Harrisburg, Pa. - Co-presidents Dan Schwab and Michael Schwab of D&H Distributing spent the morning of Dec. 7 lending a hand at the company's Harrisburg warehouse.
The co-presidents are undertaking this seasonal holiday visit for the second year in a row, to show support for D&H's ESOP co-owners and to assist during a time when the workload at this site typically more than doubles.
In addition to helping with shipping and packaging tasks such as sorting, "picking" and assembling goods for individual orders, the Schwabs took the time to recognize 56 employee/co-owners at the distribution center who have more than five years of tenure, respectively. About 46 percent of team members at this location have logged five or more years of service there.
"Having a staff with a long-term investment in the company definitely translates to delivering a great service model, so we like to celebrate that," said Dan Schwab about the day's visit. "Customer satisfaction stems from a team that has a passion for the job and dedication to the company. This way, our co-owners are always looking for ways to evolve our customer service and vendor partnerships."
