How Do We Maintain a Positive Work Environment?

Posted by ImageFIRST on Dec 28, 2016 8:00:00 AM

At ImageFIRST Fort Myers, we know a phrase as simple as “thank you” can go a long way. A simple expression of gratitude from a friend, a family member or even a co-worker can make an individual feel valued, easing the tensions caused by the day-to-day.

We spend a third of our weekly waking hours at work, sometimes more. Beyond the medical scrubs and uniforms in Fort Myers, FL that we provide to healthcare facilities, we work to create a positive company culture. We believe that positivity has the power to create better results inside and outside of our company.

The ImageFIRST Values: Be Respectful. Be Remarkable. Be Safe. Be Honest.

A few months ago, the Fort Myers team began playing a game called “Think Positive,” which was invented by our office manager, Wendy. Every week a different associate is chosen, and all other associates write a note about that person and why they enjoy their presence. The chosen associate then writes a note to the whole team about why they enjoy working with them and reads it aloud to everyone.

Similar to how students pass notes in classrooms, ImageFIRST associates pass along hand-written notes of encouragement and positivity that make their coworkers feel truly valued. At ImageFIRST Fort Myers, the high morale is palpable as associates break the ice and form a work environment unlike any other.

As associates continue to “Think Positive,” acts of kindness and encouraging words flow freely. ImageFIRST Fort Myers is proud to foster a greater sense of community among the people that work within our locations across the United States and Puerto Rico.

Our attitude is reflected in our work and has led us to become the largest, fastest-growing medical linen and laundry service in the nation. Our attitude also carries into the work we do outside of our facilities; we donate our time and goods to charities, schools and other community institutions on an ongoing basis.
