Welcome back! My goal is to educate and excite you about all that Goodwill does for our community and what it can possibly do for you and/or your business! If this is the first blog you have read in this series, please feel free to see how it all got started from my first entry here.
This week’s Business Services Employee Spotlight is focused on Jason Outlaw! Jason has been a member of our custodial team at Fort Detrick since May of 2008. He is a hard worker who believes in himself, but that was not always the case. Let’s look further into his story!
Dr. Joyce Brothers is quoted as saying, “A strong, positive self-image is the best possible preparation for success in life”. When you believe in yourself it shows. This causes others to believe in you and allows you to perform at your best without self-doubt holding you back.
Jason came to Horizon Goodwill when his job coach recommended our services to help him find sustainable employment. Jason was cleared to work on this Federal contract and got a job on the team where he has developed as an employee and as an individual. The work has given him a routine which helped to build his confidence and created much needed structure in his life. Each day being part of a structured, highly functioning team has enhanced his communication skills and provided him a sense of comradery. Trina, his Supervisor said that, “Jason always does his job. He can work with any of his co-workers and exemplifies a positive attitude while working.”
We are happy to have him as part of our organization and excited to recognize his accomplishments!
