Positive Feedback

Over the past two weeks, we’ve received quite the number of positive feedback from clients and fellow team members alike. The Content Team received kudos both the other week – for coming in on Labor day to ensure the completion of the April 1st cycle – and last week, for catching up with the April 15th cycle and for fulfilling special content requests. Rom-Jaye also received a shout-out for writing a Pacquiao-Bradley pre-fight blog that received huge traction on Facebook.

Gaia and her team of night shift developers and designers received positive feedback for a client who was very pleased with their design output. Zhai, our Operations Supervisor, congratulated Elzer and Mark the other week for their work for their exceptional performance for three consecutive months. This past week, she also gave shout-outs to Edwin, Hannah, April and the QA team for making sure the On-Page reports are fulfilled as early as possible.

Our project managers had a lot of shout-outs these past couple of weeks. CJ thanked Team Grimlock for another successful link cleanup and manual penalty removal effort. RJ gave a shoutout to Marlon, Renan, Frugalidad, and Glenn for preparing proposals for his clients. Gary congratulated Randolf and Eduardo for an on-page report that impressed one of his clients. CJ congratulated Benjie and his team for the great job they’ve done on a client’s Social campaign.
