By Rob Johnson, Senior Vice President of Belize Operations, Clear BPO

My colleagues in Belize know how one can breathe life into our core values.

Far too typically, we learn company statements that look nice on a well-designed web site accompanied by fantastic photographs. However hardly ever do these company values ​​or mission statements come to life like they not too long ago did for our colleague, Branson Rhaburn.

Branson’s home burnt down. The blaze consumed all the construction, and nothing was left of his house. Defective electrical was blamed for the spark that ultimately led to the fireplace and there was nothing Branson might do – he was at work 50 miles south in Belize Metropolis as his house went up in flames in Carmelita.

Information of Branson’s loss unfold as rapidly as the fireplace that destroyed his house. Quickly, his colleagues in Belize Metropolis and Belmopan had been speaking about what they may do for him. This wasn’t shocking. Previously, they’ve come to assistance from colleagues who had been dealing with mounting medical payments. Whenever you’re combating most cancers or recovering from a tragic accident, paying payments is an undesirable distraction. They took that burden away and in Branson’s case, they went one step additional.

They gave him a brand new home.

That is the place our dedication to make a distinction in the neighborhood got here to life. Clear BPO takes our 4 values ​​– Purchasers, High quality, Transparency, and Group – to coronary heart. We stay them day by day so it is per the angle and attributes we search for after we recruit new members to hitch us. Our enterprise choices display a duty to think about the affect our actions have on our colleagues in addition to taking steps which might be of their curiosity – resembling constructing a neighborhood transportation service offering our colleagues with a dependable choice to commute to and from work. This manner, they will save money and time by taking a Clear BPO bus to work.

… after we assist to carry a burden all of us can stand slightly taller.

And that is what number of of them met Branson.

He joined us in 2017 and has been primarily a bus driver for us. Anybody who rides considered one of our autos can count on to get a heat greeting from Branson, a proposal of assist, or a form phrase from him. Administration can all the time depend on him to step in to help the place additional palms are wanted.

Shortly after the fireplace, an inner notice circulated how one can assist Branson. A fund was initially established to assist him purchase some home items. Organizers did not count on to get sufficient to buy a prefabricated home for Branson.

Administration determined to match each greenback raised on a 2:1 ratio giving organizers virtually $16,000 (Belize {dollars}) to work with. Our Accounting Supervisor, Wallace Usher labored with the federal government to get the gross sales tax waived. They understood the worth of this trigger. As soon as all of the paperwork was accomplished, there was virtually $2,000 remaining to assist buy fixtures for the kitchen and toilet. And on a current Saturday, Branson, his supervisor, Bert Manzanares, and Wallace waited patiently for supply.

The home now sits on Branson’s property, not removed from the place his previous house as soon as stood.

A tragedy likes Branson’s fireplace illustrates the dedication we’ve to members of our neighborhood, whether or not it’s the broad neighborhood the place we stay or the one we construct for ourselves with associates, household and colleagues.

Our Clear BPO household demonstrated that when considered one of us suffers, all of us endure. And after we assist to carry a burden, all of us can stand slightly taller.
