PQC International Year In Review 2013


INTRODUCTION As PQC International continues to grow, we take pride in our past experiences; the good, the bad and the ugly. What makes a company strong is its ability to adapt to change, retain talent and grow its capabilities. As we reflect on the events, milestones, successes, and losses of 2013 in this Year in Review, we must remind ourselves that nothing worth having was ever achieved without some sacrifice. We must work smarter, not just harder and cherish our glory moments. We are a family of fresh talent and wise minds, who, in turn, deliver simply a melting pot of culture and quality to every project deliverable. We may not be the largest corporation, but we can safely say we are the most diverse in every aspect. May you enjoy your glimpse into the past through this publication, and be reminded of the great work you have provided, and the glorious, grandiose picture that you are a part of.

With the implementation of the new 10-day sprint and the “PQC locomotive,” we’ve established new ways to increase productivity and measure our landmark achievements. I challenge everyone this month to set new goals for themselves; goals that can only be attained through hard work and persistence.

What a way to recognize a hard year’s work! I’m thrilled. Thank you so much for recognizing my contributions this year with President’s Innovation Award. Our leadership is to be commended for encouraging associates to give their best by making such opportunities and recognition available. Our company, once again, proves itself mindful of the need to compete for excellence. This award is just one way they let us as associates share in their success. This unexpected recognition of my efforts gives

Andre A. Aviles (Triple A): First, I would like to say thank you Frank. I’m honored to receive the CEO Manifesto Award. I do believe that in order to get a job done it takes a team effort; a group of people working together with one accord and with one common goal. As the saying goes, “No One Man Is An Island.” That may not be the exact quote, but the meaning is clear. I may have received this award, but without the support and help from my associates I would have fallen somewhat short. I trust in God and I can see that PQC International is being led by the right leadership. Frank, I have to say again to you that the experience I have been exposed to in this position is appreciated. - Andres

Congratulations to all the award recipients and also to everyone who made this year successful for PQC International! Please enjoy the pictures we snapped from our holiday celebration!

I will double my efforts in serving great satisfaction in my job and in working with everyone at PQC. Thank you so much for noticing my efforts and for giving me this honor, ‘pat on the back’.- Vishal

'&#36"3: GREETINGS! The month of February was all about smiles and positivity. The Happiness Brigade was re-introduced, there were weddings, engagements, and growing families. To top it all off, PQC attended the Books for Africa charity drive and truly “gave without borders.” Outreach is very important to us at PQC, and this event kicked off our outreach program in a big way. Collecting and packing books to send to less-than-fortunate children in Africa was truly a humbling experience and provided our associates with a new sense of accomplishment and humanitarianism. I want to thank you all for standing with PQC, even during these rough times, and I want you to know that we will only continue to improve and we will become greater than we ever were before. I truly believe that, “When you give, you will receive.” Yours sincerely, Frank V. Payne

Not only did the mentoring program participants successfully finish their final projects, but there were also two weddings within the company. Amanda and I wed our significant others near the end of the month, not even two days apart. You could say that love is contagious and we caught the fever! It was certainly a month full of love and celebration and we want to share it with all of you. Yours sincerely, Frank V. Payne

The March of Dimes for babies was a wonderful experience that touched our hearts. Walking not only benefits our minds and bodies, but this event also raised awareness and funds for babies to be able to be born healthy and grow healthy. We also continued in our partnership with Norcross Cooperative Ministries, and our volunteer teams assisted at the Coop building. I want you to reflect on this month and bring positivity and love to the people in your own personal lives, just as we do here at PQC. Yours sincerely, Frank V. Payne

.": GREETINGS! June is finally upon us. Summertime is almost here and with summer comes hotter weather. At PQC, we are turning up the heat, as is appropriate for this time of year. Many new projects are coming our way, with special regard to our website. We are looking to revamp our pages to make them more clear, concise, and creative, minimizing clutter and highlighting the priorities. This past month, we had a very special national holiday. I hope each and every one of you got to spend time with the important women in your lives and I hope you showed them how much they mean to you. Without mothers, the world would have much less compassion. This month, I invite you to reflect on your blessings and be appreciative of the things you already have. Yours sincerely, Frank V. Payne
