If you would have told me that my 13-year anniversary at CDW would be spent working from home full-time during a global pandemic, I would have not believed you. I work from home (WFH) full-time for my role, so that's not a stretch, but I never would have believed the global pandemic part.
Yet here we are. We're in the thick of COVID-19. We're being asked by our state, local and federal government leaders to practice social distancing and step up our hygiene game. Many offices are closed and our new normal is seeing and hearing each other through virtual meetings instead of shaking hands and enjoying conversations in-person.
While there are a lot of unknowns happening in our world right now, my fellow coworkers remind me of why I have stayed at CDW for 13 years. It is their willingness to go the extra mile for our customers. It's also their ability to support each other through thick and thin.
Our customers have been and will continue to look to us to help them weather this global storm. They need to:
At CDW, everything we do revolves around our customers. It is the foundation of our company's culture. No matter where we work within our organization, our goal is to meet our customers' needs.
Our coworkers have stepped their game up for our customers. It's amazing to see and hear stories of how they are going above and beyond to make our customers requests a reality. None of this surprises me because it truly is the CDW Way.
What continues to amaze me, and is the core reason why I am so loyal to CDW, is how all of our coworkers are supporting each other during this unprecedented time. Our executive leadership shares constant communication with all coworkers on a consistent basis. From logistical and industry updates to sharing best practices and words of encouragement, it's clear that our leadership is invested in the mental and emotional well-being of our coworkers.
So why have I stayed at CDW for the past 13 years? It's all of the reasons above and more. I'm so blessed to call myself a CDW coworker. The reasons I shared in my 10-year anniversary still ring true to this day. To see all of us rise up, not only to support each other, but to meet the needs of our customers during the COVID-19 crisis, is something that I will always remember. We are CDW.
