At Wasco, words matter. There is a reason we have “team members” and not employees. When you are part of a team, it’s important to know not only what you are working towards but also why you are working. An employee has a job and works for a boss. A team member has a role and works towards a purpose. We use what we have, communicate, collaborate, and cooperate.
