A smile might seem like a little thing to give someone. In this episode of We are John Deere, Pete Vincent explains that simple acts of kindness like a smile or a wave are one of the most meaningful things a person can offer to someone new coming into a large company where they might feel intimidated. As a wage trainer at John Deere Dubuque Works, Vincent and his team are often the first people to greet new employees.
“The great part about my job is that I get to introduce new employees to the company. We’re the face of the company … the first friends that they make … the first people that they associate with the company,” Vincent says. He adds that it’s one reason why he works hard to create a good first impression. “We help instill in them what it means to work at John Deere. We’re all in this together.”
