A More Certain Truth of Time

A More Certain Truth of Time

Submitted by: Jason Broce, Director of Human Resources and Colon Cancer Survivor Some say, “growing older is a privilege denied to many”. Like many quotes of wisdom, this is one that I have come to understand, yet never fully embraced until a couple of years ago. I’ve always been an advocate of my own health. As a boy, I remember watching my Dad running, lifting weights, and hanging from his biceps, and I wanted to be strong like him. Aside from a few years in college, I’ve always deliberately watched what I ate and maintained a regular exercise routine. With …

Are You Building A Career Legacy?

Are You Building A Career Legacy?

Written by: Heather Sueirro, Talent Manager Growing up in South Georgia, I saw firsthand the rapid expansion of the TMX Finance® Family of Companies. Buildings that had been old fast-food restaurants were turning into shiny new red, white, and blue businesses that gave the block an immediate facelift. It wasn’t until I began working with the Company in 2014 that I realized we were not just up and down Abercorn Street in Savannah, GA! I learned that we had hundreds of stores throughout the U.S.! It is no wonder we are celebrating Building a Legacy for our 20th Anniversary. I …

Hanukkah!

Hanukkah!

And when you’re dry and ready, oh dreidel I shall play!” For my family, the end of the year is synonymous with this jingle on repeat.

The celebration of Hanukkah, which is also known as the “Festival of Lights,” is not just a time to get together with family and get eight …

Creating a Culture of Service

Creating a Culture of Service

Submitted by: Kaitlyn McCormack, Senior Recruiting Manager I have a confession. When I was asked to facilitate a training on “Creating a Culture of Service”, I was a little apprehensive. The phrase is somewhat lofty and ambiguous, so to help make it more digestible, the first thing I did was Google the meaning of culture (as it applies to a company) and the meaning of service. Here is what I found: The culture of an organization is practically its DNA; it is implied, not expressly defined, and develops organically over time from the cumulative traits of the people the company …
