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.

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."

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.

I have customer service in my blood – really! I started at age 10 with a paper route around my neighborhood. Ever since then I have loved helping people. I spent 20 years in the restaurant business starting out in food service and ending up managing high end restaurants; 5 years in the retail business working for Williams-Sonoma and now 5 years at PRIER Products helping people with their plumbing issues.
Customer service is an essential part of almost every business. My experience has taught me that there are a few rules to follow and if you do, the outcome will be positive for your company and your customers.
It’s time for another PRIER PRODUCT GIVEAWAY! This Friday we’ll be giving away two C-108 Hot and Cold Hydrants.

As we celebrate our country’s birthday this week, there is so much to be thankful for. We must remember our country's forefathers who penned the Declaration of Independence and provided the leadership to create this fantastic country. Let’s remember the patriots who fought in the revolutionary war and those service men and women of the present and past who have devoted their lives to protecting our country’s freedoms. This is a great holiday because there is so much to be proud of.
