The service we have. and continue to receive. from both Chris and Diane. is exceptional to say the least. Chris has gone the extra mile on more occasions than I can easily name to be sure we are satisfied with his service. Diane takes our many questions in stride, and always provides exactly what we are looking for. even when we aren\'t even sure what it is. After a thorough review of the available companies and copiers. and several interviews and presentations, it was decided to go with Yuma Office Equipment, utilizing the State of Arizona Contract. Since we made the switch in copiers. we are experiencing no errors in billing and great service. Before the change, it was a monthly issue. with lost invoices and late charges. Service was slow and at times. did not handle the problem. With the new contracts. we can bill everything to a Purchasing Card which also gives us the option to split out the individual charges to multiple accounts. We are a very large organization. with many campuses. spread out from San Luis to Parker; Chris has never once indicated that the immense amount of time and travel required of him in the set up and continued handling of the accounts was any kind of issue. He is an amazing representative to work with, and we count ourselves lucky to have him handling our accounts.

Motivating employees is a simple task in theory. However, understanding what motivates each unique individual on your team and then adjusting your management style accordingly is easier said than done. Consider these four steps to motivate your employees by making them feel good about the work they do:
Let Them Know Their Work Matters
Share the context of the work they are doing—how is this task relevant to the organization, project, and/or team as a whole? Employees are motivated when they know their work is an important part of the big picture.
Recognize and Value Their Efforts
Acknowledging your employees' contributions is effective in sustaining their motivation. Recognizing goal achievements, project completions, and exceptional results make employees feel appreciated and ultimately will keep them motivated.
Assess Your Own Motivation
Employees are attuned to their leader’s involvement in the workplace. If they can sense that you are not motivated about the work you’re doing, their morale also drops. Ensure that you are as engaged and motivated as you expect your employees to be, and they will reciprocate.
