2018, like most of the past 8-10 years, was one filled with change and improvements at the William C Huff Companies. Our commitment to our people, our communities and to our environment is a driving force which propels us ever further into being the company we want others to follow. Here is a glimpse of what was accomplished in 2018.
We began 2018 with a commitment to digitalizing our company so that more “would be clients” could find our services. In doing so, this will ensure guaranteed employment and job advancement for our staff. After reading a Forester Research report in late 2017 on the importance of digitalizing companies in the coming 3 years, we hired someone who knows quite a bit about this process. One of the things the Forester Report indicated was that we would begin seeing the demise of companies with 100 year old histories close their doors in 2018…boy they were right. Sears and Robuck was a prime example and another well-known company, Toys R Us, closed its doors in 2018! About 75 blogs and 100’s of social media posts later, our company is beginning to see the results of these efforts. Often my staff will come into the office early to get ready for a road trip and find me typing away on the computer with the next blog to be posted (like this morning at 5:30). I remind everyone on staff that, even though they likely know more about how to navigate the world of social media, I am committed to making sure we stay on-track to transform our company into a “digital giant”…J They always just laugh but, I know they appreciate what I try to do for them.
For many years we have made a commitment to support various local community groups. Each year it seems we get involved with one or two more because it is hard to say “no” to a good cause. Although we do logistics and financially support more than 20 different organizations, I would like our clients and potential clients to know what we were able to accomplish this year with just a few of the groups.
This is, by far, our greatest challenge. 2018 saw record changes in our local environment with the impact of Irma lingering throughout the year and a Red Tide of epic proportion. Unfortunately, politicians and, even “environmentalists” waste way too much time pointing fingers but do NOTHING about our climate problems. If 2019 has similar environmental issues the local economy will be in grave danger. I often say that if everyone who publicly announces the problems actually personally did something, than the problem would be on its’ way to being solved. Here’s what the William C Huff accomplished in 2018 for the environment:
I reviewed the total number of clients we had in 2018 and compiled a list of things that were accomplished in 2018 because of what we have given back. Here is what each of our clients was able to do individually by hiring the William C Huff Companies:
I would have a very good case to state that the William C Huff Companies is the “Greenest Moving and Storage Company in the US”. And, that we, dollar for dollar, give back to the local community more than any other company in our industry. As a good friend of mine pointed out in a great re-post of an article on Facebook, where a well accomplished athlete gave credit, not to himself but, to the team which supported him, I would like to do the same by thanking our incredible clients for helping us to do so much for so many others. We could not be who we are without the AWESOME clients we have. Thank you, thank you, thank you for choosing our services in 2018. You have made a world of difference and we look forward to doing even more in 2019!!
