Phoenix Integrated Store Consultants Supports National Networking Opportunities

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwired - Oct 2, 2015) - Market Manager CJ Young has recently announced that Phoenix Integrated Store Consultants will be expanding its organization once more, utilizing tools such as national networking events, in-house management training, and travel opportunities for management. The company, which was named as the top office in the country on September 24, 2015, has decided to open up several new Market Manager Positions. Assistant Managers, Leo Smith and Sydarrian Edwards, are currently training for their promotion at the Southeastern Leadership Meeting on October 7, 2015. Both started with Phoenix in entry level roles and have worked their way up to management through the leadership development program at Phoenix, which teaches team-building, communications, and marketing strategy.

In addition to seeing Smith and Edwards' promotions, Young asserted that the conference will give his employees a chance to network and see the bigger picture of the business, "opening their eyes to the overall experience." At Phoenix Integrated Store Consultants, networking is crucial to building a solid foundation for a long-term career. By creating a network of strong mentors, new marketing professionals at the company have the ability to learn from more experienced employees, leaders, and marketing specialists outside of the organization at conferences like the Southeastern Leader Meeting.

As a marketing firm that only promotes from within, Phoenix believes that the only way to grow is by investing in its employees. When asked about the upcoming promotions of Smith and Edwards, Young asserted, "These guys decided to invest time in our management training program rather than wasting time. Now, we plan on investing in them for doing the right things." At Phoenix, management and leadership roles are available to employees who have the drive, positivity, and professionalism that it takes to teach and train others. Newly promoted Campaign Manager, Brenton Smith, asserted, "I have found success at Phoenix by being a good student, staying motivated, and by knowing that there isn't a limit on how high I can go in the company."

Smith will be joining fellow Campaign Manager, Keaunna Trice, on a business trip to Newport Beach, California in November to tour the new facility, network with the headquarters team, and meet the founders of the business. As a former resident of Southern California, Smith expressed his eagerness for the trip, stating, "I am excited to go back and meet other people outside of the office here in Georgia. It will be a great opportunity to meet, learn, and network with others to help me improve on my weaknesses." Networking opportunities like this one provide Phoenix employees with the chance to learn and build on their current strengths. By taking the time to ask for advice and see what is working in other offices across the country, Phoenix hopes that its top employee will have the opportunity to learn and grow professionally in order to facilitate future success for the company.

At Phoenix, management takes a people-first stance from interactions with clients and their customers to developing employees toward career paths in the company. When asked about her experience going through management training and now as a manager, Trice asserted, "At Phoenix, it's not about numbers. It's about what you can do to duplicate yourself. I take pride in what I do." The culture at this company is truly about paying it forward to clients, customers, and community.

The company's community service initiative, Phoenix Cares, is kicking off another big month this October to support National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Having several members on staff who have friends and family currently battling with the disease, Community Service Advocate for Phoenix, Halie Waddell, exclaimed, "We want to support the members of our Phoenix Family and extended family in any way that we can. By taking this month to raise money and awareness for the cause, we hope to support our employees in the things that matter most to them and support our Atlanta community as a whole." Since its inception in April 2014, Phoenix Cares has helped the company support organizations such as the Wounded Warrior Project, Make-A-Wish Foundation of Georgia®, The Atlanta Community Food Bank, and Toys for Tots.

By supporting employees both inside and outside of the workplace, Phoenix Integrated Store Consultants plans to create a familial company culture centered on positive relationships, proactive workforce, and professional development. As one of Atlanta's Best and Brightest Companies to Work for in 2015, Phoenix champions altruistic ideals such as the public responsibility of local entrepreneurs. The Phoenix Cares initiative also helps add to the work-life balance that many Phoenix employees enjoy by giving them an outlet for community involvement at the workplace. Waddell asserted that the purpose of Phoenix Cares is to create a supportive work-environment where the company can support individual members of the staff in what matters most to them inside and outside of work.

While the company is currently partnering with over ten retail locations in the greater Atlanta area, the promotions of managers like Smith and Edwards are signaling even more growth for the company by the beginning of 2016. Managers like Smith are looking to build teams to assist with their ever-growing marketing campaigns from within fortune 500 retailers. When asked about the type of candidate that the company is looking for in order to facilitate this new growth, management replied that they will be searching for individuals who are competitive, energetic, and willing to learn. As a company that only promotes from within, all employees have the opportunity to become successful managers if they demonstrate integrity, drive, and the ability to duplicate themselves by training others.
