Styer Wire – Bulletin VOL 36

With all the changes the world has seen in the last year (due to Covid 19 of course), many have found themselves with more screen time. PC’s, laptops, tablets, smartphones we all have some device we seem to check each day. Technology has made things a little easier around here too!

At Styer we have Zoom calls, video chats on Microsoft Teams, instant messaging, voice to text, and on and on! We all have learned a little more about connecting in different ways. Styer now offers recruit calls over zoom, we’ve done a few annual reviews over zoom, we meet weekly as a staff here on Microsoft teams video conference.

Prior to the past year, I’ve never been on a video conference call, and now they are routine.

All this tech and ease of use, made a podcast seem like a likely next step. We can simply record the zoom call and upload to Youtube!

We’ve done a couple of these Brake Check shows already, last episode included Curt Saffle with some great ideas for our drivers to eat well, while on the road. We are looking forward to more conversations with our team, and hope to include many of you drivers in this watercooler chat.

We plan to produce a couple shows each month with a welcoming ear for any show ideas or topics you want us to discuss, let us know if you want to participate! All are welcome!

NTDAW is quickly approaching!

Styer has been busy making preperations for our upcoming driver week here in Lakeville.

Our vendor partners have stepped up once again and have been donating many tokens, gifts, and few major prizes to hand out to our driver team!

NTDAW is an important time for America to pay respect and thank all the professional truck drivers for their hard work and commitment in undertaking one of our economy’s most demanding and important jobs. This years NTDAW takes on a special significance considering the crucial role truck drivers have played during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Here at Styer, we’ll have plenty of food, fun, and prizes for our drivers all week. Our office team really enjoys this week each year too! We love to see all the drivers that can make it, enjoy sitting down and breaking some bread with you!

2021 Styer Star Award – David Lathe

David Lathe has been chosen as our 2021 Styer Star!

David Lathe has been a driver with Styer for over 15 years now. He brings years of experience and a willingness to share his knowledge.
Of recent news out at our customer Johnny Pops, David has made strong gains with the little kids at the day care next door. A situation where there was some concerns with the heavy equipment and nearby children, David has won over all the kids and made great efforts to be kind, visible, and nothing to fear.
David is a great steward for the industry (and Styer Transportation), his recent attention to those kids points directly to the community we service for Johnny pops. After 15 years with Styer, we know David as a good man, mentor, and quality professional who represents the Styer values exceptionally well.
