The answers poured in from around the company.
The question? Solve the sudoku puzzle in the recent edition of Advance, our pharma logistics company magazine.
According to Advance editor Alvaro Sanchez, including a math problem for the contest reinforced the “Structure and Stability” theme of the issue. “Math involves a lot of structure and organization. The Sudoku puzzle itself is a mathematical structure of multiple squares. This puzzle had a high level of difficulty so I was pleasantly surprised when correct answers were received so quickly after the issue was distributed.”
Feature articles in Advance focused on subjects including “Stability is Key Ingredient for Successful Expansion” and “Discipline and Collaboration Help WDSrx Dayton, NJ Facility Achieve Two Goals Under One Roof.”
The winners submitted their correct answers within a few days after the magazine was distributed to the entire team throughout the company’s seven locations in Florida, Ohio, New Jersey and Texas. The lucky four recipients of a Dunkin’ Gift Card are:
Heidy Morel, Production Technician – Heidy started working at WDSrx in August, 2018, and is responsible for working with the filling machine. Her math skills are useful on the job since she has to keep an accurate count of how many capsules must be filled to each bag and how many bags must be filled in order to fulfill the order.
Steve Valencia, Reverse Logistics Technician – Steve began working at WDSrx in August, 2018, first as a warehouse technician and then in the Reverse Logistics department. Math is used daily as Steve’s responsibilities include measuring and documenting medications so they may be properly returned for credit or destroyed.
Sam Seelenfreund, Business Development – Sam is a fierce competitor who takes employee contests as seriously as his daily responsibilities communicating with potential clients about the benefits of working with WDSrx. On our team since June, 2016, Sam has promised lattes for everyone on his team with his winnings!
Lissy Craton, Accounting Specialist – Lissy is a very patient person and that quality helped as she worked through the sudoku puzzle quickly and efficiently. Lissy joined our team in March, 2018 and helps clients with order-to-cash processing.
Congratulations to all the winners!
