor Day doesn’t have to be one day a year. We can recognize the good work of others all year long.0
