Celebrating our Core Values & the people who practice them!

At Weisser Distributing we hire based on CORE VALUES and holding each other accountable to the company’s standards. These values become the fabric of our culture!  The best way to hire and keep great teammates is to already have an office filled with like-minded people who share the same values. We are already there and intend to keep heading in that direction. 

This week we're highlighting one of our top Core Values, being ACCOUNTABLE!

The person chosen by their fellow employees, who exemplifies the concept of being ACCOUNTABLE is.......Lee Pekoske

There is almost no one more accountable in our company. Lee Pekoske has broad shoulders and is willing to take on the load and if there is a mistake he is always willing to admit when that was his decision. Lee is not the type of person to throw out a guarantee, but when he is committed to a task or process he will make sure he sees it through and will be the first in line to admit when or if i didn’t work out as expected.

This week we're highlighting one of our top Core Values, being a PROBLEM SOLVER!

The person chosen by their fellow employees, who exemplifies the concept of being a PROBLEM SOLVER is.......Barry Kukes

 

Since he started this fall, Barry Kukes has repeatedly shown himself to be resourceful and adaptive in his work. He’s remarkable at defining a problem and proposing it to our department. On several occasions, he’s drawn up analysis and proposals for our website spending, content best practices, AMZ ad campaigns, to bring stats and reason into our decision making. Perhaps what I appreciate most about Barry is that he never identifies a problem without offering some solution. He’s actively involved in making sure deadlines are hit, goals are met and the team gets ahead. He’s on a very large catalog project recently and though the scale and funds have changed tremendously from what originally requested of him, he has managed to move the project along despite time and priority restraints. Barry is a great example from WD of what it looks like to be a resourceful problem-solver.

At Weisser we like to provide an opportunity to our employees to learn more about programs outside of our company that we think will benefit them in some way shape or form. And who doesn't like a free lunch? This week we featured and provided info about the Dave Ramsey Debt Diet Program. It was hosted by the one and only Bob Weisser. We had such a great turn out we plan to host another lunch on the same topic.

The person chosen by their fellow employees, who exemplifies the concept of being a AUTONOMOUS is.......Lorenzo Cardona.

From his first week here, Lorenzo Cardona has been basically on his own pulling items needed for FBA Prep. After a short week of training, he jumped right in using all of the lifts, ipads, and spreadsheets. He has proven himself to be very efficient at determining the workload for the day and how to effectively pull items to keep the FBA Prep area stocked so there is little to no down time.

Since her arrival, she has brought documented processes to the PL team that has allowed the department to grow at a rapid rate. Her skills in this area were so good that we have her team handle all of the on boarding for all of our new products.

Modex Show at Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, GA

Show season is here. Many of the WD staff are travelling across the country in the coming months to learn, grow, and find new product. 

We started off the season at the Modex Show in Atlanta, GA. Here's a photo of the venue:

Four days of working through solutions to those tough manufacturing and supply chain challenges that we face every day. Our goal at Modex was to learn new strategies to exceed customer expectations and continue providing a competitive edge. Modex provided everything we needed to get the gears turning: keynote speakers, hands-on sessions, educational opportunities galore! 

We and 850 of the leading manufacturers and supply chain providers spent the week identifying best practices, brainstorming, and connecting/networking! No surprise that Modex is considered the "Greatest Supply Chain Show on Earth!" We definitely learned ways to maximize business.
