At ImageFIRST Healthcare Laundry Specialists, we pride ourselves in constantly upholding our company’s purpose: “To build a great company by positively impacting the lives of our associates, our community, our customers, and their patients.”
In a story from our Atlanta branch, which provides scrub uniforms in Lagrange, GA and nearby areas, living our Purpose was able to turn an ImageFIRST associate into a future customer.
We encourage every associate to continuously improve themselves. One way we help them to do so is by offering a Tuition Reimbursement Program, which is available to any associate who is looking to further their education with a college degree.
One recent example came from our ImageFIRST Atlanta location, where many associates want to go back to school to learn different languages. One outstanding associate, Diana Gutierrez, has been with ImageFIRST for over a year. In that time, she became inspired enough by the company’s work to enroll in the Tuition Reimbursement Program in hopes of becoming a nurse.
Not only will ImageFIRST help her pay her tuition, but her managers are looking for ways to immediately expose Diana to parts of the company’s operations that will give her direct contact with the medical facilities’ professionals and allow her to get a glimpse of their daily routine.
Diana will participate in riding along with the Customer Advocates so she can interact with nurses at the medical facilities that ImageFIRST Atlanta serves. This way, she will be able to see first-hand what medical facilities are like, be exposed to their challenges, and understand the impact that nurses have on patients.
ImageFIRST will support Diana every step of the way as she strives to begin a new career path. “We truly take pride in associates achieving their best at ImageFIRST,” stated Magali Tranié, Director of Marketing. “This is a wonderful example of how our Purpose comes full circle and turns an associate into a future customer.”
Every day, ImageFIRST goes above and beyond delivering medical uniforms and scrubs to Macon, GA and other locations. We are impacting the daily lives of associates and customers alike in a positive way through everything we do.
