Leslie Kennon | R&S Employee of the Month | February 2022

A few minutes sitting in the office of our new Morristown 3 warehouse feels a bit like the trading floor on Wall Street – busy. People in, people out. Drivers, employees, and the occasional donut deliveries all stop there to get their questions answered.

 

The heartbeat of this office is Leslie Kennon, MT3’s Administrative Assistant. Her attention to detail, dependability, and dedication to customer satisfaction has earned her special recognition as our February Employee of the Month.

 

“I’m a bit of a perfectionist,” commented Leslie. “So it’s been fun to watch this place change from nothing to a well-working warehouse.”

 

To that point and whether she knows it or not, Leslie has been an integral part of our operations flourishing during the ongoing renovations of MT3, and that’s a testament to her humility. Her previous experience at Walmart and Amazon facilities, combined with her desire to improve operations through new ideas make Leslie a key component on the R&S staff. Despite what you can see on the outside, like her fun personality, marked by a banana tape dispenser on her desk, or her integration of walkie talkies into the day-to-day activities, Leslie’s real shining attributes are the “unseen”.

 

“What really sticks out to me about Leslie is her dependability. She goes above and beyond for every single customer,” Jamison Bailey, MT3’s Warehouse Manager said. “Truly, if she wasn’t doing such a good job at handling accounts, this place would be running half the speed.”

 

Sitting in that office, you can feel the difference that Leslie’s presence makes in the culture and workings of the warehouse. As if her hard work on the field wasn’t enough, Leslie is a stepmom to three and enjoys getting out to hike and kayak in her free time. Plus, if we ever start an R&S Fortnite team, Leslie wants us all to know that she won her first match she ever played. I gathered that she might be somewhat of a ringer in video games...

 

LESLIE, THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONSTANT HARD WORK AND DEDICATION. WE ARE HONORED TO HAVE YOU ON THE R&S TEAM.
