At EPI-HAB, our team is united around a single goal: “to provide meaningful employment for individuals with epilepsy and other challenges by performing valued work for area businesses.” And while each of our employees brings a unique skill set to his or her role, they all equally represent the spirit of our organization: dedicated, passionate and acutely aware of EPI-HAB’s potential for growth.
With decades of experience in mailings, inspection/cleaning, assembly and custom packaging, storage and order fulfillment, our talented team members truly become a valuable extension of our partners’ teams.
This month, we are pleased to continue our series of blog entries and e-blasts introducing EPI-HAB’s hardworking employees to our readers, friends and partners.
December’s employee spotlight features, Charles Johnson, EPI-HAB’s custodian:
Charles, a native of Phoenix, has been responsible for maintaining the safety and cleanliness of EPI-HAB’s facility for 30 years.
Charles truly took pride in his career and was a compassionate team member, with a deep desire to support the EPI-HAB mission and values in his daily work. Charles says he was drawn to the organization and ultimately chose to work for EPI-HAB “because it was a company that helped people with disabilities such as epilepsy.”
Unfortunately, EPI-HAB was forced to say goodbye to Charles earlier this month as he will be moving with his wife to Florida. To commemorate his decades of diligent service and express the team’s gratitude, EPI-HAB recently presented Charles with a plaque at EPI-HAB’s annual Christmas celebration.
“EPI-HAB has been able to develop a very well-rounded and complementary team by effectively identifying self-starters, like Charles, over the years,” said Matt Redmann, Executive Director of EPI-HAB. “We are incredibly thankful for his contributions.”
