Off The Clock: Olympus celebrates World Environment Day
In celebration of World Environment Day, Olympus Corp. of the Americas in Center Valley held a “Stuff-a-Truck” charity event as part of the organization’s “Social IN” initiative to get employees involved in the community. Employees were encouraged to donate gently used items from clothes to sports equipment to household items in support of five Lehigh Valley charities: The YMCA, Habitat for Humanity, Communities in Schools, Judith’s Reading Room and Via of the Lehigh Valley. Each charity parked its trucks in the Olympus parking lot to collect donations, and 41 Olympus employees volunteered to help collect donations. Pictured are Olympus employees assisting YMCA program director Heidi Lennick (middle) to collect ‘wardrobe for work’ business attire and accessories for local adults re-entering the workforce.
Mack Customer Center in Allentown hosted the technician competition of Ryder Systems Inc. of Miami, Fla., a global provider of commercial transportation, logistics and supply chain management solutions. The awards ceremony was held at ArtsQuest in Bethlehem. Of Ryder’s 5,400 U.S. and Canadian-based technicians, eight advanced through three rounds of competition, which included hands-on tests, to earn the trip to the finals. The title of Top Technician, along with a new Corvette and cash prize, was awarded to Stephen Radford of Charlotte, N.C. Pictured from left are Radford and the other finalists: Christopher Barnett, Francis Neil Smerek, Derick Hebert, Radford, Darek Mowinski, Kenneth Bilyea, Trevor Cox and David Berdovich.
