“In my orientation, I read in the core values a line that stuck out to me. “We laugh every single day.” During my 1st week, I was with Joshua Gámez doing site inspections and he asked two team members if they had laughed yet today. The team members said not yet; it’s only 8 AM. Joshua told them to stop what they were doing and see if we can get you laughing right away.”
