Cheers for Peers February 2021


Wes Thompson has a process improvement mind. He brings excellent ideas to the table, but additionally, he spends extra time training team members to be more engaged in process improvement. He empowers everyone to focus on the details that come before and after their tasks giving them a sense of ownership and confidence that improves our daily operations but also shows in customer service. For these reasons, we are proud to present Wes with the E-Encourage Quality and Creativity award.

Lily Plata is a natural leader that always goes the extra mile. She is organized and pays close attention to detail which often leads to 100% inventory counts, even on the busiest of days! Her team members appreciate her help and recognize her leadership, making her a recipient of the L-Lead by Example award.

Hiram Acosta was safety focused pre-pandemic, but now, he is health focused. He took initiative to install a safety barrier in the warehouse at the CVO check in point to minimize risk and exposure to COVID-19. He ensures everyone coming into the facility wears a mask and keeps the forklifts sanitized. He is truly deserving of the D-Dedicated to Safety and Integrity award in his efforts to keep the team safe.

Shablonde McIllwain makes the impossible possible. She shares her knowledge with patience, provides helpful insight, and resolves problems in a way that improves team performance. She sets an example every day for the team to have a patient, and helpful, positive attitude. The team is better every day because Shablonde is there to L-Lead by Example.
