Our collaborative culture is a huge part of why our agents are so successful. Especially now as many in our company continue to work from home, we know that staying connected and transparent is crucial to giving agents the kind of support they need to keep growing their businesses.
That’s why at the start of the COVID-19 lockdowns, we began hosting bi-weekly virtual meetings with Steve Baird and the rest of the company. Our “Baird Briefings” are a way for Steve and other leaders throughout the company to connect and share company news, market advice, and encouragement directly with our agents and employees. Every session ends with Steve responding to questions from anyone in the company.
In a recent briefing, Steve shared how proud he was at how our people across the company were quick to deal with the uncertainty of the past six months. “Seeing our people at all levels of the company jump in and figure out what to do in an unstable environment reaffirms just how solid they truly are.”
And as many of our agents face uncertainty because of unrest in the city or concerns as the pandemic continues, Steve has offered confidence in Chicago’s resilience and our ability to continue to meet challenges as individuals, as a company, and as a community.
“I have so much respect for our company and what we’ve built — I know that we can deal with anything. Whatever’s happened in the last 165 years, we’ve been able to adjust and it’s because we have really great people who are well-positioned to meet the needs of our customers.”
Whether it’s pivoting to move our entire training program online, continuing to bring in industry experts for exclusive virtual events, or staying connected and transparent — we make sure our agents have everything they need to be successful.
