Wakelight’s President & CEO, Joy Hess
Wakelight shows its employees an exceptional amount of loyalty and care. One Japan-based employee recalls the events surrounding the 2011 earthquake and tsunamis, “The company president affirmed to me her commitment to our overseas employees and their safety. She clarified Wakelight’s resolve to our wellbeing and immediate departure if we felt threatened, and she allowed herself and company resources to be available 24 hours a day, at a moment’s notice,” he says. “I have never worked for a company before that placed its employees before the bottom dollar, until I worked for Wakelight … While I watched employees from other companies desperately seeking answers for aid and assistance, Wakelight employees continued with their lives, confident of their futures, and sleeping a little easier knowing we had a company that cared about us.”
That care extends to the everyday, as well. Fostering open communication, creating a positive work environment, empowering employees, rewarding initiative and providing opportunities for professional growth are cornerstones of the Wakelight culture. Wakelight focuses on the personal strengths of each individual to maximize the results of the entire team.
The company culture is based on working together with mutual support, respect, trust and open and honest communication. Wakelight is committed to its employees; employees are committed to their customers’ success, and strive to create strong relationships through responsiveness to customer needs. It’s a win-win-win.
