• Capps on a change made in response to staff request: "We have department meetings every month with management and HR to discuss ideas and issues. New equipment has been added to service. More iPhones have been provided for the sales staff. These are just a couple examples. We encourage this and recognize the people who bring up these ideas. The reward is a better environment for all and the gratitude of all."
