Go Behind the Scenes With a New Employee at NCG, Inc

NCG, Inc in Trumbull, CT is a firm that prides themselves on providing opportunities for their employees to grow personally and professionally in a team-based environment. We decided to see how one of their new employees felt about his experience thus far to see if the stories matched up. Spoiler alert: they did.

Gregory Benson, from Southport, CT has been with NCG, Inc for under a month, which, as he told us, ‘is hard to believe because I already feel a part of the team.’ He joined the team with a Bachelors from Sacred Heart University and is currently a few classes away from achieving his MBA.

“There was a multitude of reasons that I accepted the job at NCG, Inc,” explained Gregory. “I first met with Jolene through the interview process and realized that she is intelligent, ambitious and professional, all while being personable and funny. I am a believer that we buy into people more than ideas and it didn’t take me long to realize she was someone I wanted to be led by.”

Here were a few of the other reasons Gregory decided to pursue a career with the Trumbull firm:

The opportunity to control his own fate – “I came from a large corporation where it felt like my long-term goals were jeopardized by internal politics. The chance to feel as though my hard work would directly correlate to results was refreshing, especially when a timeline of my success was clearly laid out by the company. It was also made clear to me that personal development was just as important as anything else that the job entails, which was key for me,” explained Gregory.

The energy he felt during his interviews –  Gregory told us that was enough to convince him that he would fit in at NCG, Inc. “I have always been the one running around and yelling with passion whether the sun was rising or setting. While sitting in the lobby I would always hear people shouting with passion as they pumped themselves up in the morning (as I’m sure our neighbors love so early in the morning.)”

It was a chance to be around like-minded people – “I’m dedicated to building a successful career irrespective of the sacrifices it will take and I knew at NCG, Inc I wouldn’t be alone in that quest. I have found it challenging to find people that want to work really hard,” added Gregory.

“Iron sharpens iron, and I knew that being around motivated, hard-working people would only make me better.”

Gregory also discussed how the marketing techniques used at NCG, Inc are not flashy but are extremely effective. “They teach straightforward, disciplined marketing approaches that anyone can learn if they are willing to study and make the sacrifices necessary to succeed. That being said, I’ve learned these systems to the point that they are nearly thoughtless reflexes, which I consider an accomplishment,” added Gregory. He also highlighted the structured and detail campaign and client product knowledge he has gained in such a short amount of time, proving the training methods are working well!

As we wrapped up our time getting to know Gregory, he told us his goals moving forward. They started with continuing to grow personally and he is confident that he is in the best place to do so. This is what he said in regards to advancing within the company; “I am excited for my promotion to a leadership role. I want to be someone that can set an example on the team for future members to follow. Down the road, I am excited to develop my own team. The same way that my managers are dedicated to helping us grow, I want to serve my team, which will be extremely rewarding to me.”

NCG, Inc Employees Receive National Recognition

NCG, Inc in Trumbull, CT recently had two of their top employees selected to attend a private weekend seminar in California for up and comers in the sales and marketing industry. Emily Ngaopraseutsack and Chris Hurylovich earned this huge recognition through their ability to deliver high-quality results for clients as well as their leadership within the company. Emily shared her experience with us about their recent trip, check it out!

After their direct flight from Boston to LA, Chris and Emily waited at the airport for ncg-inc-trumbull-topgun-2another seminar attendee who was coming in from St. Louis around the same time. They all took an Uber together to the Palm Garden Hotel in Thousand Oaks, CA, where they were staying. That night the only thing open was Del Taco, so they enjoyed late night tacos before finding personal goodie bags in their hotel rooms provided by the host of the seminar.

The following morning’s breakfast was held at Brendan’s Irish Pub and was followed by a bus ride to the seminar. Their day of meetings consisted of hearing successful business leaders speak on varying topics, learning about new technology coming to the sales and marketing industry, as well as learning about the personality evaluation, DISC.

Emily’s favorite speaker was a female CEO because “she is a woman and she can run a business as well as be with her family. I love her intensity and conviction when speaking to people. She likes to keep us engaged and thinking. She doesn’t tell us what to do but she asks us what we think and we answer the questions ourselves,” explained Emily.

That afternoon they were able to have professional headshots taken before attending the “social sip” for cocktails and networking with everyone. Dinner was held at Twisted Oak Tavern and the attendees ended their night back at Brendan’s Irish Pub at the hotel.

ncg-inc-trumbull-topgun-3Saturday was a fun filled day! Once in Hollywood, the NCG, Inc duo along with their peers, took a double-decker tour bus to learn about the history of Hollywood. Some highlights were the famous Chinese theater, Paramount Pictures, Marilyn Monroe’s old and new apartment, Cross Road of the World, and Beverly Hills. The tour bus dropped everyone off at the Saddle Ranch for lunch and drinks in Hollywood where they got to ride the mechanical bull! From Hollywood they traveled to Santa Monica, sightseeing at the Navy Pier, having dinner at Bubba Gump and finishing out the evening at a local hotspot, The Bungalow.

Emily told us that after this trip she is extremely proud of herself for how far she has come in developing as a professional but is even more excited to get back to NCG, Inc to share all of this knowledge with the rest of the team.

“I realized how my mentality affects my life’s choices. I choose to do what I want, no one can take anything away from me. Anything is possible if I just put my mind and hard work into it. The quote I like to live by is ‘What I put into it is what I get out of it.’ This is, in fact, true because if I am hardworking, determined, and highly motived, I will go far in life because I know I will keep my eye on the prize. This truly was a changing experience! Thank You to Jolene Foor of NCG, Inc for sending me to this seminar because she believed in me and achieving my goals.”
