Q: What does Yo and Nosotros mean? A: Well the translation from English to Spanish is as follows… Yo = I and Nosotros = We. BUT it means something more than that at Dos Gringos. Q: What else does Yo mean to DG? A: The YO’s are the things that we do individually every day as team members that makes DG a different kind of place to work. Q: What else does Nosotros mean to DG?
A: The Nosotros’ are the things that we do together as a team that makes DG a different kind of company to partner with.
Q: Can you break that down for me? A: Sure. YO’s are our core values that each team member strives to live by every day. See below…. Q: And Nosotros? A: And the Nosotros' are the things that we do as a team to try to make the world a little different than we found it. Q: Got it. Ok, so most companies just put their core values and their core purpose on a wall to impress clients when they visit. A: Ha! Ok, that might be true at some companies, but ours are part of our everyday life and how we manage the business. Q: Can you give me an example? A: Sure. Take PRIDE from the Yo list and our PURPOSE of bringing smiles from the Nosotros list. A Line Manager or a QC Manager can easily pick up an inferior bouquet off of the line and have a respectful conversation with the team member that made it. Q: What would that conversation look like? A: “Lucy, are you really proud of this bouquet and do you think that if you gave this to your grandmother it would bring a smile to her face?” “Well, not really”. “Ok, then remake this so you’re proud of it and it will make your grandmother smile :-) ” Q: I get it. So, these Yo’s and Nosotros’ are visible throughout the company. A: Absolutely! Not only in all the departments, but throughout our other locations. One team and one dream.
