Though Valentine’s Day has become a largely commercialized holiday driven more by candy and flowers than real feelings, we need to remember the original intent of the holiday – to tell those we care about that we love them. The smallest acts of kindest can sometimes make the largest impact!
Here at bloom, Valentine’s Day is kind of a big deal. It’s a time of year when we reflect back on all of our great customers and what a wonderful impression they have made on us. Going along with the valentine’s theme, our company culture is based around the core values of H.E.A.R.T.
“H” stands for hear: we are always striving to listen to our customers and take their feedback into account as we create new products and improve current ones.
“E” is for enthusiasm: it energizes everyone around you. It’s so much more exciting to work in an office like bloom where everyone is truly excited about what they are doing. Every detail makes a difference!
“A” is for attitude: it determines your altitude. Everything we do is affected by our attitude towards the situation. We try to always stay positive, viewing even negative situations as learning experiences that allow us to grow!
“R” is for relax and have FUN: it’s so important to not take anything to seriously. We don’t let bumps in the road bring us down, but rather try to enjoy every day. Taking some free time away from work doesn’t hurt either ;)
“T” is for tenacity: we believe in our products and are committed to seeing them succeed. We are constantly brainstorming ways to improve and expand our reach.
In the end, it all comes down to how we interact with our customers. So, when Valentine’s Day comes along, we take a few hours out of the day to remind some our most devoted customers how special they are to us. We send out valentines!
Filling red tubes and heart shaped boxes with candy, we think about how lucky we are to have such great customers that are really more like friends. Hopefully, when they receive their valentines in the mail, they can feel a little bit of the love we are sending their way.
We also celebrate by giving each other Valentine's day cards and sharing some sweet treats in the office! What do you do to celebrate Valentine’s Day? Maybe nothing at all, but we can still all think about ways (year round) to reach out to those we love and tell them how much we appreciate them. Even just a smile can go a long way!
Happy Valentine’s Day to all of our wonderful bloom girls! We love you!
XOXO, bloom daily planners
