Here at Associated, we love to show our appreciation for and recognize our employees. Reflecting back to our post, Why Are Long Term Employees Important, we know how important it is to retain top talent and we strive to make sure our employees feel that they are truly valued.
Our Annual Sales Luncheon is an event we have held for many years. It’s a day for our sales team to enjoy the afternoon and reflect on the milestones of the prior year as well as to highlight what new and exciting things are up and coming. At this event, we also award the Sales Person of Year, as well as the winner of the Doug Harrington Award.
This year we returned to the Cooperage in Lafayette because our experience continues to be wonderful. The Board Room seems to definitely be a winner for us, so here is another big ‘thank you’ to The Cooperage!
Our Sales Person of the Year award recognizes two of the biggest contributors to overall sales: Tim Taormina from our San Jose Branch and Carly Corippo from our San Leandro Branch. Congratulations Tim & Carly! Both Tim & Carly have shown excellence and dedication in growing our customer base in 2017.
This year, the Doug Harrington Award went to Shannon Vierra, from our Central Branch. Congratulations Shannon! The Doug Harrington Award recognizes excellence in sales and is named after our former employee. Doug was respected by his fellow employees for his support and positive, professional attitude and he achieved his goals 100%+ effort while contributing something special to Associated Services as well. Shannon was recognized for this reward for her outstanding work during 2017.
Congratulations again to both Tim, Carly and Shannon! You deserve it.
