Being a part of Improving means being a part of a family. A family that is able to stick with you through the ups and downs, as well as nurture you to be the best version of yourself. A family that lives and breathes the values that they preach and shares that positivity with everyone they come across.
The community we have witnessed and been a part of at Improving is completely unique to any other environment any of us have worked at before. Whether it be that we are doing technical work or checking inventory, there is always a sense of pride in what we do.
Having the opportunity to contribute to the Marketing, Sales, Operations and Recruiting departments aided us in learning how to navigate through new environments quickly and successfully. We learned how to function in these departments with organization, time management, and of course, a positive attitude. There were many times where we found success in our work and there were also a lot of opportunities to learn foreign concepts. Through these departments, we were able to use our skills and newly acquired knowledge to learn and develop department-specific skills as well. Additionally, going through daily scrum helped us get out of our comfort zone and present our ideas to our coworkers.
As our internship went on we realized that being able to have such a wonderful experience makes for a bittersweet goodbye. Even though this isn’t the end of our relationship with Improving, we know that we have to move on from our current positions here and look ahead towards the future. With the Improving values of trust, dedication, involvement, and excellence, we can confidently say that we understand what it means to live out these values not only in the workplace, but in ourselves.
