Fun in the Sun with Coller Industries

Summer is always a wonderful time here at Coller Industries!

playing at the park with coller industries at the summer bbq and partyWe’re busy getting out orders and making sure we stay on task so that our customers get what they ordered. But, we also know how to have fun! Every year, Coller Industries throws a Summer BBQ Bash for the employees. And every year it seems just to get better.

The party is held at Germania Park (a local park here in Utah) every year. It’s a great place with plenty of space for all the employees to come and enjoy the food and company. There is always fun for all ages, and the employees were encouraged to bring their families.

This year included a bounce house for the kids and water guns for anyone who wanted to play. We also had fantastic food provided by Joe Morley’s BBQ. The spread they brought was fabulous and fed everyone till they couldn’t eat anymore.

As employees, we would like to give a special thank you to Coller Industries and especially the Coller family for providing such an enjoyable activity for their employees.

And here’s how we do that:

Mathew, Web Design and Development, said, “Being with family and friends was the best part. I love being with people that I can socialize with and be comfortable around.”

Lydia, Customer Service, said, “The food was my favorite part because it was all really good and there was nothing I didn’t enjoy.”

Charles, Sample Requests, said, “The ribs were delicious!” He also said, “I think we have an exceptional staff. I work for a very special company who really cares about its employees. And the result is that the employees have developed long lasting relationships.”

Amanda, Solutions Manager, said, “It was really HOT! But, my favorite part would have to be the BBQ. Coller Industries always tries out new and exciting BBQ places every year.”

Merry Christmas from Our Desk To Yours!

Now, don’t get us wrong. We care about our customers too. And part of that caring means that we are always giving back to our clients and our local community. But, it also means that we are regularly returning benefits to our employees and trying to make work as fun (and productive) as possible.

So, every year Coller Industries invites all the staff and their families to an annual Christmas party. This event includes lunch, games, presents and wonderful conversations! And this year, we had a special treat of local juggler Marcus Wilson.

Marcus, Funny Man Who Does Trickscoller industries incorporated annual employee christmas party with fun prizes and a juggler
(Marcus found out long ago) that as long as he was on stage people seemed to enjoy his obnoxious antics. In high school, while working at a restaurant, he learned to juggle with rolls and oranges and fell in love with useless tricks and odd skills. At the age of 22, armed with a handful of these tricks and a desire to entertain, he began doing shows. About five years later, he began performing in comedy clubs. Since then, he has been making his living performing.

As per tradition, the Red Lion Hotel in Salt Lake City hosted the Christmas party. This has been a favorite venue for our annual party for many years. The hotel had an excellent buffet of food for lunch including prime rib and salmon for the adults and macaroni and cheese with chicken fingers for the youngsters. And don’t forget the desserts: cheesecake, chocolate cake and pumpkin pie were all there!

Because, well, we just love name tags! This year all the adults received mugs with our logo on them and a name tag in the shape of either a bell or a tree ornament. Each mug had a handful of candy included. And all the kids who were there received a present chosen just for them.

As employees, we would like to give a special thank you to Coller Industries.

And especially the Coller family and our office manager, Eboni, for providing such an enjoyable activity for their employees. And here’s how we say that thank you!

Danielle (Customer Service): “I’ve never worked for a company that has had a party before. So, this year was great, and I really enjoyed it!”

Ivan (Machine Operator): “I got to spend the time with co-worker and family. It was one of the best parties I’ve ever been to.”

Kylie (Shipping Clerk): “It was different from previous years, and I really liked that we didn’t do the same thing as before.”

Ramona (Marketing Manager): “The people we work with are such a great group, and it was fun to spend time together outside of work.”

Employee Appreciation Summer BBQ

Summer BBQ fun in the sun with Coller Industries!

We care about all of our customers. And part of that caring means that we give back to our local community and to all of our customers. It also means that we are constantly returning benefits to the employees and making work fun.

So, every year Coller Industries throws a summer BBQ bash that includes lunch, games and wonderful conversations!

People are still talking about how wonderful the catering was this year! Hats off to Meier’s BBQ & Catering for our fabulous meal which included: fresh fruit (melons, grapes, kiwi, strawberries and pineapple), macaroni shrimp salad, potato salad, baked beans, orange glazed rolls, brownies and not to forget the boneless ribs and barbecue chicken!

We had a bounce house for the kids. Another treat this year was goody bags for all of the kids that came. There was a whistle, a bottle of scented bubbles, a beaded necklace, a light-up yo-yo, and some candy. Most of the kids were blowing bubbles and playing with their new toys.

As employees, we would like to give a special thank you to Coller Industries and especially the Coller family for providing such a wonderful activity for their employees. And here’s how we say that thank you!

Joey (Customer Service): I think it’s awesome the company does things like this. I want (the Coller’s) to know I do appreciate what they do for us. It was a good time.

Audra (Purchasing Agent): I usually go every year! (It’s always) good food, good people and fun for the kids.

Rod (Programmer): I went this year to enjoy good food with friends and co-workers. I enjoy their company outside of work. It is nice to meet with them and their families in a casual setting. It always nice to talk with the Coller’s about other things besides work. I saw the children having a lot of fun with the bounce house and the gift bags they were given.

Slim (Quality Control): There was a much larger turn out this year. We had lots of fun. There were more people than I have seen come to any of the summer parties in the past. I always enjoy them, so I always go. And, I almost always bring my guitar!

Employees Appreciated

Our fantastic customer service girls eating lunch.Here at Name Tag, Inc., we pride ourselves on our quality, because we want our customers to be satisfied. Not only have we set a new record for packages going out this month, but we’ve also managed to keep our error rate extremely low (while adjusting to a new building.) Since we’ve had only five incorrect packages go out to customers over the past month, the owners of our company threw us an employee appreciation lunch to show their gratitude.

We carpooled out to Golden Corral last Friday for buffet fare. Some ambitious employees loaded up on several plates of food. You know what they say, good eaters make good (and happy) workers.

We there for a little more than an hour, which was quite enough time for us to feel appreciated. Free lunch is always something to look forward to.

Come take advantage of our excellent service. We’re eager to prove ourselves again so we can earn another lunch!
