I was in dire need of a planner (because, you know, it’s a thing and my smartphone won’t suffice). And so, I purchased one on the super handy Staples website: a nicely sized colorful paperback 2020 planner. Amongst the brushed strokes of purple, white, orange and gold printed all around the cover, there was a Laurel Thatcher Ulrich quote embedded in black. It firmly stated, “WELL BEHAVED WOMEN RARELY MAKE HISTORY.” Bold, I thought (and in bold it was printed).
DANGER ALERT: It got me thinking.
Actually, it first reminded me: Service Keepers is a woman-owned business. And then it got me thinking: we’ve come a long way.
This blog isn’t meant to wave the bright feminist flag in the misogynistic face of everyone who’s ever doubted us (although, that would be nice). Rather, this is a celebration.
We have so many women who have made a difference in the business and how Service Keepers is operated. Let’s start off with the people out on the field, GETTING THINGS DONE: our employees. Did you know that close to 70% of our on-the-field employees are women? Fact. Here’s another fact: over half of our Site Supervisors are also women. The numbers describe us perfectly; as the fearless leaders we know we are.
Now, onto the women behind the scenes ALSO GETTING THINGS DONE. Most of the departments in Service Keepers are operated or co-operated by women: finance, human resources, integration and even operations. With the task of overseeing numerous accounts, I don’t have to tell you that it’s not an easy job (I told you anyway, just in case).
In today’s world, women are doing more than we or anyone
else (anti-women) ever imagined.
We’re dropping the “trophy wife” and picking-up all sorts of abbreviations: MD,
J.D., DDS, PsyD, etc. We’ve come a long way, but we have a long way to go, too.
Service Keepers hopes to serve as an example that anything is definitely
possible for anyone – sorry, boys.
