Keeping in touch with employees that are scattered around the country and constantly on the move can be a challenge. That’s why the GoJet leadership team makes it a priority to hit the road for Meet & Greet events a minimum of two times a year. During these trips, which typically take place in the spring and fall, the GoJet COO, as well as representatives from Inflight, Flight Operations and Maintenance, hit the road for two whirlwind weeks of base visits.
GoJet prides itself on its employee-focused corporate culture, and being in tune with issues that our employees care about is a top priority. “The Meet & Greets are a great way to chat with our team members in a casual setting about any feedback or concerns they may have,” said GoJet COO Terry Basham. “Email and phone calls are great for staying in touch on a day-to-day basis, but nothing can replace the one-on-one conversations that we’re able to have at these events.”
Director of Flight Operations Randy Bratcher echoed those sentiments, remarking “We’ve got a great group of employees who truly want our airline to be the best that it can be. I always leave the Meet & Greets with invaluable suggestions from our pilots.”
This round of Meet & Greets started on Tuesday with an after hours event in Raleigh-Durham for Raleigh-based employees. The following day, the team leaded to New York (on a flight piloted by none other than the Director of Operations and the Chief Pilot!) to meet with New York-based mechanics and crews connecting through La Guardia.
The second round of spring Meet & Greets will take the leadership team to Chicago and Denver. Here are some of our favorite pics from Round 1!
