UPDATES FROM RYAN
Goodwill Columbus Team,
On November 7th, I presented our updated organizational values and beliefs to the Goodwill Columbus management team. In short, organizational values are broad, guiding principles that define an organization’s culture and provide a moral compass for its actions. Organizational beliefs are specific opinions held by an organization on various issues.
You will hear more about our updated values and beliefs in the coming months from me and your managers. I have no doubt they will guide us towards achieving our goal of equipping 100,000 individuals with the tools to advance economic mobility through the power of work by 2030.
Thank you for your dedication and hard work in serving our community. Our shared commitment to these values and beliefs will enable us to make a lasting, positive impact.

A Veterans Day Message from Victor Johnson:
As a veteran, I understand the desire to pay tribute to those who have served in the Armed Forces. However, I would like to highlight the families that aren’t recognized. It’s difficult and there are no medals or ribbons for families. Let’s honor their sacrifice as well.
Wishing all veterans in and around Goodwill Columbus a very Happy Veterans Day.

Meet Robot Darryl!
Darryl, a Direct Support Professional at WCS, has been home with an injury and unable to work with clients face to face.
But thanks to the OSU Lending Library, WCS was able to install a robot Darryl so the real Darryl can still interact with his clients and coworkers until he’s healthy enough to return to work!
