Are you ready for some football?


Last weekend PSG & CMS participated in a flag football tournament hosted by Holt Brothers Foundation. The Foundation supports KidsCan!, an educational and peer empathy program for kids with a parent with cancer, and Camp Kesem, a sleep-away camp for children ages 6-16 who have a parent with cancer.
 
The tournament consisted of 16 teams from many local businesses. We had a 12 person team that represented Special Projects, Service projects, Maintenance, and CMS divisions. It was a fun team building experience for a great cause.  Despite a few bumps, bruises and a lot of soreness everyone had a great time at the tournament.

Food Drive

The WeCare team from PSG Raleigh and CMS Controls organized a food drive during the annual Kick Off Party.  The food drive was to support the local charity organization, Dorcas Ministries food pantry. WeCare was able to collect enough food and household goods to
fill 3 shopping carts (some overflowing). The people  at Dorcas were very grateful and excited to see all that we had.


 
The Dorcas Food Pantry provides emergency food assistance for residents of Cary and Morrisville. Approved shoppers select items from our pantry which is set up like a grocery store. Shoppers choose canned goods, frozen and fresh food which is generously provided thanks to donations from the local community.
 
Way to go team!

A Job Well Done!



A Job Well Done!
By Tom Bergeron

Last week Tim Dyer, from our Raleigh Service Team, was recognized by Rich Frantz, Director of Product Support (Stulz) and Dan Santalucia (AES) for a job well done.  During the holidays Piedmont had been asked to commission several units at the Fidelity facility in RTP. All of the commissioning had to be completed by December 31. 

Unfortunately he ran into several obstacles and issues which delayed the commissioning of this equipment.  Tim had documented all of the deficiencies in detail and provided a daily status for each unit on his call summary and equipment start up sheets.  The level of detail that Tim provided was very beneficial to Stulz.  

Rich Frantz forwarded Tim’s documentation to all of the Stulz technicians throughout the USA. They are now using Tim’s documentation as the benchmark on how their paperwork should be completed. 

Tim’s diligence on providing detailed information for all these years has really paid off. Customers do read call summaries and sometimes the small details make the difference. Tim’s effort’s has enhanced our PSN partnership with the Stulz Corporation.

Thank you for your efforts Tim!

Greenville KickOff

Greenville 2016 KickOff
By HB Moore
 
Piedmont of Greenville enjoyed our first-ever kick-off event this weekend at Hunters' Pointe in Washington, N.C. Following a couple of hours of a world-class sporting clay course we settled in for a very nice barbeque chicken dinner.
Several members of team #1 were overheard chanting, "Winner, winner chicken dinner."
 
Following dinner we unpacked an exercise that the Greenville team has been working through for the last few weeks. At our last safety meeting everyone was given a copy of the book, "One Word that will change your life" by Gordon, Britton and Page.
The premise of the book to discover One Word that will be your guide throughout the upcoming year versus several new year's resolutions. It is a word that can impact your relational, physical, vocational, financial and emotional life.
One Word simplifies and helps to focus your life and efforts as you move through your year. (Several NFL teams have used the book to start of spring training and carry their word into the regular season.)  Instead of a New Year's Resolution that usually fade pretty quickly, one word that you keep in front of you all year can help to a transform your life.
Each person present came forward after dinner and unpacked their word for the group and shared how they think it will impact them in the year ahead. As the individual Greenville associates words began to come in prior to our event I began to focus on One Word for the eastern team.
In collaboration with representatives from the WeCare team and others, the word DELIVER was launched as the Greenville word for the year.
To deliver the right maintenance and project solutions from a sales development standpoint.
To deliver excellent customer service from our operations team To deliver word-class job site service with every interaction with our customers To deliver the financial results that will benefit everyone at every level of the organization.
