The Logistics Insider
Welcome to Intelligent Logistics! This is the place where I will keep you informed about what is going on inside our company, our industry from my perspective, and other random things that may randomly pop into my head that I think are amusing.
One of our annual goals this year was to use themes each quarter to energize the team and focus on areas of improvement. Throughout the quarter, sales and operations teams will be working together on tasks such as creating customer specific SOP’s, working together on customer focused initiatives, and mapping process flow in ProMapp.
Each team task, plus unsolicited internal and external praise, earns team members entries into monthly drawings. In keeping with the flight theme, prizes will include IMAX tickets, zip line tours, and hot air balloon rides. If we meet all our quarterly goals, we will also have a company wide even at iFly (indoor sky diving) and a final drawing for a helicopter tour of Austin.
These kind of events are important to our culture, which centers around happy employees serving happy clients. It is a good reminder, as we are interviewing prospective future hires at the moment, that our best candidates are typically people who can see the good (and the humor) in almost any situation.
