As 2022 comes to an end, some may suggest that it has been no different than the past two years as all we hear is bad news, and faced with challenges that never seem to end. Words like COVID-19, influenza, RSV, inflation, etc. are firmly ingrained in our heads. There seems to be continued social strife around the world, and environmental degradation is a topic that needs to be discussed. However, amongst all the “bad” news there is beauty, hope and inspiration. Collectively, we have the capacity to be generous, and we are, Jack Welch referred to this as our “generosity gene”. All we need to do is ignite this, and the potential for change and good is endless.
With regards to the above, I would like to celebrate the achievements of my phenomenal team, the quality and commitment of our clients, both old and new, and the suppliers that allow us to provide you with the same values and commitment to being the best we can be since 1979. Success is a reflection of many components. Celebrating is something we need to do more of, because we are all unique and filled with the potential to make a positive change to our surroundings and the people we interact with. Our motto continues to be “We treat clients as friends, because you never let a friend down”. Old fashioned, perhaps, but still very relevant to our success.
As we approach 2023, we at T. Harris Environmental Management Inc. (THEM), will remain dedicated to achieving excellence in creating safe and healthy environments. But more importantly, we will try and celebrate more and ignite the “generosity gene” as there is so much good that can be achieved. As such, we take pride in the causes we have supported in 2022, both corporately and personally, In particular, we have donated to the regional food banks where we have offices this holiday season as there is such a great need.
I wish you joy, peace and happiness this holiday season, and look forward to working with you in 2023.
Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays,
