Like so many other employees of Fire Systems, Floyd appreciates the advantages that come with working for a family-owned and operated fire protection company.
“The management team looks out for us as one of their own,” says Floyd.
Trust is another major perk Floyd values as part of the Fire Systems team. “We have the freedom to make our schedule,” explains Floyd. “We’re also given many benefits like a company vehicle and gas card.”
When employees are trusted and treated with respect, the result is a culture of intrinsically motivated employees who want to work hard. Employees like Floyd know they are supported; from the management team to the office staff, Fire Systems technicians understand the important role they play in the company.
Fire Systems illustrates the importance of the work these technicians do by offering company paid trainings and certifications. Floyd hopes to take advantage of such trainings, saying: “I would like to gain other certifications to better myself as well as the company.”
He also sees Fire Systems as somewhere he’d like to retire. “Stan [owner] and the management team are good people,” says Floyd. “Fire Systems has become a second home for me.”
