An Insider's view of Toastmasters International

What are some social events your company does?

We have an event every day to give employees an opportunity to build relationships across teams. Hot wing eating contest, ping pong tournament, costume contest, a magician, food trucks, completing a 5K together, sporting event ticket giveaways, supporting other local nonprofits, diversity pot luck and even a singing telegram are a few examples.


Talent Acquisition and Retention Specialist

What projects are you most excited about?

I am most excited about translating more marketing and promotional materials. These will allow members to advertise more effectively in their native language, making it easier for them to expand their club membership. This in turn will lead to more successful non-English speaking clubs and more opportunities for non-English speakers overall.


Translations Project Coordinator

What makes someone successful on your team?

Our team is very collaborative. While each person might have a specific discipline, we all know how to rely on each other's strengths and support each other's deficiencies. We encourage our team to improve, learn, and take ownership. Someone that is confident and competent in their field with a desire to improve would thrive on our team.


Digital Marketing Manager

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

I make myself available by having one to one meetings, daily question sessions, and checking in with the team regularly. I also answer employee questions about the Board and processes. This helps our teams stay connected.


Executive Services Manager

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

We have an open-door policy. In addition to regular meetings to discuss status and issues with the entire team, I have weekly one-on-ones with every team member. We actively use Microsoft Teams to communicate and resolve real-time issues. Any team member can bring to attention any issue at any time and does not have to wait for formal meetings.
