It was already 8:00 PM on a Tuesday night, and your employee was all but home. I called and said that I needed them back at the plant, without objection, they turned around, went back, and finished out our needs happily with a smile on their face.

I cannot speak enough regarding the Matrix Team. I don't know if you know this, but every Friday, the team creates a report and summarizes all activity that happens in each area for the week, it's so well done, and of such incredible value to us.
