This “forgotten demographic” is not forgotten or overlooked by me. In fact, I was who they are.”
Good Morning Folks,
Since the early 1990s, bylines, blogs, executive biographies and recurring columns by Jeff Zbar have been published published in scores of regional and national publications and websites, including Advertising Age, Entrepreneur, Inc., and Herman Miller’s JuggleZine, Florida Trend, Writer’s Digest, the South Florida Business Journal, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.
Jeff recently sat down with me for an extensive interview to discuss FSO's rapid growth and how we are driving towards a prosperous future with a personal, passionate and productive culture and a focus on creating jobs and career opportunities for the "hourly demographic" that others have left behind.
In the interview, I give Jeff my philosophy on the things that have made me successful having started and built three outsourcing companies, managing tens of thousands of employees in thousands of America's most recognized brands.
In the piece Jeff writes, "Once a David to corporate Goliath’s,Weiner’s promise to deliver personal, passionate and productive service has earned FSO the 24th spot on Crain’s Fast 50 list of the 50 fastest-growing privately held companies in the New York area and earned inclusion in the Inc. 500|5000 ranking of the fastest growing companies in the United States for three consecutive years.
Concludes Zbar, "￼￼￼Weiner’s made a career pulling these individuals, whom he calls his “Rising Stars,” from obscurity into the glow of personal success. Weiner will always be that guy in the space who cares enough to take care of the hourly employee from the middle manager down. Big companies are too big to care – to teach these employees, to embrace them, to help them create lasting careers.”
I very much appreciate this recognition and Jeff's taking the time to speak with customers and employees. He has accurately captured my business plan: Always improve the customer’s business – no matter what; always take care of our people, through better incentives, training and career pathing; and always deliver added value to the customer.
As the article makes clear, we've built and grown his business with an emphasis on people – the hardworking, dedicated employees who care about doing a great job for our clients.
Know that I am personally invested and CARE about every person in our company. It is part of the personal touch that sets us a part in this industry and in business compared to most.
Believe in yourself, work hand and know that anything is possible and I will work as hard as you to ensure that all of your dreams come true.
You are all winners in my book. Shine on.
Have a GREAT Day and please send in the sun shine!
