FORT SHAFTER, Hawaii - The Director of U.S. Army Installation Management Command-Pacific, Craig Deatrick, and Command Sergeant Major Jon Y. Williams, signed the IMCOM Leadership Pledge with several members of the IMCOM-Pacific team in attendance on Tuesday, Feb. 28, 2023 at IMCOM-Pacific headquarters.
The pledge represents the Command's long-term commitment to providing the best possible customer service to Soldiers, Families, and communities. It is based on the premise that excellence in customer service is a result of how an organization treats its employees. If employees have engaged and caring leaders, feel valued and respected for the work they do, are properly trained, and live the Army values, they will pass forward this positive attitude to their customers and co-workers.
During the signing ceremony, Deatrick emphasized the importance of the pledge and its role in shaping the command’s culture, saying, “By signing the IMCOM Leadership Pledge here today, we are reaffirming our commitment to every member of our team and to continually improving this organization.”
Williams echoed Deatrick’s remarks, stating, “Our success is directly tied to the success of our amazing people. By committing to this pledge, we are sending a clear message that we put our people first.”
IMCOM is a supporting command and a service provider organization, with programs and services that contribute to Army readiness. Since its inception, the IMCOM Leadership ledge has served as a visible symbol and a reminder to leaders that all employees deserve respect and the basic tools needed to be successful.
