We are thrilled to pay tribute to Ashley Vickers one of our May Associate Spotlight and Edafio’s purchasing coordinator.
The comings and goings of staff are a part of every dynamic organization; therefore, it can be challenging to get to know our coworkers better as people, especially coming out of a time of social distancing. We have to be mindful that our company culture thrives on our exceptional people as much as their outstanding technical skills. As such, we are finding that our periodic interviews with associates allow us to acknowledge and celebrate the beautiful life stories, extraordinary professional accomplishments, and even the little quirks that make us uniquely beautiful human beings.
We hope you find each Edafio associate story as inspiring as we do in gathering and sharing them.

Everyone at Edafio has a story about why they joined the team. What’s yours?
I remembered working with Edafio from a client’s perspective. There was always a great sense of working together to solve a problem, strive for client satisfaction and celebrate innovation and success. Being a part of a company with a genuine one-team spirit seemed like a fantastic place to work. It turns out I wasn’t wrong.
