Building Healthy, Functioning Teams

Posted: Wednesday, April 13, 2016

Many of the divisions at Orchid have been working on developing better intrapersonal and interpersonal communication and team health over the last few years.  We work with an outside coach, Mark Freier, from Nexecute – a company built to help organizations grow on both the “Smart” and “Healthy” side of business.  The sites are very much aligned with the belief (as originally published by Patrick Lencioni and The Table Group) that: Smart + Healthy = Success.  Lots of books, training, and time is spent focusing on how we can be more Smart.  Within the last few years we have begun to focus on how we can also be more Healthy.

Service Before Self

Posted: Monday, April 06, 2015

We are extremely blessed to work for an organization with such a rich mission and comprehensive set of core values. Our mission is really quite incredible when you think about it: to provide the opportunity for people to live a better life. This starts at each one of our divisions with providing the opportunity for our employees to live a better life by supporting their families. By each of us taking care of what we need to in our roles, it then extends out to the other nearly 2,000 Orchid employees and their opportunity to support their families. Of course, this means that our customers can provide a similar opportunity to their employees which number in the hundreds of thousands. And finally, the end users of the products we produce (which number in the millions around the world) have regained their mobility and personal freedom – which allows them to live a fuller and better life.
