What distinguishes a great leader is how he or she responds in times of crisis.
Our Remington Lighting family would like to thank our leader, Doug Scott, president, for his dedication and compassion during this uncertain time in our lives. From the start, Doug ensured all of us that no matter what happened we would continue to work, and no one will lose their jobs or homes. It was a daunting promise and Doug delivered. We are grateful.
As we continue to work from home, we asked our team to share their sentiments on our competent leader and here is what was said:
- Doug, thank you, for keeping the lights on during this very challenging time in world history. As we reach out to our base to thank them for their support and they reach out to their base, the message of hope is paid forward. We are all stronger for having worked together as a company and as an industry. The lights are on because you care, we care, and our industry cares about our common humanity and wellbeing.
- Doug’s dedication and continued efforts to keep our team employed and the business operating during such a difficult time is appreciated more than words can express. This is a great team and I am so thankful to be a part of it.
- Thank you, Doug, for bringing me on board and making me part of the Remington family! I am so excited to be here, and I am looking forward to huge successes in the very near future.
- You have always motivated me and inspired me to be my best! You are a wonderful role model. Thank you!
- Thank you for implementing a multiple contingency plan for whatever unfolds during this pandemic. It ultimately resulted in us working from home, which we have all adapted. Thank you for having the foresight and vision. Our daily team calls keep me motivated and productive.
- Best. Boss. Ever! (This one, in particular, says it all!)
