The core values of TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® aren’t just a list of ideas, they’re a way of life that each team member in the system strives to live by daily, in both their professional and personal lives.
One example are team members that exemplify this motto set by our brand, who are consistent in making a positive impact for the customers we are moving forward. We have begun recognizing these team members as TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Move Heroes, and it’s a prestigious award given out to extremely deserving candidates.
This year at the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Annual Meeting in Colorado Springs, two system employees – Patrick Worthy and Stephan Eveland – were both honored as this year’s Move Heroes. Worthy is a training manager at the Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina location, and was recognized for his outstanding ability to always put others before himself in everything he does at work.
“Being nominated as a Move Hero winner was very humbling,” Worthy said. “I was honored to be recognized among my colleagues as one who conveys heart toward others, which is demonstrated by the energy given toward whatever task is before me.”
When Worthy found out he was nominated by his franchisee – Brooke Wilson – he found himself engulfed in emotion, and was extremely thankful to be honored for his work.
“Some of the swirling emotions that I felt when I found out I was the recipient of the Move Hero award were that of excitement and awe,” Worthy said. “I was totally surprised, and felt an overwhelming sense of joy and gratefulness to be acknowledged for serving.”
For Wilson, nominating Worthy was a no-brainer given the consistent level of customer service he provides and with the positivity he brings to the Durham office.
While there were numerous people around the office Wilson felt were deserving of the nomination, she felt Worthy truly exemplified what it meant to be a “hero”.
“Patrick is a mentor to our staff. He strives to create a positive influence in everything that he does, whether it’s with employees or customers,” Wilson said. “Through his actions, he represents the core values of business and communicates the importance of the core values in training our people, not just as a professional, but also in their personal lives.”
Wilson noted that Worthy stands for everything she hopes her employees at the Durham franchise stands for, and he carries himself like a leader throughout their community.
“Patrick is a true representation of what we want to see in all of our staff members,” Wilson said. “Someone that strives to positively influence those around them. In a training position for our business, he instills a commitment to care with all new hires. He leads by example, and mentors employees.”
Faith is also a major part of Worthy’s life, and something he tries to implement into every action. While he appreciates the accolades he has been able to receive, he’s more proud of the impact that he’s been able to make with those around him.
Moving forward, he said he plans on continuing to do what he does best – help people. He’s thankful for the opportunity TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® gives him, and he will continue to live by the core values that helped him earn the Move Hero award.
“What I do each day is try to implement the core values,” Worthy said. “The core values keep up with the standards of God – do onto others as you would have them do unto you. I’m grateful to be a part of a system that is much larger than me. To create culture that adheres to the core values takes each individual buying in. Every day I try to practice this with those I come in contact with.”
