Happy Birthday & Happy Retirement!

I want to share the excitement and fun that we had on behalf of John Theilburg, who after 4 years of service, has decided to retire. It was a sad moment to say farewell and there wasn't a dry eye in the house. He will be greatly missed but we have all intentions of keeping in touch. We are a close team here and enjoy doing great things for one another.

We held a nice retirement party and also celebrated John's birthday. We surprised him by inviting his sister to join in the festivities and we enjoyed meeting her. She thanked me for being an awesome manager to John, and we all shared some great and memorable time together. Even our District Leader Eddie Resto was able to join us!

Still Grieving the Loss of a Dedicated Teammate | Newbold Lookouts

In 2022, we lost a very Precious Teammate, Robin Upton, who  lost her battle to cancer. I know in my heart that she is in a great place with Our Lord. Robin started work January 31, 1911, and this lady wound up being one of the best teammates -- and friend -- to everyone. I could always rely on her being here, watching out for others and giving a helping hand every chance she had. She loved her job and always looked forward to coming to work. She would get here early every day just were she could sit and talk to me. I loved her and miss her dearly as she passed away on 9/25/22 after 11 years of service, and I know she would still would be here if she could. I am sharing a photo of her and her beloved horse, Cowboy. ~ Sue Wood

The NBS High Rollers Illustrate the Power of TEAM
Shondra Myles, Lawrence Culliver, Rose Weems, Secore Wade

I know we may have ovewhelmed you with the recognitions this week, but I must highlight thie crew when it comes to teamwork. I had over 9 pallets of supplies (452 cases) to move to buildings and I am short-staffed. That means that some of my associates are doing more then they are scheduled to do. I didn't know how I was going to do it before the rain hit, but I had to figure it out. As I was working sorting out supplies, these four teammates show up to help with no questions asked. They put on their PPE and went to work. What could have been a 2-day job turned into a 2-hour job. That's what I call teamwork! ~ Jessica Weems

Zoralys Lopez | The Caution Crew
Meet Our Site's First Employee of the Year

Zoralys Lopez is a strong and dedicated mother of two beautiful children - daughters - and is a very valued employee for the EVS Department here. Balancing being a single mother and amazing co-worker, she always takes on tasks and opportunities when presented to her and makes the best of everything.

Zoralys is a very important part of the way we operate. Her outstanding performance in Laundry and on the floor is unmatched. She takes extreme pride in the way she leaves her laundry room and makes sure each resident isn't without their clothing or linen, ensuring each piece of linen is up to her standards. She steps up when I'm out of the building and takes on the role of team lead, making sure the day runs as smoothly as possible. She gets out on the floor and helps other co-workers deal with the stress of last-minute room changes and deep cleans and ensures her "pride and joy" - laundry - is doing great.

I recently bought her an Alexa for her laundry room because her radio didn't get clear music stations that she likes, just to show my appreciation for her hard work. Ever since then, I know when I am having a bad day or just have days where work is the last place I want to be, I can walk into the laundry room and hear, "Is that my boss?" and "Today's going to be no stress, boss. We are going to have a good day"...while her music is playing in the background. 

People like Zoralys are so crucial to the success of running a successful building and we must acknowledge and reward this outstanding behavior. With the help from my District Leader Trevia Johnson, we were able to get Zoralys an Employee of the Year shirt, custom pin and name badge holder and a plaque. Please help me celebrate her big achievement - our first Employee of the Year here at our site. ~ Jason Wood
The Safety Patrol
"Teamwork is What Makes This Site So Awesome!"

I would like to recognize The Safety Patrol, lead by Angelita Jeffries, for their efforts over Christmas. This amazing team went above and beyond working in the building because of a water leak. They gave up most of Christmas Day to make sure the building was taken care of. They are still working to get the building back in shape. Three weeks into January and they are still doing room moves and cleaning the effects of the water damage. They are an amazing team. Teamwork is what makes this site so awesome! They all jump in to make sure things are done to ensure the residents have a safe and clean place to call home. ~ Melissa Williams, District Leader

The Danger Dodgers End the Year Safety Focused and Strong


The Danger Dodgers had 3-months accident's free safety meeting / dinner on 12/29/22. 
The food for this dinner was BBQ pulled pork, mashed-potatoes, green beans, buns, corn bread, and drinks were provided which were coke products. Our meeting went over our 540, M4M, Risky, etc. In this meeting we went over our high points of the year which was having No complaints on any visits in the last 5 months that I have been with the company.

We went over our job schedules for both plants and extra duties that we need to ensure get done on a daily basis moving forward to the new year, we went over changes that're happening at both plants as they are adding two new offices at each one for us to clean. 

We went over attendance and how important it is that everyone show up and on time as it was a problem this year and lunch breaks going over which make a difference in their pay everyday ex: if you clock in 7 mins late from lunch everyday that's 35 mins of your check missing each week which adds up to a big deal at the end of the year which is how I explained it to them.

We went over our open-door policy, as well as numbers and support numbers that any member can reach out to for any reason if they may need too or want too.

We went over the chemical and products we use to work smarter not harder to better time manage their day and how to be safe using them without any danger or injury to their self or others.

We went over how important it is for each shift to start each day with the best time manage in mind so that each shift at both plants can finish from start to finish the task at hand and to leave nothing behind for the other shift to pick up and do for them as ex: if day shift leave the back of the building undone then second shift has to start there to pick that up and will be late starting there shift task and won't be able to finish their task which if we keep doing that we never be able to catch back up but if we do time manage and use our 540, M4M, and our schedules we can run smoothly at both plants both shifts from start to finish 

We also did VIP papers for attendance to two of our people for this year, {Meggan and Amy} as well as employee of the month {Allen} We did the most improved employee VIP was {Joanna} We had two employees that have been with use or the company for 7 years each one of them got a VIP paper for that achievement { Meggan and Amy } I also did kind of funny one for one employee that is all ways  late for work VIP paper {Rita} that she really enjoyed as well as the rest of the crew good laugh for that one. We ended this meeting with our best regards to Shacon Teeples who couldn't make this event because she had to work at another location but we wished her the best and missed her dearly. 

We all wished 2022 good-bye and are looking forward to 2023 with the best team I could ask for! ~ Patricia Sturgeon
