Allentown, PA – ATAS International, a leading manufacturer of metal roofing, wall and ceiling panels, celebrated “Marching Forth” on March Fourth, with their inaugural Personal Development Day. It is a day on which employees can declare their goals, and begin work toward achieving them by “Marching Forth”. The goals can be for either personal or professional improvement. S.M.A.R.T. goal setting methods were reviewed with the employees, to increase the success of reaching objectives.
Those who chose to participate shared their goals with others, and they will be visible throughout the company until March Fourth of next year. Quarterly review of progress will assist people in keeping on track. On March Fourth of 2017, two winners will be selected by a group of judges. There will be one winner for a personal goal achievement and one for a professional goal. The winners will have their names displayed on the prestigious “Wooden Shoe Award” (paying tribute to the company founders’ Dutch heritage), which will remain on display at ATAS throughout the year.
Jim Bus, ATAS’ Executive Vice President stated, “We believe this will be a fun and inspiring activity for all. Everyone has aspirations of improving their life, and this is a creative and engaging means to doing so.”
