On June 23 President Obama and the First Lady Michelle Obama held a White House Summit on working families.
President Obama Speaks at the Working Families Summit
This summit was designed to focus on how we can strengthen our nation’s workplaces to better support working families, boost businesses’ bottom lines, and ensure America’s global economic competitiveness in the coming decades.
President Obama gave a rousing speech defining the problem, a lack in support for working families, and his plan for addressing this. Within this speech he stated, concerning working parents, “if they need to bring their mom to the doctor or take an afternoon off to see their kid’s school play, it would mean them losing income that they can’t afford to lose. And even when working from home from time to time is doable, it’s often not an option — even though studies show that flexibility makes workers happier and helps companies lower turnover and raise productivity.” http://1.usa.gov/1iAVHaP
I am proud to say that Daxko has embraced the philosophy that flexible scheduling and plush benefits strengthen team members happiness, dedication, and productivity. Daxko is recognized for providing innovative benefits that celebrate Daxko’s culture, promotes healthy living, encourages continuous learning, and helps team members achieve their personal and professional goals.
As an example within the past couple weeks I have had a couple of scheduling conflicts with my typical 8-5 hours, I’ve had a sick child to care for, and a commitment to be involved in my churches VBS program to fulfill, both of which fell within the typical work hours. Without hesitation Daxko accommodated to my schedule by allowing me to shift my schedule and enabled me to be a caring father and active member of my church.
I love this company and am loyal to it because long before the President’s summit Daxko strategically created a company that enables team members to make significant impact within a fulfilling career and also to promote their happiness and success outside of the Daxko walls.
