Team Work: Launching "Inside Hyland's"
August 1, 2017 by Mary B.
Me, Hyland’s employee Luis Cisneros, his son, Tony and Margot Murphy Moore before Luis ran his first Boston Marathon on behalf of Hyland’s!
Every now and then, life gives us an opportunity to be part of something bigger, something special that proves “the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.” We all have individual goals, but now and then those goals match those of the people around us, and the results can be inspiring. You see this regularly in baseball: the pitcher can get outs, but he doesn’t play the game alone. He needs outfielders to catch the ball and hitters to score the runs. This is what it means to be a part of a team.
At Hyland’s, we work hard to ensure that we are all reaching toward the same goal. Each individual plays a part, maybe as a pitcher, hitter or outfielder, but when we collaborate, we become a team. Each individual contribution is small, but together, our team works towards the shared goal of serving our customers. Our customer’s satisfaction is always how we measure success.
For that reason, it’s been a tough season for all of us at Hyland’s. We have faced questions regarding the quality of our products, products that have been used for over 85 years and recommended by generations of moms. We could tell you again how much we have invested in making safe medicine, but we thought we’d use this blog to show you instead. That’s why we are excited to launch “Inside Hyland’s”, a new platform to share stories about the people and things that make Hyland’s tick and our commitment to make safe, natural and effective medicines every day.
Hyland’s has grown considerably in recent years - we now have almost 400 employees across the United States and Canada - and the activities and contributions of our employees have expanded, as well. For example, did you know that we just wrapped a second year sponsoring the Boston Marathon? We were grateful that Hyland’s Leg Cramps helped some of these runners cross the finish line for the first time! We got to be part of that – every member of the Hyland’s team has a role in getting that product out to those who need it. This is just one example of what our products and our company can do. But “Inside Hyland’s” will be about more than just us, it’s also about you. Our goal is to extend the Hyland's community and maintain the wonderful, small-company feel that is so deeply entrenched in our culture and values, even as we add new faces and continue to expand. We look forward to having you join us and let us know what you want to learn about us!
Few companies around today are over 100 years old. Even fewer continue to be led by the core mission established by their founder. We are proud to say today that we are one of them. Hyland’s and the Standard Homeopathic family of companies have been making safe and natural homeopathic medicines since 1903. And although the world has changed in the past century, as we enter our 114th year in business, the people behind Hyland’s continue to work tirelessly, powered by knowledge and motivated by integrity, to develop, manufacture and distribute high-quality homeopathic medicines for your family.
Looking forward to sharing more stories with you!
Sr. Director, Communications & Public Affairs
