What Makes a Company Successful?

     

We know a thing or… twenty when comes to being a successful business.  Yazoo has been in business for 115 years, that’s right… we started in 1902.  We have seen it all; the highs, the lows, and have always made it out on top.  Being a successful company surely doesn’t happen overnight and certainly doesn’t happen without having a plan, motivation, ambition, good employees, and taking chances.

Yazoo has also been motivated beyond financial success.  Our entire company is fueled by producing the best, high-quality products in the paper tube and core industry.  One attribute to our success is our working environment.  We have created an atmosphere composed of employees who are suited for the jobs that they do and policies designed to motivate them to continue working well.

Remember, a company would be no where without their customers.  Yazoo is tremendously passionate about our customers and how we can be the solution they have been searching for.  We take care of our customers not only by offering outstanding customer service, but also understanding our customers so well that we can anticipate and fulfill their needs.

Lastly, don’t be afraid to take risks.  With everything always evolving, you must be able to adapt quickly and take chances to better yourself and your company.  Don’t forget, nothing worth having comes easy.

Opportunities don’t happen.  You create them.” – John D. Rockefeller

Yazoo Continues to Grow Its Professional Team

     


As we continue to expand, there comes a need to add to our list of highly-skilled, professional employees.  Our sustained growth has opened up a new position within Yazoo and we are happy to welcome Trisha Schedel, our new Human Resources/Safety Coordinator, to the team!

Trisha is a York College alum with her bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education.  After graduation, she soon learned that teaching wasn’t for her and got a jump start into the recruiting world, which began her career path to Human Resources.  Before coming to Yazoo, she worked at a local staffing agency.  Her background includes recruiting and on-boarding new staff for various industries.

When asked what she likes most about working at Yazoo she said, “I like working at Yazoo for many reasons.  My coworkers have been very welcoming and helpful to me over the past month.  Employees’ voices are heard and ideas are always welcomed.”  She continues to say, “From an HR standpoint, Yazoo’s great reputation attracts many high-quality candidates, which makes recruiting easier!���

In her spare time, you can find Trisha running for miles on end, learning new yoga poses, or crafting up some DIY projects.  She is also preparing [and smiling ear-to-ear] for her upcoming wedding in April to her fiancé, Joel.

We are glad to have Trisha onboard and look forward to watching her grow with the company. 


Yazoo Remains a Team Player

     

A company that truly and genuinely cares for its employees is very hard to come by these days.  Sometimes, employers are only focused on getting a head of their competition while forgetting to put their employees first.  Even after 115 years, Yazoo continues to remain a team player for all of its employees.

We recognize that without great employees to produce products and service for our customers, we would have no business.  That’s why Yazoo treats every employee like family.  We offer healthcare, training, career advancement, and personal growth opportunities.  We want our employees to thrive within our company not only as individuals, but also as a team.

Yazoo has the utmost respect for our employees.  The thing that really differentiates ourselves from our competition is our people.  Our continued growth has not only been achieved by reinvesting in our facilities and our equipment, but also reinvesting in our people and making sure that they are getting the most out of working at Yazoo.  One of the many things we provide is leadership training for our employees.  This training helps create an even more positive working environment and helps our employees continue to be influential team players.
