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.

Religion and politics have long been considered taboo topics in many settings, with the workplace being one of them. However, it’s getting increasingly more difficult to keep politics out of the office. In a 2018 survey by Zety, 83 percent of respondents admitted to having political discussions at work.
Statistics also show it’s wise to avoid these conversations in the office. According to a survey from Randstad USA, more than 40 percent of workers said they felt excluded at work because of their political views. In a similar survey by Robert Half, 15 percent of respondents said their productivity suffered as a result of talking politics at work. Finally, the American Psychological Association found that 24 percent of people avoid certain co-workers because of their political views.
These numbers make it clear there is a downside to talking politics in the office. You’re more likely to change the way someone thinks about you than his or her stance on a political issue.
