Aaron Blomberg and the NST Sony Electronics Team – Price Arnett, Rebecca Howe, Katie Rowland and Krystin Williamson.
At NST, our jobs never stop. We’re accessible to our clients whenever they need us, and often that is after hours. Web developer Aaron Blomberg recently showed he’s on call to make things happen when I sent him an e-mail during the holiday break when our office was closed asking for a website update to be made live. I didn’t know it at the time, but Aaron was traveling that day. While I specified the change wasn’t urgent, he still made the change later that evening. Well, technically, it was the next day since the update was made at 2:58 a.m. when he arrived home from out of town.
Our Sony Electronics team also did some work in the wee morning hours last week when they came to the office at 1:30 a.m. to monitor media coverage for the Consumer Electronics Show. The team tracked coverage from traditional media (newspapers, television, radio) and social media (blogs, Twitter, Facebook), and had recap reports to the client by 7 a.m. each day of the show – just about the time most people were starting their work days.
For 24-hour accessibility and always being ready to help NST and its clients day or night, the Tiki goes to Aaron, Price, Becky, Katie and Krystin.
At our weekly staff meeting on Monday mornings, the NST Tiki Token is given to a staff member who has done an extraordinary job the week prior or who may need a little extra support in the coming week. The Tiki Token winner from the week prior designates the new recipient of the token.
