Work Proud - October 2023


At PLK Communities, we take immense pride in recognizing and celebrating outstanding achievements within our organization. Today, we are delighted to shine a spotlight on Gerry Gooding, our exceptional Maintenance Lead at Gantry and the esteemed recipient of the October 2023 Work Proud award.

Gerry's Remarkable Impact at Gantry:

Since joining our PLK family in October, Gerry has showcased an unwavering dedication to his role and a genuine commitment to our core values. His impact at Gantry has been transformative, earning him glowing reviews and heartfelt commendations from his team.

🏡 "Gerry is the definition of a rock star! He has taken complete Ownership of Gantry, and the residents absolutely love him. Always positive, always ready to do whatever it takes to get the job done. I am incredibly fortunate to have him on my team," expresses a colleague.

🌐 "Gerry joined us during a challenging time at Gantry. He quickly adapted, making the property his Own. The day we offered Gerry the Lead Position and a spot within the PLK family was an honor, as he embodies all PLK values and enhances everything and everyone around him," adds another team member.

Insights from Gerry:

In a recent conversation with Gerry, we delved into the keys to his success, the core value that resonates with him, and his proudest moments since joining PLK.

🔑 Key to Success: "I believe in working hard and doing right by people. What goes around comes around. My family pushes me to do better and be better. I am where I am today because they believed in me."

💼 Core Value Representing Him: "Ownership. I came into Gantry with ideas to improve the community, and now I see those ideas being brought to light. I Own every challenge brought my way. If I don't have an answer, I won't stop until I find one."

🏆 Proudest Moment: "Volunteering at the Free Store Food Bank was an amazing experience. I felt like I was giving back to the community. A truly proud moment, and I can't wait to do it again."

🌍 Top Destination on His Must-See List: "The Bahamas. I'll get there one day, LOL!"
