Over the past two years, we've had the pleasure of witnessing her remarkable evolution within the company, and it brings us immense joy to share that she has been promoted not once, but twice during this time! All while continuing to grow and support her team.
Her journey with us began unexpectedly when she spotted an ad for non-profit marketing and sales, although her initial interest was in digital marketing. Embracing the opportunity, she found her footing with our team. Payton strongly believes in the power of direct marketing for effective sales. What sets our business development model apart, and what she loves about her job, is our unique approach compared to similar companies. The inclusive practice of providing a base salary and equal opportunities for everyone to thrive is a standout feature for Payton and many of our other team members across the country.
Payton's remarkable journey as our newly promoted Fundraising Manager reflects our commitment to creating an environment that empowers our employees on their individual paths toward success.
In this case study, Payton shares her insights, highlighting five key strategies GIG employs to empower its workforce. These strategies paint a picture of how GIG creates an atmosphere where each team member can thrive and reach their potential.
1. Nurturing Growth and Unleashing Potential
At GIG, our core mission is to foster growth and unlock potential. We do this by investing in our people, providing comprehensive training programs, and creating an environment that encourages innovation and personal development. We believe that by nurturing the talents and aspirations of our team members, we pave the way for them to reach their fullest potential. Through internal promotion and personalized guidance, we empower our members to realize their highest potential, fostering a culture where growth is both encouraged and celebrated.
“My best advice for a new person starting the field would be to have fun and ask questions. There is no better way to learn than to ask questions to people who have been through it themselves.”
2. Collaboration and Support
Collaboration and support are the cornerstones of our success. We understand the power of teamwork and the significance of a supportive environment. By fostering open communication and teamwork, we create a space where ideas flourish and collective efforts drive us forward.
Our commitment to supporting one another ensures that everyone feels valued and empowered, fostering a culture where success is a collective achievement. Payton's role exemplifies our dedication to mutual support, ensuring every team member feels valued and empowered, creating a culture where success is a shared goal.
3. New Challenges and Opportunities Every Day
At GIG, we embrace the thrill of encountering new challenges and opportunities every day. Our dynamic environment ensures that no two days are alike. We thrive on the variety and excitement that each day brings, knowing that it presents a chance for growth, learning, and pushing boundaries. In this ever-evolving landscape, we welcome change as an opportunity to excel and evolve.
Her tip for progress? Choose mentors or advisors who've already achieved what you aspire to. It's about learning from those who've walked the same path you're on. By surrounding yourself with their insights and experiences, you're essentially following a roadmap to success that's already been tested and proven.
“Another piece of advice I have for someone that wants to progress is to be picky with who you get your advice from. Seek out advice from people that are in the position you want either personally or professionally.”
4. Empowering Others
Empowering others is at the heart of Payton's role and it's a value we deeply cherish at GIG. For Payton, being a newly promoted Fundraising Manager means not just excelling individually, but also uplifting and supporting the team to achieve collective success.
“Knowing your team's goals, and what they want their future to look like will help you motivate and inspire them on a daily basis. Care about the people on your team and build relationships with each one of them. Your coaching can only go as far as your relationship will allow it.”
This ethos resonates strongly within our company culture. We believe that empowering each team member fosters a sense of ownership, creativity, and confidence. It enables individuals to contribute meaningfully and drives the overall success of the team.
