Delivering Excellence in Every Moment
Works in the warehouse of the Marion facility of Rapids Wholesale. Packs and processes orders, also helps with general maintenance tasks.
Nominator: Paul Adams
For: Minding Their Ping
“On a Thursday, the warehouse was painfully short staffed while some of the warehouse staff were up doing inventory in St Paul, another had a day off, and the newest warehouse assoc. was a “no call/no show” leaving Logan by himself. Logan kicked it into high gear and was able to continue at full production throughout the day. I asked repeatedly if there was anything I could do to help, and each time he replied, “Nope, I got this” with the utmost confidence. These actions represent almost all of our core values, but I would like to single out “Minding Your Ping” for this nomination. Mostly because I know many people would choose to complain or pass blame when put in a situation like this, but Logan’s calm responses and compassion in stating that his coworker shouldn’t have to lose a day off because somebody chose not to come to work speaks volumes though he could say very little in the rush to beat the trucks. Very well done, sir! Way to step up!”
Words from our Vice President, Eric Schmitt:
This represents Logan’s second DEEM win, having previously secured the December 2017 recognition as well. This time of year presents a particular challenge with how busy almost every facet of the company is. This not only means lots of work but additionally lots of personnel travelling to complete work on inventory, customer visits, training, etc. Our mission for a year now has been to “Deliver Excellence in Every Moment” and our business and our customers depend on us striving for that each and every day. Logan recognized that not only did the customers who needed their equipment and supplies need things to get out but also that his teammates needed help ensuring that they were covered and could feel comfortable taking care of themselves or other critical tasks. “Teamwork makes the dream work” some wise person once said and by taking personal pride in holding down the fort, Logan ensured that all of his internal and external customers were taken care of. Here is to hoping we can all “Mind our Ping” like Logan!
For his win, Logan will be securing a gift card (having already secured a t-shirt) and entered into our Year End Employee of the Year voting. Thanks again, Logan, and all of the incredible Rapids team for the work you do every day to Deliver Excellence in Every Moment.
