Daphne’s overseas presence spans five continents and more than 75 countries. Golfers the world over love our headcovers! This tells me that a sense of humor must be a universal human quality. We know that our headcovers are popular not only for their creative designs, but for the durability of our quality product. Once you have a Daphne’s headcover, I want you to have it for life!
Here at Daphne’s, we value teamwork, which means, we value people. When each individual is able to share his/her unique gifts, we all benefit. My job is to create a work environment where individuals can flourish and be the best that they can be. I can think of no better examples of individuals working together for the greater good than our military men and women, who we honor on Memorial Day.
Memorial Day is observed on the last Monday of May, to honor and remember the men and women who died while serving in the nation’s armed forces.
Business Advice Build a successful company through shared values. What are some of those shared values that make for a successful team? Army, Navy and Air Force alike put integrity at the top of the list. I think of integrity as doing what is right even when no one is looking. Let’s say, the employee responsible for affixing eyes and noses to our lovable animal headcovers discovers a faulty piece. That person has a choice to make: speak up and find a replacement, even if finding the right part may mean working late, or installing the faulty piece anyway, for the sake of expediency. Who would ever know? Our customers, that’s who. That’s why one of Daphne’s core values is “always do what is right.” We value integrity.
On this Memorial Day, take a few moments to reflect on the men and women who sacrificed for their country, who did what was right even when no one was looking. We support our troops and thank them for their service.
Of course, making headcovers cannot be compared to the heroism of battle. We don’t operate in a war zone. Although it can be pretty chaotic when the container ships arrive and 30,000 headcovers are delivered to the warehouse in one day. But we realize that the success of any venture always comes down to the individual. We value people. Welcome to the wonderful world of Daphne’s.
