Employee of the Month - Meet Michael!

It’s my pleasure to announce the Employee of the Month for June is none other than Michael Jordan from Customer Support. Michael is the point of contact for every customer issue and request. Think of him as the jacket placed over the puddle that keeps our shoes dry from our customer’s muddy opinions. Here’s a request Michael, tell us something about yourself!

- Cathy Bertris, HR

I originally applied for a copy editing position but was told Customer Support was a great way to get my foot in the door. Support is fine, although I do get yelled at a lot via customer emails, phone calls, live chat, social media posts, social media direct messages, snail mail, faxes and the occasional walk-in that gets security. It used to really bother me but these days I feel pretty numb, which is fine. 

Michael Jordan, Customer Support.

Office Update 6/14/17

Please find the attached, updated company directory. We have gone ahead and removed employees from the directory who we plan to terminate later this week. This saves us time by not having to update the directory again and allows those employees to get a head start on their extended weekend plans.

Office Update 6/7/17

We have ordered more building access cards. If you’re one of the many without one please email HR to be added to the list. If you have an access card please do not use it to open doors for others. Just assume anyone without a card is disgruntled, dangerous and possibly my ex-husband.

Employee of the Month - Meet Garet!

Congratulation to Garet H. Wilson for earning Employee of the Month! You may not recognize Garet by his name or face but he is actually kind of important around here. If your computer breaks just grab Garet. Can’t remember the Wifi password? Just grab Garet! You’d recognize him if you saw him. Here is Garet in his own words.

Davra asshekh rhojosor ki Corporate Ladder!

That's Dothraki for ‘Good Day, family of Corporate Ladder’ and I'm Garet. You might know me as captain of the SS HP OfficeJet Pro and all things tech. When I'm not fixing user errors, I am offering support for my paintball clan, Tanagra, with my accurate paintball grenade throws.

I am from Providence, RI, and received my Bachelor of Computer Information Systems from Quinnipiac University (and an English minor!).

Before CL, I worked the IT help desk at Menards as a Level 1 support specialist, where after a scant 17 months, I was promoted to a Level 2 support specialist.

If you ever leave the office to grab lunch, shoot me an email. I’d love to know where everyone runs off to.

-Garet H. Wilson, I.T.

Employee of the Month - Meet Oscar!

Congrats to Oscar Wallace from Accounting for earning Employee of the Month! Oscar is a sweet, thoughtful,  and interesting man. Most importantly, he really is someone you can count on. Learn more about Oscar in his own words!

- Cathy Bertris, HR

I am not really sure what I did to get employee of the month but thanks. I am supposed to talk about myself but maybe this is a good medium to remind everyone to please tape your receipts to your expense reports. Staples are no good. I mention this a lot but so far nothing has improved. Also, in my free time I like to cook.”
