On Feb. 27, Optio Solutions hosted its Company Update & 2018 Employee Recognition Awards Ceremony at the corporate headquarters in Petaluma, with staff from its Fargo call center participating via internal webcast.
The update looked back on the last year and forward to 2019 growth and projections while the ceremony awarded employees with recognition and prizes. Separate luncheons followed the event in Petaluma and Fargo.
Employees received an uplifting introduction by President and CEO Chris Schumacher.
“We are positioned for a good growth year,” he said. “I want to thank all of our employees for their contributions and hard work. It is people like you that make Optio a great place to work.”
Schumacher discussed several changes during the update, including a more casual-business dress code, improvements to the Tuition Reimbursement program, incentive programs for debt collectors, and suggestion boxes.
“All of these changes will continue to make Optio a great place to work,” said Schumacher, “and there will be more in 2019.”
