As we head into the holiday season, we will be taking a break from our regular postings, which will return the week of January 11th.
In the meantime, I wanted to thank you all for taking a few minutes out of your busy schedule, and reading about some amazing people, businesses, and organizations.
Many of you have called or written us after dining in the restaurants, shopping at the stores, or using some of the professional services and since all the comments have been positive, I guess we’re doing what we set out to do… highlight great individuals and companies.
The holidays also give us a time to reflect, and as is typically the case, over the past year, many people around the world have experienced challenges, tragedies, and natural disasters.
As has been our tradition for several years, in lieu of sending cards and gifts for the holiday season, SQM has chosen to make donations to a number of charities which we support, in the name of our clients. We also encourage our staff and field force to participate in a number of initiatives, such as our Annual Sock Drive or the recent program involving Mystery Shoppers completing inspections and donating their clothes to various organizations. As one of our Mystery Shoppers mentioned, “there are many ways to help others without having to spend a lot of time or money,” so please consider what you can do to make the world a better place.
From all of us at SQM, we wish you a safe and enjoyable holiday season, and all the best for 2016.
