Employee Testimonials on Leadership Training with Amanda King

As mentioned in last weeks Sparky’s Notes, we will be featuring testimonials from both the field and office. This week, we feature Joe Ory, a Foreman from our Sacramento Branch, and Ricky Lara, a Foreman from our Marina Branch.

Joe Ory 2“The leadership classes have been very enlightening. Dynamic communication has me constantly thinking about how to respond to different situations. Unfortunately I had to miss one of the classes so far but I am looking forward to the remainder. Thanks Amanda!”

Joe Ory,
Sacramento Foreman

Ricky Lara
“I think the leadership training has been very beneficial for me. It has made me see aspects between management and field employees I didn’t think of before. It definitely pointed me in the right direction to be a better leader.”

August “Sleep” Livestream and Digital Campaign

We all know how important it is to sleep every night. However, do you know all the different diseases you can help prevent with just sleep? How about the different types of sleeping disorders? Most people don’t realize how complex catching Z’s can be.

Sutter Health is kicking off its Sleep digital campaign on August 1st through September 6th! Every week, they will send a detailed email about the different aspects of getting your rest. In order to subscribe, check out the flyer below! Make it fast, though; sign-ups close Thursday, July 27th!

On Thursday, August 10th, Dr. Anit Patel, Sleep Medicine doctor at Sutter Health, will host a livestream about how important it is to get quality sleep. You can register for the livestream using the flyer below!
