What it means to join the 9Gauge team
Firms today exist in a rapidly changing business world and as such, employment relationships between individuals and companies have emerged.
We’re delighted you have an interest in evaluating a career with 9Gauge. I want to share our thoughts on our relationship with those who join our team.
Your hard work and contributions to 9Gauge are not just appreciated, but treasured. We truly hire every new member of our team with the hope they stay with us until they retire. From time to time your role may be tenuous, particularly when our firm is up against strong competition. You possess key skills and experience that should keep you marketable in this industry and our goal is for you to never have reason to “market” those skills to another employer. To us “you’re a keeper” and we intend to make every effort to hang onto you!
Your skills will likely evolve during your career with us, as we respond to customer needs. We don’t expect either of us will always know what skills you will need to focus on, but put the burden on both of us to evaluate this question on an annual basis to ensure your skills are valuable to the team, and our skills are valuable to customers.
For firms to succeed today, it’s critical that we both have a shared commitment to your continued growth and development. We commit to invest in your continued development so that you may increase your abilities that contribute to the success of the organization.
Some team members strive for upward promotions, while others strive for lateral movement into other challenging positions. Our goal is to meet your needs in either direction, such that you never grow bored and are always learning.
As long as you are with us we will work diligently to inspire you with meaningful work and strive to maintain your genuine commitment to quality in our services. In return we ask for your enthusiastic commitment to our core values and our customers needs. We are aware that we owe each other no loyalty other than that which is earned, and hope to enjoy many years of success together. While there are no guarantees, we believe jointly standing behind the values stated here represents a good start to a long-term relationship, and hope you believe the same.
