'Tweet', 'like', 'hashtag' and 'follow' are just a few of the words that have been redefined through the innovations of social media. Even those who are not active on these popular social media platforms have become aware of the terms by sheer magnitude. Top magazine articles drool over Justin Beiber’s latest tweets and even mainstream news sources have begun using Facebook photos for their stories.

Spreading Kindness Amidst the Chaos

By Nick Manning, President

Even though the weather and the drought here in Kansas City might tell a different story, the fall season is close!  I can tell because all my kids are back in school, and the election blabbering is in full force.

The grade school that three of my children attend is a “golden rule school." Students are taught to use the golden rule as their basis for making a difficult decision and to show respect for all people they come in contact with.  Are these kids, perfect?  Certainly not, but I greatly appreciate the teachers and administration of the school with their efforts.

Teamwork Works

By Diane Zeiler, Human Resources Assistant

The definition of teamwork is, “The process of working collaboratively with a group of people in order to achieve a goal.” A team can be any group of people including your family. I was inspired to do a blog on teamwork from watching the 2012 Olympics. The Olympics is all about teamwork, because each athlete has a job and their success depends on the effort and reliability of their teammates.

I'm Hungry

By LaTausha Taborn, Buyer

PRIER strives to be the best in all aspects including providing a healthy workplace for their employees. All PRIER employees have lunch together twice a month and the meals that are prepared are well balanced and nutritious. It’s not at all like being on a “diet”. After sampling a few dishes, I thought, “If this is healthy eating, I’m all in."

Going for the Gold

By Kevin March, Plant Foreman

After months of anticipation and training, the 2012 Olympics are upon us.  Competitors from all over the globe are ready to vie for the gold in their selected athletic venues.  Of course, there are favorites who will take home the gold.  You have names such as Phelps, Lochte, Franklin and many more that are competing, and we have come to know them as “top contenders” who always go for the gold.  When I see them on the television set, putting all that effort in for that top spot, I am reminded of PRIER.  You could compare and see such similarities that put PRIER in gold standings.
