A Thoughtful Boss in the Making

It's my Life, professionalism No Comments »

I was on the phone with ney this afternoon for our usual hello and how are you session. Having a contractor business really needs him to be on site all the time. They have a new project somewhere in Atimonan, which according to him will take years to be completed. As we speak, he said that their heavy equipment operators are not getting any younger and these men have been with their company for years. He said that he is thinking of getting them disability insurance. He said that he will double check their earnings and if their company can afford, they will shoulder it and might enroll them for physician disability insurance as well. He said that the kind of work these men face everyday is a high risk for their lives.

Ney said that he values these men so much, because without them and their skills, who then would operate their equipment and work on their projects?

Well, I told ney that he will really be a good boss when his father retires and he will be the one to run their business. He actually asked me to find disability insurance quotes for their employees. :)

Value of a Professional

My team leader asked us earlier to clean up our inbox. Upon doing so, i found several emails that are really meant for sharing.. here’s one:

 Ever heard the story of a giant ship engine that failed? The ship’s owners tried one expert after another, but none of them could figure out how to fix the engine. Then they brought in an old man who had been fixing ships since he was a youngster. He carried a large bag of tools with him, and when he arrived, he immediately wen to work.

He inspected the engine very carefully, top to bottom. Two of the ship’s owners were there, watching this man, hoping he would know what to do. After looking things over, the old man reached into his bag and pulled out a small hammer. He gently tapped something. Instantly, the engine lurched into life. He carefully put his hammer away. The engine was fixed.

A week later, the owners received a bill from the old man for ten thousand dollars.

“What?” the owners exclaimed. “He hardly did anything!”

So they wrote the old man a note saying, “Please send us an itemized bill.”

The man sent a bill that read:

Tapping with a hammer ………………………………………………….$2.00

Knowing where to tap …………………………………………………….$999.00

”Effort is important, but knowing where to make an
effort in your life makes all the difference..”
