Another year in the books for Kelly Industrial Supply, Inc.! Thank you to all of our loyal customers in helping us achieve another successful year. We truly appreciate it! 2018 was a bit of a whirlwind of changes - new positions put into place, new staff members, and more! We welcomed a new sales representative, Mark, in joining Wendy, Drew, & Tim out on the road for the Green Team and we also had Cady come aboard in helping with Accounts Payable for the Purple Team joining Samantha, our Office Manager, and Danielle, our Graphics & Marketing Department.
Beginning in 2017, we started adding in an Employee of the Year award. This award is presented at our annual Christmas Party for our employees. Since this is a fairly new award for our company that we are starting to do, 2017's was presented to Alex, our Customer Service Supervisor for all of his outstanding and knowledgable work. 2018 brought in Michael, Operations Supervisor as the all-around winner. The rest of our staff greatly appreciates having these two on board with the company.
For the month of November, the Blue Team had the most ballots for the Team of the Month, and as for Employee of the Month, Tyler, one of our Warehouse Personnel and Drivers, ranked the highest for the month. Congratulations to all!
Here's to another successful year in 2019!
January was one of our best months to date! Both Wendy and Alex exceeded their sales goal by almost 25%, the Warehouse was up more than 10% over last year, and Mike exceeded his goal by 275%! Our overall monthly goal was exceeded by 6% and we beat last year's goal by over 16%!!! We are continuing to make this year one of our best years to come! Good job to all the sales representatives, inside and outside, on their goals and for all the other departments for holding down the fort!
At the beginning of each month, we recognize the hard work and positive thinking of our employees individually and as departmental teams. Before Tom and Wendy Kelly hand out the awards, every staff member, including Tom & Wendy vote on a ballot form with reasons as to who they think exceeded beyond their duties and went above and beyond what they needed to do.
For the month of January, the staff voted on Michael Sharp, our Customer Service Assistant as Employee of the Month. And with the effort as a team, the Blue Team took the reign of Team of the Month. Our Blue Team is our Customer Service department with Alex Smith as the Customer Service Supervisor and Michael Sharp, Customer Service Assistant. Congratulations guys!
