A Note from Allison: May 2024

A Note from Allison: May 2024

I hope everyone had a great Memorial Day weekend! Thank you to all the active-duty military, veterans and first responders who make us all safe. Hats off to you!

My holiday was busy (including a 12-hour race day), and I am pooped. However, like most things in life, the time and effort put into going to the race was well worth it! As I wrote last month, I went with 6 people who had never been before. It was so exciting to see such a thrilling race with them!

New Hope was thrilled earlier in the month to be named an IndyStar Top Workplace for the sixth year in a row. We were also ranked in 6th place in the mid-size company category. In addition to this, New Hope received the following cultural badges: 1) Top 5% of all employers for strong values and 2) Top 25% of all employers for Leaders in the Know; Work-Life Balance; Meaningful Work; Open Minded; Cross-Team Cooperation; Trusted Leader; Company Direction; Clued in Employees; Supportive Managers and Innovation! What an honor!

One of my favorite parts of this survey, which is conducted annually and anonymously by a third-party surveyor, Energage, is the section on how our associates describe our culture at New Hope: compassionate, dedicated, connected, loving, caring, inclusive, welcoming, rewarding, empathetic, collaborative, family, excellent and diverse. Wow, what a culture that has been created at New Hope over the last 46 years! Thank you to every person who has worked to make this possible!

Now, back to the race. If you have been to the race or were lucky enough to see it on TV this weekend, you know there are so many wonderful, long-standing traditions. But this year they added two new ones that I know about: blue blazers for the winner and former winners and a double flyover. These were both great! I think in many ways New Hope is like the race. It has a wonderful history, and it can also add new great things. Stay tuned, you might see a double flyover some day!
