Besides being a top hit song from Tina Turner, many people ask and wonder, "What's love got to do with it?", when it comes to the internal and business relationships of Paragon Films.
Back in 2004 Mike Baab, CEO and founder of Paragon Films, knew there needed to be a shift in the direction that Paragon was headed. That shift came when he read a book titled, Season of Life by Jeffrey Marx. "More than a quarter-century after they first knew each other as a professional football star and a ball boy for the Baltimore Colts, Joe Ehrmann and Jeffrey Marx once again crossed paths. The outcome was a remarkable journey through the greatest football season of all. It was really a season of life more than anything else." (www.jeffreymarx.org)
Through Marx's words and journey through this book, Baab was able to focus on what would be Paragon's new direction on how to do business - Love in the workplace.
I assure you, as a Paragon employee, this is the kind of love that teaches mutual respect for others. When I talk about loving others in the workplace, it means holding each other accountable to Paragon's values and mission statement. Love in the workplace means asking someone, whether in your department or not, if there is anything you can do for them. Love in the workplace means being honest and faithful to commitments when it comes to doing business with others. Love in the workplace means showing compassion and support for ideas and changes.
Love in the workplace is Paragon Films - We're in the people business, we just happen to make excellent stretch film too.
