FDC Graphic Films, Inc. (FDC) recognized four employees as a “Core Values Ambassador” in the fourth quarter of 2020 for exemplifying one or more of the company’s five core values.
FDC’s Core Values are believed to be the five most important values in the way the company employees live and work: integrity, kindness, resiliency, engagement, and drive for success.
“I am so very proud of each of these team members. They exemplify the character and culture we value here at FDC,” said Chris Stoler, FDC president. “Every one of them, through their actions, demonstrates why FDC is great at what we do. It is because they care, and they are committed to excellence. That care and commitment are why we recognize these individuals today.”
Shannon Althouse, production associate, was recognized for his engagement and drive for success. Althouse recommended a strategy to convert “short rolls,” which are scrap, to sellable products. This means less scrap and more value to the company.
Fernando Cocoletzi-Gomez, shipping/receiving associate, was recognized for his drive for success. According to the company, he regularly gets stocking orders shipped out not only on-time as expected, but early because he jumps into production right away and makes sure it gets done.
Nick Colpitts, inventory control coordinator, was also recognized for his drive for success. Colpitts is solution-oriented and always looking for ways to help work around challenges for the good of the business, according to the company. He is also customer-focused with his internal “customers” showing quality and ease-of-use with his deliverables.
In the company’s first double nomination, Brittany Horvath, invoice specialist, was recognized for her integrity, resiliency, and drive for success. As a prior customer care agent (CCA) for the company, she has taken on the new role of invoicing and does what she says she’s going to do in an error-free, timely manner. She knows what information a CCA needs and why, so she is pro-active by going above and beyond to communicate with them, saving them valuable time. Horvath also took in stride the assigned task of managing the invoice cabinets to prepare for the New Year and thought of new filing methods to help improve access. This is her second award in 2020.
Each employee received an FDC Core Values Ambassador award certificate from the Work-Life team signed by Mr. Stoler.
