FDC Graphic Films, Inc. Recognizes Employees for Exemplifying Its Core Values

August 12th, 2020 by Emmariah Holcomb

FDC Graphic Films, Inc. recently recognized six of its employees as a “Core Values Ambassador” in the second quarter of 2020 for exemplifying one or more of the company’s five core values. FDC’s core values include having: integrity, kindness, resiliency, engagement, and a drive for success.

“It is gratifying to see how this team cares. Often, taking a minute to help or encourage our work family members gets lost in our busy go-go environment,” said Chris Stoler, FDC president.

Connie Kwiatkowski, an accounts receiving specialist, was recognized for her drive for success. According to the company, she has been instrumental in assisting other members of the accounting team that are working from home while she remains in the office. She took care of tasks that can’t be handled remotely and helped team members avoid trips to the office during the COVID-19 pandemic. She can also answer almost any FDC question for multiple departments.

Alex Ponce, a production associate, was recognized for his engagement. Ponce has carried a large portion of the Reno, Nev., production work by himself every day. When he catches up, he asks what he should do next rather than just moving on to the next easiest task. One day, according to the company, he did all of the roll-down production by himself at an average of 1,525.71 linear feet per hour. He also completed slits and material handling that same day.

Kelli Schlottmann, a Northwest/Canada West sales manager, was recognized for her kindness. Schlottmann purchased raffle tickets for everyone on the sales team from the popular online fundraiser to help raise money to provide food for those in need called the ALL IN Challenge. Each ticket was for a chance to win a fan experience in sports, music, or entertainment that she thought they’d be interested in. She personalized each one to show she was thinking of each of the sales managers and how she cares about the team.

The shipping team was recognized for their resilience and drive for success. Team members include Tiante Day, a samples and shipping clerk; Clinton Kominowski, a shipping team lead; and William Santa, a shipping associate. This team did their best despite the company being short-staffed in shipping one day. Day, Kominowski, and Santa stuck together and pushed through the day showing how much they care about customers receiving their orders on-time, complete, and error-free.

Each employee received an FDC Core Values Ambassador award certificate signed by Stoler.

The FDC Work-Life team received a total of 12 nominations for this second round of the 2020 Core Values Ambassador awards.
