You hear people say "Safety First" all the time, and sometimes it's said in jest in situations where safety may not actually be important. To the people at PRIER, though, it's not just a rule or guideline, it's a state of mind, and as a manufacturer, it's what propels our business forward.

It was May 5th, and the Kansas City Royals were taking on the Cleveland Indians. The weather was just perfect for Friday night fireworks, it was buck night, and Eric Hosmer hit a three-run homer late in the game to put the Royals ahead by one.

Spring is a long-awaited season after a lingering winter. We can't wait to enjoy Mother Nature and all her beauty. If you are a fellow gardener like myself, you'll understand my eagerness to jump on the first gardening opportunity. I can't wait to go to the local nursery, pick out flowers, and uncover my treasure of gardening tools just waiting to get dirty.

I’m sure all of you have heard of and participated in brain storming (aka brain draining or mind dumping) events. When it’s time to come up with new ideas for something, brain storming is a common/popular approach.

As we are winding down 2016 here at PRIER, we are spending time evaluating ourselves and our performance. How and where do we need to improve? How did we do with our company objectives? Did we operate under the will of God? Did we help all associates become all they are meant to be, both inside and outside of PRIER? Did we provide satisfactory and rewarding work and careers to associates? Did we treat all relationships with respect and professionalism? Did we maintain "A" quality business practices in all areas, striving for excellence? Were we our customers' "best" supplier? Did we have fun and enjoy our work?

A role model is something we have all been in our lives. It is also something we have all relied on in our lives. Role models are not always people. They can be animals, fictitious characters, or even companies. Role models don’t have any specific age or credentials. It is a fascinating thing to think about. The thought of who your role model is can be humbling. Moreover is the thought of for whom you are a role model.
