More than data destruction, Guardian focuses on continuous improvement and a strong company culture

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. 

Company Culture

  • 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).

Best-in-class Business and Company Practices

All-Company Training

  • “Listening Attentively” keynote focused on becoming a more effective person and worker through improved listening skills and behavior modification.
  • Walk-thru the importance and completion of the updated Asset Transfer Form (ATF) to deliver tighter chain of custody protocols
  • Strength and stretching recommendations for health and safety on the job no matter what office or position
  • Division updates detailing challenges, changes and improvements, new services and big wins
  • Policies and procedures to uphold confidentiality, integrity and data security operations across all Guardian and Customer Sites and activities including onsite, offsite and the office.

Performance Recognition

Department managers were pleased to award more “Impact Player” awards for 2022 than any other year reflecting the incredible Guardian Data Destruction staff who go above and beyond to deliver service excellence. We congratulate

Good fun and good work

The day of learning and fellowship closed with a fun, families-included evening at the onsite Nickelodeon Universe Theme Park and festive company dinner.

Special thanks to the American Dream events staff for a second impressive year of hosting, Alma Bank for their sponsorship, Rob Thomas NCSA-CPT for walking everyone through work-friendly stretching options and SAX Accounting for their personalized employee benefits session. 

As the all-hands day concluded, Mike Sirota, Guardian VP and CFO, stressed to everyone in every position:

We are hired to protect our customers’ data and privacy.

We are the last line of defense.

Be smart.

The annual meeting is an opportunity to affirm the #GuardianFamily. Our collective goal is to ensure the secure, compliant and absolute satisfaction of every data-handling job. Any client. Any size. Any device. Anywhere.
