Reasons We Rock!

Our goal at Block by Block is to create a place where ‘you’d be excited to refer a friend to work’. Even though there may be many miles between our headquarters in Louisville and where you work, we feel it’s important to provide ways for you to stay connected to fellow Ambassadors across the country and to insure you’re part of the many great things going on in our company. Additionally, we want to create unique perks, which make working at Block by Block feel different than other places. To put it simply, culture is really important to us!

 

We firmly believe that you selected us as an employer, as much as we selected you to be part of the team. For this we are extremely grateful.

 

We’ve worked hard over the last few years to create a number of ways to ‘Connect and Share’ with every Ambassador in order to keep you plugged in and to share our appreciation for you. Highlighted below are some of the things as an employee of Block by Block you can look forward to.

SMS Cares

When our fellow employees suffer tragedy, we want to lend a helping hand. By working together through the SMS Cares Fund, we can provide vital assistance to our coworkers, or request help for ourselves when we’re in need.

SMS Cares is a natural disaster and personal tragedy relief fund that was created in response to Hurricane Katrina and other Gulf coast hurricanes in 2005 that devastated the region. SMS Cares has continued to help many families throughout the nation, who have been affected by personal tragedy. Some have been victims of random acts of violence, others are hit with unexpected healthcare issues or deaths in the family.

To find out how you can help or apply for assistance visit www.smscares.com

Activities

Whether it’s our annual Safety Day Celebration, our Ice Cream Social, or Holiday Parties and Contests, we’re always carving out time to relax and have fun as a group. As you can see, our culture is very important to us and we believe that these activities bring work families closer together as a team. Now who would have thought work could be fun? Our Ambassadors are making people smile and giving help where they can every day and we like to give our appreciation as much as possible with these fun activities. There’s something for everyone.

Your Birthday is a Holiday!

That’s right, you read it correctly! We celebrate your birthday like a holiday at Block by Block! Every employee - both full time and part-time - is eligible for Birthday Pay after one year of service. How cool is that? This unique benefit hopefully demonstrates to you the importance our company puts on celebrating your special day.

Two last points in closing. First, get to know your employee handbook. If you have a question about working at Block by Block, chances are it’s answered in the handbook. Second, please don’t ever underestimate the importance of your work. When you see that new business or new building going up in your city it’s because someone felt safe enough and thought the area was clean enough to invest their hard earned money. These buildings are the developments that are making our cities fun, interesting, and exciting again. Your smile and your hard work matters – every day. We are extremely proud of the journey that we are on, and we are grateful that you are on our team.
