Happy Holidays from all of us at Deco Products! At Deco Products we take pride in our dedicated and talented team. In this post we are spotlighting Alice, a recent addition to the Deco family. Join us as we meet Alice, and learn about her role with the company.
Alice, why did you join Deco Products?
I got married and moved into Decorah in July, and I was told Deco is a great company to work at – that was right, and I could not be happier by joining Deco Products!
What do you enjoy most about what you do?
To have the opportunity to assist people in HR.
Who’s been especially helpful in your start at Deco? How were they helpful?
Oh, so many people…!!
Barb made me feel very welcomed right away, introducing me to many employees during my first week.
Kelly Bond showed me the first guidelines in Deco prior to Barb training me in Deco’s HR specific tasks.
Chasity May, who kindly helped me get situated on forklift training on my very first day without Kelly.
Irene Bjergum for helping me to get needed miscellaneous items.
Annette Rooney for being supportive to my random HR questions during Barb’s leave of absence.
Nick Murphy for being always in good humor.
Katie Martin for guiding me on how to get office / other supplies.
Linda Ludwig for promptly preparing checks to pay Employee Appreciation Vendors and other needed items.
Linda Gehling, Pat Einwalter, and Connie Gordon for helping me with mail distribution and addressing random material deliveries.
Eric Smedsrud for offering help in HR, and many others at the Office and at the Plant, who have been nothing but supportive and kind!
What developments at Deco do you think are most exciting?
I find Deco very tech driven. One of the most exciting developments at Deco is the transition to ADP, where the goal is to be paperless as much as possible, and the further use of MS Teams (addition of MS Tasks, for example) and its extended use into our phone system.
Tell us a surprising or a fun fact about you.
Sometimes it is hard for me to understand jokes. I must tell that I will smile, hoping that people would not ask me for specific comments about the joke (^.^)
We Love Our Team at Deco Products!
Our team members are amazing. Alice Wahlberg is one of our shining stars. Alice had big shoes to fill, and boy did she fill them well!
