Shout Out: High Praise For The Nation's Best Outsourcing Team

"Attitude, trust, respect and character are a big part of what Jeremy brings to the team. Thanks Jeremy for all your dedication and commitment to excellence."

Good Morning Folks,

Building the strongest business means valuing its greatest resource: people. Your business--and your team--will thrive when you align your company's goals with your employees' passions. By investing in your employees and inspiring them on both a personal and professional level, you increase the chances of seeing a better return. 

Here are some of the kudos I am receiving about our incredible teammates:

Christine at Crain's Best Place To Work in Chicago

Ice Cream Social at Crain's Best Place To Work in Chicago

Sasha R, Consulting, New York

Nakeisha, Consulting, New York
"Recently Nikeisha had a very difficult reservation to fill as a Partner requested a late meeting for 25 people in the busiest office of all of our hundreds of company locations around the world. Nikeisha methodically and strategically moved meeting around, spoke to others to assist and get the Partner the result he had hoped for.  She was wonderful and was in full communication with the her client the whole time!  Kudos to Nikeisha and her leadership!"

Lucy,  Consulting, New York
"We would like to appreciate Lucy's effort for getting the locker keys issue sorted out.  A quick background, one of our clients had a new locker assigned but the keys weren't available initially, then when they were found they weren't working. As he had to put some stuff rather than carry back and forth she gave him an option to have security team lock unlock which really helped. Throughout the process she explained to him the status. She verified the keys issue and stayed on top with the concerned team to get this fixed. Thank you for owning this Lucy!"

Stephon, NYC HQ Of The World's Preeminent Daily Newspaper
"We had to set up a lunch for a huge meeting & Stephon saw that they needed help and came right over and started putting out the food, taking the cartons out the room, etc. He was such a big help. They couldn't have gotten this meeting set up in time without him. Stephon is professional, courteous and helpful on a daily basis. Thank you for all you do!"

Jackie, World's Largest Advertising Company, NYC
"She consistently goes above and beyond every day. We are very grateful to have Jackie as part of our team.  Keep working Hard Jackie. Your effort does not go unnoticed!!"

It is amazing for employees to call you with a situation and you always say “Not a problem”  You have a way with words that is so kind and very helpful. No matter what is going on, we know help is on the way and we truly appreciate all the help that you give us. Thank you Pat and all your FSO team, great job!!"

Avery - AMLAW 200 Firm, Dallas
"I  was visiting with one our wonderful Corporate attorneys this morning and complimenting her on an accent lamp that is very special and has more mechanical operations than just giving off light.  During this conversation and my paying attention to the 1”x2” post it note stuck to it, she said that it was a do not touch message for housekeeping because when they dust it the shade doesn’t get place back on it properly. Well, guess who the person that was mentioned to be the only one to be able to get the shad back on, was?  Avery. Congratulations, Avery we are proud of you for doing something that no one probably knew you were doing."

The Team At A Large, Wall Street Trader
"We have never had a more dedicated and committed team that likes each other and works as one unit. We just wanted to take a moment to let you know what an incredible job this team is doing. You should all be extremely proud of how hard they work to provide an incredible workplace experience for the our family.  Even our CEO has noticed how hard they are working."

Khadija, Global Bank, New York
"Khadija just proved to be a gem that needed the opportunity to shine. While Ikrame was on vacation, Khadija stepped up and assumed Ikrame’s role and did a great job of it. Khadija managed the reception schedule, manage the conference room assignments and resolved all scheduling issues on new and aged requests. Khadija has handled herself in a very professional manner and has earned the respect of her peers. Khadija deserves the recognition for her effort, her dedication to her position and her commitment with our client and FSO.  BRAVO Khadija!!!  Well done!!!"

"Kevin and Vanessa get major Kudos for running our operations while the entire Company attended a company event. While the rest of the firm was at a Baseball Game, Kevin and Vanessa stayed to run the entire Operations without any gap in service. This dedication speaks volumes about their work ethic and we “Thank” them for their hard work."

Shirley - Client Relations Director
"Shout out to Shirley for being so passionate about our OBT internships! She is super passionate about the program and the life changing impact it has on the interns! Shirley and her team have hired so many of the interns post each round! It’s so exciting to watch them grow within the FSO family! We have even greater pool of Interns that are ready to go live on the 2nd of August."

For employees, forging a fulfilling career is one of the most important — and often, most difficult —challenges in building a happy life. For employers, building a culture of happiness is key to cementing their brand’s success. When these interests converge, the result is a sense of belonging through shared values and an intangible, emotional belief that we are on a shared journey.

Again, thank for all that you do! The next time you see any of the folks above, please give them a “Shout Out” – for job well done.

We look forward to give YOU your own “Shout Out” coming soon to a Wednesday near you.

Have a GREAT day,

Love Life!

Putting Fun Into Work— All For A Great Cause

FSO employees come together to celebrate National Cheese Day!

Good Morning Folks,

It is said, "The way your employees feel is the way your customers will feel. And if your employees don't feel valued, neither will your customers." At FSO, we are providing great new programs and initiatives for YOU, our employees.

We had a great time celebrating National Pizza Day at HQ last week! In April we celebrated both National Beer Day and National Grilled Cheese Day! As you can see, we had quite the celebration here at FSG HQ. The café was set up with Grilled Cheese toasters and assorted CHEESE!!! We had an amazing turn out packed with directors, managers, and employees from the field. It was a blast, everyone loved it.

FSO employees "loafing" around in four easy steps: 
1) Choose slices from the Rye, Wheat or White loaves, 2) Choose a cheese 
3) Melt in the sandwich press 4) Repeat for someone less fortunate
Best of all, we turned this national celebration into an act of philanthropy! We packed a take-out bag and took to the street to give the leftover grilled cheese to the homeless of NYC.

I really enjoy these events where we can bring our staff together, it’s always a great time. Thank you Chelsea and People Solutions for your support in making FSG a great company. I personally enjoyed being in the café connecting with everyone. 

We invite the local field staff to come join us for these events any time. Be sure to check our Employee Relations Calendar for more of our upcoming events!

On behalf of the leadership team, to all of our employees reading this right now, I’d like to THANK YOU for what YOU do every day and the contribution YOU are making in helping FSO deliver to our promise, grow and be the Best Place to Work.

I look forward to seeing all of you soon in my travels.
