Able's You2 (squared) Movement Raises the Bar for Mission, Vision, and Values to New Level

Company's You2 (squared) Movement breaks from the rhetoric of corporate past to accommodate a rapidly changing workforce that wants more than a memo

MANASSAS, Va., Aug. 30, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- "Statements about visions and values have been helpful for Able in the past," says President Joe Singleton, "but our leadership team found it was time to step up our strategic approach to something that employed these concepts in more of an interactional way."

Able's You2 Movement acknowledges employee contributions that are unusually significant with a company medallion featuring the movement logo. Displaying proficiency with and an understanding of the movement to a supervisor will allow the Movement's logo to be featured in an employee's email signature. Customers will be able to click on a page explaining what it means, and they will see the movement's logo on every one of Able's trucks in the near future.

You2 company facilitator Gary Corbett also believes the days of the stagnant manifesto are over. "This movement creates a dynamic platform to hold each other accountable at every level of the organization for standards of behavior that can constantly be growing."

Triple digit annual growth in many of its divisions, real estate expansions, doubling its company payroll in five years, and even receiving the Independent Mover of the Year Award from the American Moving and Storage Association this year have nudged Able to the forefront of the regional moving industry.

Chief Operating Officer Steve Kuhn is especially proud of the non-wavering quality of services offered by Able during this slingshot growth. "We lead the industry in employee retention, lack of damage claims, and safety scores," he says, "and we always will."

Director of Commercial Operations and former Office Movers executive Mike Murphy has overseen the launch of the You2 Movement, and recognizes its unifying effect from his time as a U.S. Marine. "The Movement's stickiness has been immediately apparent," he remarks, "Fostering the interest and energy of those who want to come to Able to be part of a winning team is easier with a great message."

Former Washington Redskin and Field Operations Manager for Able Lemont Jeffers recognized a winning strategy immediately when his teams adopted the Movement without question. "You know you have a winner when people are talking about it. I was at Office Movers for 30 years and never saw anything like this. It was always grind, grind, grind. Able teams are doing what need to be done, not what they are asked to do," Jeffers says.  

Founders Joe and Jim Singleton see doubling down on the family company's success by investing in the You2 Movement a natural evolution of the smart growth that has characterized their company's actions since its inception in 1987. "31 years of stepping aside and listening to the ideas of our employees got us where we are today, and it will take us where we are going tomorrow," they both agree.
