As a Senior Benefits Administrator at Saddle Creek Logistics Services in Lakeland, Fla., Shaina Day has the opportunity to make a difference in people’s lives every day – and she makes the most of it.
“It’s nice to think I’m able to help associates when they have changes in their lives such as having a baby or getting married. We try to make the process as easy as we can and connect them with the right possibilities.”
When Shaina joined Saddle Creek in 2012, the company employed 1,200 associates. Today, there are almost 5,000.
“It is amazing to see how the company has grown, without losing sight of who we are. Saddle Creek still feels home grown,” she explains. “We have adapted to the changing world but kept our essence.”
The company never loses sight of its associates, Shaina says. “They care about the associates on an individual level.”
Shaina also credits her colleagues for helping to make Saddle Creek a great place to work.
“I love what I do, and the people I work with every day are a big part of that,” she says. “We count on each other. We connect with each other.”
In addition to helping employees, Shaina also helps to make a difference in the local community. She is responsible for two of Saddle Creek’s biggest corporate social responsibility initiatives in Lakeland.
She has been coordinating the company’s bi-monthly blood drives since 2014, and more than 700 associates have donated blood on her watch.
“Just taking 30 or 40 minutes to give blood can help to save three lives,” Shaina says. “You never know when your family is going to need it. It’s very important to get involved.”
Shaina also oversees the Toys for Tots program at Saddle Creek, and she’s proud to report that donations are increasing steadily. Since 2015, the Lakeland facility has collected more than 6,400 toys.
“We have impacted so many children,” Shaina says. “Knowing that we’re helping kids have a better Christmas and putting a smile on their faces... that’s amazing.”
Saddle Creek’s focus on giving back to the community is a key reason why Shaina comes to work every day.
“We share similar values. It’s very important to me to help, donate and contribute with others,” she says.
