Ramona, the Marketing and Web Services Manager, said, “It’s amazing just how much everything works together. We have such a culture of quality in this company. And, it is so impressive that we are less than a half percent in our error rate.”

All in all, Coller Industries strives in every way possible to get each order not only out the door quickly and efficiently, but correctly! And our low error rate proves this, not only to us but to our current and potential customers.

Aimee, the Senior Account Manager, said, “It has been a fun and exciting year getting to know our many customers and I would like to thank all of the employees, everyone from every department for their assistance and support in ensuring the satisfaction of all of our customers.”

And, part of this happiness needs to extend to our family here at Coller Industries.

Hannah, the Customer Service Manager, said it best, “What makes Coller Industries stand out, is that it feels more like family than work. We all support each other and care about each other, and I think that is such a big contribution to how well we do as a company. Obviously work is work, but it is so much easier to do when everyone you work with is a friend, and everyone cares about each other. I think that is part of what keeps us so motivated to do well.”

Our annual tradition of the Christmas party includes a giant luncheon hosted and catered at a local hotel. This year’s meal included prime rib, chicken, salmon, asparagus and other sides for a feast fit for a king. There were also delicious appetizers of crackers and spinach dip with prosciutto wrapped asparagus.

Vance, the Design Manager, said, “I enjoyed the appetizers, I was nearly full by the time the main meal was starting. And I liked that this year’s party was smaller, with only the one guest it made the party feel more about our accomplishments as a group than a meal with families.”

Playing games at the Coller Industries Incorporated Christmas partyWe also played games and gave out prizes for raffles. From a holiday word scramble to trying to remember who had played the jolly man in red, the games were a blast and the presents even better.

And, every year each employee receives a personalized gift from Coller Industries. This year was a water bottle decorated with the CI logo which was full of candy. We also got a custom embroidered jacket with the CI logo.

Employee Awards at the Coller Industries Incorporated Christmas partyThis year we also had a special treat and recognized the hard work of several employees. From perfect attendance to most efficient, each of these employees received one of our new custom plaques engraved with their specific talent and name.

Here are more thoughts from several employees about our fabulous annual Christmas party:

Crystal (Shipping Clerk) “Everything about the party this year was just so amazing and fun. I wouldn’t have changed anything. And, I really like how plaques were given out for employee appreciation.”

Mathew (Web Design / Development) “The people and environment are the best part about the annual party. It is a nice casual setting where we can enjoy one another’s company and socialize.”

Leslie (Shipping Clerk) “My favorite thing about the Christmas party was getting together with all of the employees and just having fun.”

Charles (Sample Requests) “I always enjoy the company of my coworkers as we are also friends. And it isn’t very often that we get to chat and hang out throughout a workday.”

We just want to say thank you to everyone who works for Coller Industries. We wouldn’t be where we are today if it wasn’t for our wonderful employees. And, to all of our customers, have a Merry Christmas and a happy holiday season!

Corporate Gifts are for Everyone

Not only do we have the best ideas for corporate gifts this year, but we can also put any name on it!

Scott Ginsberg has come up with a philosophy about personal identification, “Everyone should wear name tags, all the time, everywhere, forever.” And we don’t think he’s too far off, especially when it comes to corporate gifts.

But, do you need a professional to tell you how essential name tags are? And, what about translating that into corporate gifts. Yes, it is that time of year again when every business should consider what they are giving to their employees, colleagues and customers.

Providing corporate gifts is an opportunity to connect with your clients, strengthen employee ties and share your holiday cheer. Recruiting, retention and business development are three great reasons to give a gift. But don’t just give a gift because you think someone expects it. Give because you want to maintain these relationships.

Security

There are many locations where visitors may be necessary. Two of the most popular are schools and hospitals. Schools must constantly monitor who is wandering the halls of the building. Whether it’s a student, teacher or parent, many principals and school attendants are finding it necessary to make sure that everyone has ID badges. And that means visitors as well. Hospitals and other businesses are no different.

And name badges help with identifying those with whom you come in contact.

Visitor ID badges keep everyone safe. From the visitor to the president of the company, everyone needs to be identified. And, with this identification, everyone is sure to know where they belong and who else might not belong around them.

Welcoming Everyone

On the other hand of security, identification for visitors helps them to feel welcome at any facility. When people are seen wearing visitor ID badges, employees can reach out to them to make sure they are comfortable and being helped in any way they can.

Branding

Don’t forget branding! Leave your mark by adding a logo to all of the name tags in your office. Or, when creating name tags for a conference, add different company logos to each group’s name tags. Each company will appreciate this branding, and it also helps with continued recognition for each brand. And, by adding a logo to visitor ID badges, there will be no mistaking who belongs where!

Business name tags subtly encourage the wearer to maintain some professionalism while being worn. Sometimes it is easy for employees to forget where they are, but by adding a name badge or name tag, this is less likely to happen. While there is nothing wrong with having a casual working environment, a name tag will ensure a certain amount of professionalism.

So, no matter your reason for having visitor ID badges, know that they are always important.

By wearing a name tag, not only will you maintain that accountability, but you will also increase your professionalism. Name tags can also increase productivity because when someone is wearing identification, it tends to make them more responsible and aware of their actions.
