Most of the time, we tell ourselves sentences that make us feel a little sour. “I could have done better than them.” Without being aware of it, we look for a job that fits us the best, that we can show our full potential by doing it. At Michaels, there is a working environment that you can be the best version of yourself. Come work at Michaels and let the creativity happen!
Michaels is crafting a new culture weaving a stronger fabric for the company’s transformation. The company realized that their culture was confused because they hadn’t defined a North Star, a purpose. This year with the help of culture surveys, culture workshops, teaching and helping people build culture skills the community initiatives started to create a community in the stores and connected with the customers. The company focus on three buckets: people, technology, and diversity and inclusion. And they claim to see a tremendous change in how the organization is working together.
