In our first AHOD meeting of the year we looked ahead and communicated our vision for 2020. Department heads stood in front of the entire company and shared the expectations they had for their team. Stating a clear vision of how their department will enable the success of our clients.
One of the key themes to the AHOD is celebration. We were happy to announce the latest additions to our Hall of Fame wall with five years of service to our clients, Nate Kenney (COO) and Jessica Ralston (Quality Control Manager). These two have had too many contributions to list, but both excel in helping others to believe in themselves and achieve more than they thought is possible.
The celebrating didn’t end there as we announced our inaugural Core Purpose & Core Value winners of 2019.
The Core Purpose award “To Enable Success” was presented to Lloyd Layne whom truly has an entrepreneurial spirit and is a large part of the success of Thomas and Company both internally and externally. In his role as Manager of Data Operations, he has continuously implemented systematic efficiencies, and improved processes resulting in greater bandwidth for the entire team.. He jumps at the chance to help his colleagues save time on data related tasks.
Ashley Parry was awarded “Remember Who We Are” with more than 11 years with Thomas and Company, she has a proud service history and prides herself on doing things the right way.
Jessica Ralston is focused on being better today than she was yesterday and actualizing her potential. Therefore the “Always Improving” award was presented to her as she continues to push herself and her team to be more efficient and deliver more value.
The “Own It” award went to Taylor Bennett because no project is too big, nor too small, and “that’s not my job” doesn’t exist in his vocabulary. Taylor’s vast list of accomplishments range from the large-scale deployment of new servers, to the implementation of complex storage hardware, and dynamic security initiatives.
Amanda Wulforst supports our clients and her co-workers by sharing her knowledge, approaching all communication with kindness and appreciation, and handling every situation with grace. Amanda has your back, as well as the award for “Solidarity.”
Congratulations once again to our Core Purpose & Core Value winners!
