Portraits of the American Work Family: Learn why they make the most of all of life’s celebrations.

Golden Openings is more than an event company that helps its customers celebrate big events. It’s a company that also celebrates all of life’s moments with each other — like when they won the 2017 MetLife & U.S. Chamber of Commerce Dream Big Small Business of the Year award. Founder Kimberly Baeth knew the award reflected everyone’s hard work and passion.  That’s why she made sure her team was in attendance at the Chamber’s small business conference in D.C. to celebrate the recognition together.

Kimberly not only believes in giving employees a welcoming place to work and a sense of purpose, she also creates an environment where the personal comes first. Whether someone needs a day off, or if they have good news to share, the team is there. When someone buys a house, the coworkers are the first to celebrate it. If someone’s having a bad day, it’s not uncommon for lunch or a motivational note to appear on his or her desk. And when someone is having a great day, the joy is infectious.

This group of hard-working, enthusiastic employees is made stronger by the sentiment they all share that they’re more than a company. They’re a family.

For many small business owners, this is just a way of life. Fostering an atmosphere of family makes a difference for your company. MetLife offers benefit solutions to help protect your work family, and take care of your employees the way they take care of you.
