Some of the things working with BEST has taught me is team work, clear communication, and being flexible, they’re all very important dynamics to a workplace environment and BEST incorporates them in the best way I’ve seen. What BEST means to me is always being there for other, and doing your best to help out in any way you can. BEST is like its own mini community, everything working together to achieve a common goal, to better our surroundings for everyone.
