Servant fièrement : Sobeys #640 Woodstock, ON

Poste : Grocery Clerk

Valeur fondamentale : Get it Done with Passion and Integrity

John joined Sobeys just over a year ago but has already made a big impression. Working as a receiver, John realized he could reduce the store’s environmental impact and reduce costs by putting more emphasis on the recycling program. He tries to make it as easy as possible to recycle and encourages staff to participate. « Like any new program, it takes people a while to get used to it. I spend a lot of time taking stuff out of the garbage. It’s like raising my children all over again, » laughs John. Coming from another company, John has a fresh perspective on his co-workers. « I find Sobeys employees to be more caring about their jobs. There seems to be a lot of camaraderie. » Living with integrity is important to John. « Henry Ford said ‘Do it right when nobody’s looking,’ » says John. « That’s what I try to do. »
