The camaraderie was as bright as the holiday spirit when the CertaPro Painters of Northwest Indiana team gathered for its Christmas party on December 8 at the Youche Country Club in Crown Point.
The group had the chance to enjoy each other's company while feasting on some delicious prime rib and a multitude of sides and desserts. CertaPro Painters of Northwest Indiana team members and their families were able to mingle and catch up while enjoying some much-needed time off as they begin to wrap up a busy and productive year at work.
After reminiscing about the successes of this year, the company began looking ahead to next year, and what the team could achieve in 2023. Many CertaPro Painters of Northwest Indiana members stated they were already confident that many great things will come in the year ahead.
“It’s a long year of hard work for us and our team. We do a lot throughout the year. We really don’t get enough opportunities to recognize it, to really celebrate the wins and the success, or to show our team that we appreciate them. It's the holidays, it's the time to be thankful; it's a great opportunity to say thanks to everyone that puts in the work every day to allow us to be successful,” said CertaPro Painters of Northwest Indiana Owner and President John Jordan.
The gratitude was aplenty at the Christmas Party. Jordan and Director of Operations Mark Powers were sure to make it known just how much they appreciate each and every employee for all they've done to help the painting company achieve another wonderful and successful year.
John Carpenter has been working with CertaPro Painters of Northwest Indiana since 2017, and greatly enjoys working with such a tight, close-knit team.
“This company is like a family, and they treat everybody equally. It’s nice to get together instead of being sprawled out on different projects throughout the year,” Carpenter said.
Gabriel Ortiz has been with CertaPro Painters of Northwest Indiana for only two years, but in that time, he found it easy to adapt and was proud to call himself a member of the CertaPro Painters of Northwest Indiana family.
“This is my second year at CertaPro. I really like the company, everyone here is nice,” said Ortiz.
Jordan and Powers ended the celebration with a closing ceremony where they presented gifts to CertaPro Painters of Northwest Indiana members and their families. The significant others of CertaPro Painters of Northwest Indiana team members were gifted with Christmas-themed baskets, Ghirardelli chocolate, and flowers to thank them for being supportive of the commitment their significant others make.
