Cal Ripken as Workplace Role Model
Hey, did you watch Cal Ripkin, Jr.'s induction into the Baseball Hall of Fame? Some of the Iron Man's quotes transcend baseball and hit right at the nature of the workplace, don't 'ya think?
"Some fans have looked at 'The Streak' as a special accomplishment," Cal said, "but I always looked at it as just showing up for work everyday. I see thousands of people who do the same ... You all may not have received the accolades I have, but I'd like to take the time out to salute you for showing up, working hard, and making the world a better place."
I just put this quote, with Cal's picture, up in our lunchroom. What do you all think? What can we do to make our employees have a sense of commitment, no matter what they do for a job?
