International Women’s Day is a global day to celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political women’s achievements across the world. This year, the theme for International Women’s Day is #ChooseToChallenge. By empowering the women around us we can all choose to challenge ourselves and each other to celebrate women’s achievements and foster a world of inclusivity.
At Netsmart, we are privileged to be surrounded by and work alongside a team of incredible women. Our female leaders encourage our team to be passionate, take risks, and create a vision inside and outside of the workplace. Watch the video below to hear how women at Netsmart provide insight into ways they demonstrate Netsmart values in their own leadership style, encourage associates to embrace our values, share lessons learned throughout their career and their own best practices for balancing work and personal time.
In honor of National Boss’s Day, we are expressing our gratitude and appreciation for our Netsmart bosses and other supervisors in our organization. At Netsmart, we are surrounded by dedicated leaders who encourage collaboration, teamwork and motivate us to strive for a better future together. They are leaders and teachers.
Day after day, Netsmart proves to be one of the best companies to work for and this foundation of excellence starts with our leaders and mentors. Netsmart leaders help us take risks, create meaningful relationships with clients, live our values and develop a passion for what we do. When our hard work comes together, our mantra, people matter, becomes more than words—it becomes reality for the Netsmart family.
Our appreciation extends to our managers and supervisors today and every day. TODAY is your DAY! We can’t think of a better possible time to celebrate our bosses, as National Boss’s Day falls right after CONNECTIONS2020 and the start of a new quarter! All our Netsmart bosses demonstrate hard work and dedication that is deserving of ongoing celebration.
Once a year isn’t enough to express our gratitude for all the great work our Netsmart leaders do. Thank you to all our managers, supervisors and other leaders for everything you do for Netsmart and for us! We appreciate each of you and wish you the best National Boss’s Day!
