Sunstone recognizes Carrie A. for going above and beyond her regular work duties to help Sunstone be the best it can be.
Recently Carrie took on the cleanup efforts of our Doc Packs in the back warehouse. Her ability to stay at it has resulted in the elimination of unnecessary packets and a well organized area. This improvement has helped CAM as well to improve efficiency when searching for packets, having all the packets located in one area is a HUGE benefit. This, along with her ongoing passion to keep safety improvements going is much appreciated. Thank you so much Carrie for all your help in these two key areas.
"It's great to have opportunities to step out of the daily routine and contribute to our company in other ways. The task of organizing the doc packets was a challenge, but I like to be able to actually see the improvement. I feel the same about safety, it takes work but it is so worth it, knowing we can make positive changes in the workplace that can benefit everyone. It gives a feeling of pride and being recognized as EOM just makes it better. Thank you Sunstone! " - Carrie
