On Wednesday, June 29th, SafeAuto Insurance associates were lucky enough to enjoy the beautiful weather for Summer Fun Day at the company headquarters in Columbus, Ohio. It is very important not to forget about the internal workings of a company, and SafeAuto does a great job taking care of its associates. The large windows at the SafeAuto building make it easy to daydream of summertime activities, so a day out in the sun was quite a pleasure.
First, employees were treated to a speech by motivational speaker Joe Malarkey. In his program “The Upside of Down”, he told of the differences between success and failure and noted that one should not assume that the two are opposites. Like his example Thomas Edison figured out, failure is actually just a part of success.
But Malarkey isn’t the only one who taught associates a little something about winning today; SafeAuto Racing Team driver Johnny Sauter stopped by for a meet and greet. Sauter joined SA associates for a barbeque luncheon and signed autographs afterward. One lucky raffle winner received two tickets to Johnny’s next race in Kentucky on July 7th where he will fight to keep his first-place rank in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. President Jon Diamond may want to take Sauter’s place in driver’s seat though; he joined in the fun and even jumped behind the wheel of the actual No. 13 racing truck.
Johnny Sauter’s trip to Columbus today provided a mixture of connecting with both fans and sponsors. “Being here showed how much the employees support me and the SafeAuto Racing Team. They kept congratulating me on my wins and wishing me a good season, and that means a lot,” Sauter said, “Hopefully we’re making everybody proud.”
We couldn’t be more proud, Johnny. Good luck on Thursday!
