Remy Branch doesn't Hesitate to Take Initiative in her New Role.

Congratulations to the Golden Hard Hat Winner for January, Remy Branch!

It is a new year and time to celebrate our first  Golden Hard Hat winner for 2019, Remy Branch, Office Manager. Here is some recent feedback that exemplifies Remy’s achievement: When hired, Remy took on her current role and didn’t hesitate to take on responsibilities beyond her role that filled interim gaps in other departments.  Working closely with Sales and Accounting, she took on a sizeable project to improve the 2017 and 2018 Rebate Program which opened doors for new opportunity and improved processes. Remy is always assisting employees with a great attitude and friendly smile.  The Culture Committee has benefitted from her volunteerism and assistance with office projects and events.  The Management team has Remy to thank for her hard work on the Data Security and Effective Communication Testing. Through her hard work and support of office operations, she has made our headquarters a more functional and inviting place to work.

 Thank you, Remy and congratulations!

Hayley Bernard Takes the Initiative to Enhance Logistics at Nichiha

Congratulations to the Golden Hard Hat Winner for October, Hayley Bernard!

Our most recent Golden Hard Hat winner, Hayley Bernard, Warehouse Associate, is a member of the Logistics department based in Macon. David Girard, her manager, describes Hayley’s overachievement like this: “She is the residential shipment scheduler and she purchases Tamlyn for the company.  Over the last few months, credit concerns and stock availability have made her scheduling job very dynamic, sometimes scheduling trucks to pick up the same day as the orders are released, changing carriers on short notice, and closely monitoring order status, regularly working with production and accounting teams to ship as soon as possible.  She also works with carriers to ensure that we are using the best option to deliver our product, which is more art than science,  taking prices, truck availability, and carrier performance into consideration.  If not for her efforts, our shipping performance would not be as strong as our results show.”

Thank you Hayley and congratulations!
