TriSports.com just celebrated the end of the year with a party and our annual passing along of the commuter awards, as well as crowning our 2010 Employee of the Year. The end of the year is a fun time for us. Everyone is in the holiday spirit, we have our Secret Santas scurrying around leaving gifts and it’s 80 degrees in December (sorry to rub that in if you are somewhere cold)!
Our commuter program rewards employees who ride to work with credits towards equipment for their bikes, and boy do they ride! We are on track to break 44,000 miles this year, up almost 10,000 from 2009. Awesome! We have some cool awards custom-made by CEO Seton Claggett that are passed along each year to the employee who travels the most miles and the employee who makes the most trips. Long-time Warehouse Fulfillment employee Steve Moore-Miller took home the distance trophy this year, with Tom Demerly, our master of TriSports University, winning for the most trips. These guys are amazing, as are all of the crew here who put the miles on their bikes instead of their cars each day.
Now, we have many, and I mean many, fantastic employees. Four years ago, we began selecting an Employee of the Year because, even among all the great folks who work here, there is always that one stand-out, that one person who exemplifies all of our core values, does everything with a smile, and would basically get run over by a bus for TriSports.com. OK, maybe not the bus part, but you get the idea! The cool part is that every one of the employees chosen as an Employee of the Year are still here at TriSports.com working to always give you an excellent customer experience. This year, that person is Matt Duffin. Matt has been with our company since August of 2006 , starting in Order Fulfillment, moving to Receiving and now holds a Buyer position. He tackles any job, regardless of how difficult or mundane it might seem, he is a self-starter who looks for ways to improve existing processes and works well with everyone. We are extremely proud to have Matt on our team! Congratulations, Matt!
