How Becoming a Part of the Point Monitor Family is Fulfilling and Changing Lives
How often have you read a blog post or article from a company discussing its dedication to creating a superior employee experience?
Have you found that they're vague in describing what makes them stand apart? Here at Point Monitor, we believe in walking the walk instead of just talking the talk when discussing how much we value our employees. When you become a part of the Point Monitor team, you are not only joining a group of exceptional professionals, but also joining a family.
Mark and Jennie Higgins, the founders of Point Monitor, have created a company culture that encourages employees to offer support and develop friendships beyond the workplace.
How else does this family culture manifest itself?
Providing Team Members with Stability
We believe that work should provide stability for families. We feel that you shouldn't have to sacrifice time with the ones you love to get the most out of work. For this reason, we prioritize work-life balance, so you can enjoy that school event with the kids or unplug from the stress during a family vacation.
Offering Support to One Another
Teamwork at Point Monitor goes beyond just working together on system installations. The Point Monitor family promotes a culture that motivates employees to come together to support those dealing with life's ups and downs. In the past, when a team member has been ill or injured, employees have brought food and care packages. Others have been offered rides to doctor appointments, or received text messages letting them know they have a support system if and when they need it.
Enjoying Hobbies with Each Other
We understand that employees have a life outside of work. Team members get together to hike in the Columbia Gorge, attend each other's weddings, hunt and fish, celebrate birthdays and anniversaries, work on car projects, or enjoying happy hour together after work. At Point Monitor, we believe in embodying what it means to be a family at work.
Recognizing and Appreciating Employees
Our company wouldn’t be what it is without our employees’ creativity, skill and expertise. For this reason, we take every opportunity we can to say "thank you."
Periodically, we treat our employees to salmon fishing in the Pacific Ocean or a night out at Topgolf® with the rest of the Point Monitor team and their families to show our appreciation.
Additionally, we use the holidays to express our appreciation for the hard work they've done throughout the year. From taking a dinner cruise on the Columbia Gorge Sternwheeler to a sit-down dining event at a hotel banquet hall, we use these times to relax and fellowship with one another.
(But, we'll be honest, the ugly sweater contest is one of the highlights of the end-of-year holiday season.)
So, what’s the bottom line?
By joining the Point Monitor team, you get to work at a remarkable company that takes pride in the service provided to customers and genuinely values our employees as our greatest asset. We greatly appreciate having the respect of customers and competitors alike and offering excellent employee benefits and competitive wages. We're most excited about providing team members the added benefit of joining a family that respects, cares, has their back, and wants them to succeed in all their endeavors.
If you've seen a position that fits, we invite you to consider joining the Point Monitor family. We look forward to meeting you!
