Twice a year, PADT employees gather from around the country in our main office in Tempe for a company meeting. We get together in one room for about two hours to review the past 6 months, talk about what we have accomplished, what we are working on now, and where we want to be.
The spring meeting always starts with our annual company picture. We all get a new shirt with a PADT logo proudly embroidered on the left breast, and we stand in the heat glaring into the sun, each of us wondering if it really has already been 12 months since we last did this. The result came out pretty good:
With just over 70 employees on the payroll, we were lucky to get 60 who could make it to the picture and the meeting. That may be a record.
