Being active in the community is not just a common practice with Exodus Moving and Storage, it’s a passion. We put in time, effort and resources when and wherever we can and it is truly our delight to see the positive impact that we can make in the lives of those around us. Giving is a shared experience that benefits those giving and receiving. And as a leader in our industry, we strive to lead by example, putting our energy towards showing other businesses that we can make a difference by working together.
Last week we had the pleasure to participate once again in an annual event called the Fairy Godmother Project. With the careful organization this year on the part of Dee Valdez, this national phenomenon has once again found a home here in Colorado and we have been very proud to support its worthwhile efforts.
What is the Fairy Godmother Project?
The Fairy Godmother Project is a donation based annual boutique that gives economically disadvantaged teenagers who cannot afford expensive Prom and other formal event attire the opportunity to receive help. Various states participate in this drive and several collection points are set up throughout a city and then consolidated and showcased for selection. VIP teens can be nominated for special consideration and then the boutique opens to the public and survives completely on a “pay what you can” basis. The boutique in Loveland usually runs several hours per day throughout Prom season and is able to help hundreds of high school students from Northern Colorado and beyond. Including information on acne treatment, makeup and hair tips as well as other helpful additions for teens, this spring time event is a great way to support students during what could otherwise be a very insecure season in their lives.
Happy to have been storing dresses of all colors and sizes in one of our state of the art storage facilities, Exodus has donated both space and time to this worthwhile event and we are honored to contribute to its ultimate success.

In 2007 Kris Boesch began to dream up a way to highlight companies who take good care of their employees. As a long time mover and shaker in the business world, she had come to excel at the fine art of employee retention, fearlessly leading by example as the CEO of our company. With an innate understanding of what it took to keep those whom she employed happy and a desire to showcase other companies that also made their people their number one priority, she set forth to create the organization Choose People.
What is Choose People
From the beginning, Kris understood that the ultimate success of a company was the result of a very simple system of giving. With so much competition in the marketplace, consumers favor companies that take good care of them- providing superior products and superior customer service. It seemed logical that superior customer service comes from employees that have a positive outlook on where they work and ultimately on their lives in general. So the key to happy customers is happy employees. Positive Work Environment= Happy Employees, Happy Employees= Well Serviced Customers, Well Serviced Customers= a Successful Company.
A national certification to recognize businesses that treat their employees well, Choose People measures how happy employees are in their workplace based on researched criteria. Identifying factors like how safe employees feel and how much feedback they get about their work ultimately gives a view on how likely they are to remain with the company. This qualitative designation serves as a symbol for what is most unique and important within an organization, its human capital.
Choose People Criteria
After over 1000 hours of professional research including the creation of a test referred to as an EOP survey ( Employee Organizational Perceptions) administered to 1000 employees in 18 different organizations, enough information was collected to create a system by which Choose People evaluates companies for potential certification. The final EOP survey includes 8 subscales and 52 items which allows Choose People to procure a candid window into a company’s employee’s everyday experiences, attitudes and ultimate perspective about their working lives.
In our post earlier this week we were excited to announce one of our newest national certifications indicating the values we strive to uphold here at Exodus. Being Choose People certified means that we have been tested in 8 different categories in an effort to quantify how we treat our employees. By receiving this honor, we are proud to be recognized as a place where employees thrive and are happy to come to work. As an organization with one of the lowest employee turnovers in our industry in the whole country, we are excited that those who work for us feel like family.
Who Needs Choose People
Choose People has created their national certification program to benefit all parts of the business cycle including companies, employees and consumers. By impacting all human capital in this cycle, the positive effect on the community is a natural result. But who specifically should be interested in working with Choose People? The list starts at the very highest level and ends with the most basic user.
Investors & Business Leaders- Those looking to put their money into the development of a company will select a company over its competition that keeps its employees happy and has low employee turnover. Generally a place with happy, productive employees also provides a solid and positive bottom line.
Marketers- It is well known that leveraging your human capitol and the positive work environment can bring strength to a brand. When marketers are highlighting what separates one company from the next, this certification can be a valued addition.
HR Departments & Employees- Employee retention makes human resources more about enriching the lives of its current employees and less about hiring new ones. Choose People certification can increase moral and a sense of company pride. Conversely, when it does come time to hire new employees, this certification can aid in recruitment by serving as a sign to good people that good jobs are available in a good company.
Consumers- Choose People certification gives conscientious consumers the ability to reward companies that care about their employees. By using their buying power to support these organizations, the public can contribute to general positivity in the community at large.
At Exodus we are high on the tide of thankfulness during this season of giving. Its important to us that we not only show gratitude to our community but also to our employees. As a local business with national capabilities, we understand that it is the people involved that make our every day special. In asking our employees what they were most thankful for during this time of year we found ourselves grateful for their responses.
I am thankful for my husband, my children and my faith. I am thankful for a warm home, enough to eat and clothes to wear. I am thankful to work for Exodus – a company founded on honesty, integrity and hard work. ~Lisa
Being a part of this company makes me realize what a work family is really all about. I am thankful to all of you! ~Joel
Happy Thanksgiving from Exodus!

“We can begin by doing small things at the local level, like planting community gardens or looking out for neighbors. That is how change takes place in living systems, not from above but from within, from many local actions occurring simultaneously”
