“Our company has always tried to work with our staff to improve themselves. Our values are not made a secret at our company. We have always wanted to be able to console our employees. As the business has grown, it has been more difficult to have all the discussions that are probably needed. We also found out that it was understandable that even though we wanted to help, why would a staff member want to share their stress point with us, if in their mind it would be showing a weakness in the eyes of the very people that are evaluating them for performance. By bringing in Pastor James, we have widened the reach of what we would love to do for everyone. James has a gentle spirit blessed upon him and he has meshed very well with our staff during our visits. We are very happy with our decision to allow James to be with our staff and feel great that he is carrying out further what we feel is our Christian responsibility to our staff.”
