Hanukkah!

Hanukkah!

Submitted by: Abby Bruno, Recruiting Manager “Oh dreidel, dreidel, dreidel, I made you out of clay. 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. From the time I was little to the present day (and now that I have a child of my own) we always sing and light the candles for eight days every winter. 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 …

Part 2: Taking on the World!

Part 2: Taking on the World!

Submitted by: Denise Niiyama, VP of Strategic Planning & Enterprise Solutions Let me share a few observations on my reflection. Size and/or Dollars are not a good measure of investment in Women’s Leadership While other companies may be investing higher dollars in their various women’s programs, it would appear to be a ‘checkmark in a box’ without follow through on their commitment.  In my experience, the proof is in the walk beyond the talk that continues on.  At this point in my career, I have expectations of myself as well as my employer which is simple – I want to …

Taking on the World!

Taking on the World!

Submitted by: Denise Niiyama, VP of Strategic Planning & Enterprise Solutions I was honored to be one of fifteen women invited to participate in a Women’s Leadership event featuring executives for a business conversation to advance women in business and technology.  This would only be achieved through collaboration, sharing, and promoting the importance of mentoring as well as investing in talent of other women. I was very appreciative for the TMX leadership allowing me the opportunity to take a step back for a couple days while attending this conference to gain an even clearer perspective of our Company.  During this …

#DefineYourDrive- Family

#DefineYourDrive- Family

Submitted by: Troy Shetron – TitleBucks General Manager, Georgia I joined the military straight out of high school and completed Basic Training and Advanced Individual Training (AIT) in 2002. I was deployed to Iraq from 2005 to 2006 and again later in 2007. After receiving injuries as a result of a road side bomb (IED), my drive changed when I was discharged from Active Duty with medical disability. I had to be the one to challenge myself to turn and take a new path and excel at it. I returned to civilian life and began managing a retail store for …

#DefineYourDrive- Determination

#DefineYourDrive- Determination

Roxanne Powell – TitleMax General Manager, Alabama I decided to join the Army National Guard after my sister deployed to Afghanistan. When I went to her deployment ceremony, I witnessed the selfless service of my sister and her brothers-and-sisters in arms. I saw the dedication and the comradery of soldiers that gave up their freedom to protect ours and that is what made me want to join. I joined because I wanted to serve my country, I wanted to do something to help others, and give back to my community. Joining the military is what has made me into the …

#DefineYourDrive- Family

#DefineYourDrive- Family

Submitted by: Jason Connell – District Director of Operations, Georgia I grew up in a small Georgia town where I was taught at a young age that hard work, integrity, and family were most important. I was fortunate enough to be raised by some amazing people, not just parents but uncles, aunts, and grandparents that helped mold me into the person I am today. Upon high school graduation, I became a United States Marine. Being a Marine instilled in me the disciplines to work hard and never quit. In my retail career and now here at TitleMax, I have had …
