Service — Do the Right Thing

What does service mean to you? Does it simply mean helping someone? Is it a commitment to top-notch assistance or advice? Or does it involve having a connection to the community? Is it a practice? Is it a habit? Is it an art?

At ArcStone, our interpretation spans all of these definitions. We’re committed to providing helpful, friendly, responsive service in an advisory role and a “roll up your shirt sleeves” role. We’re also dedicated to being involved in our community and making the world a happier place.

Our next Happy(our) focuses on our value of Service at work; our commitment to our customers, and our connection to the community, and to each other.

We’ve recruited three experts — Janet Hallaway, Lexi Reed Holtum, and Tim McNiff — to discuss their approach to service. Our panelists will explore what service means to them. We’ll also discuss the challenges and rewards that are inherent to living a life dedicated to service. Learn and be inspired by our panelists — incorporate their hard-won lessons into your own approach to service.
