WHAT IS tqSKILLS?
tqSkills‘ tagline, ‘True Quality is a Personal Choice™’ embraces a philosophy that the individual – whether in their personal, family, social, or work life – is the one who is ultimately responsible for their success and their happiness.
True Quality was one of numerous ‘business-focused’ productivity concepts in the 1980’s and 1990’s that was coupled by tqSkills‘ President, Steve Largy, with an eye on the reality of human nature and workplace reality. Thus was created a philosophy where the individual must be the first one to take responsibility and accountability for their own lives.
tqSkills recognizes that ‘getting there’ is not always an easy route. As a result, tqSkills recognizes the value of a life-long strong support structure comprised of family, friends, and society. There is a lot of truth to the adage that ‘…it takes a village to raise a child’.
tqSkills further applies its belief in the philosophy of ‘True Quality is a Personal Choice™’ in support of both the Employee and the Employer, in seeking strong, high performance workplaces where both the health of the Company and the health of the Employee combine to create a win-win success formula for all partners.
