Employee recognition reception

Last week, we honored thousands of colleagues during our annual Recognition Day by recognizing employees’ milestone service anniversaries. The efforts and commitment of our long-time employees help us continue to create inspiring workplaces for all of our employees.

This year, we recognized more than 5,700 team members who are reaching a Quest milestone anniversary—five years or more, in increments of five years. ExamOne employees made up 131 of those employees.

Celebrations were held across the company and the country, including a reception at the Lenexa laboratory for the 15-, 20- and 25-year milestone employees. ExamOne President Stuart Smith congratulated the honorees, saying, “I truly appreciate your dedication to ExamOne. Your years of service have certainly contributed to our success – in the past, present, and the future.”

Join us in sharing our appreciation to these employees for reaching significant milestones.

What’s the most rewarding part of your job or what do you love most about it?

Meaningful connection with customers and team members is the most rewarding part of my job. Understanding their needs and executing to expediently provide more than expected. Representing ExamOne as a customer-focused and “customer first” organization. Being a person our customers and team know they can count on!

What’s one unique strategy that helped you win business or serve our customers in 2018?
Communication is everything! Expedient, reliable, and consistent communication. Our customers deserve to feel confident that when they’ve brought something forth, I’m seeing it through to the fullest and with the highest priority.

In addition, I observe trends and serve as the voice of the customer internally: advocating needs, escalating issues, providing input into the development of new features, providing solutions to customer partnership development, retention and expansion to increase profitability and growth for both our customers and ExamOne.

Favorite quote or saying?

Go out on a limb, that’s where the fruit is. –Advice from a tree

In every situation, in every interaction, in every day – be a noticer of the good.

What do you like to do in your free time?
Spend time with my family; husband Bryan and three kids, ages 10, 8, and 4. We live on a lake which makes for lots of fun swimming, fishing and playing. We enjoy camping and trips to the desert for off-roading adventures!

What leadership thinks: “Shelby is an excellent communicator with ExamOne customers. She is detailed, highly organized, and fun to work with. We have several customers who come back to us and say how much they enjoy working with Shelby. That’s exactly what we need from the Account Manager position.” – Joey Grant, Senior Vice President of Commercial Sales
