Guardian Data Destruction is heading into 2022 at full speed. Our annual company meeting, held at the American Dream event center, was crafted as a multi-purpose, all-employee day of introductions, reunions, training, team building, networking, appreciation, business review and a renewed commitment to doing whatever it takes to be the best in the IT asset end-of-life disposition business.
- Just about every employee from every US Guardian location gathered for the day. In-person. Lots of handshakes, smiles and face-to-face conversations about projects, families and work practices.
- A review of Guardian’s history from our 2006 beginning.
- Staff recognition of staff who have been at Guardian for five years or more – almost 30% have been on staff for at least eleven years.
- Introduction of new employees including their job function, location and favorite movie (Spiderman for the win).
