wellness initiatives getting healthier, one step at a time api nsg cares about wellness This year, our organization has taken many steps to improve the health and happiness of our employees. Studies show that sitting is the new smoking, which motivated us to get out of our chairs and on our feet. Besides spending time at many of the standing work stations throughout our office, we have implemented a “walking meeting” policy, and also hosted a steps competition using pedometers. Employees are able to schedule walking meetings when a computer is not needed for the meeting. This has encouraged many employees to get some fresh air and keep moving throughout the day! We plan to continue expanding upon these successful initiatives. Each year, our parent company APi Group partners with United Way for a week of fun and giving. We work together through volunteering and fundraising activities which include speed volunteering to pack snack packs and household necessity gift bags, a 5K run, cannedstruction food drive competition, and many others! Our goal is to raise $100,000 in donations towards United Way initiatives. For those that don’t know, United Way works to break the cycle of poverty so everyone can make the most of their lives. This is done through partnerships with corporations, nonprofits, donors, and volunteers to improve communities across the country. We are proud to be a United Way Partner. This year’s theme is football, fostering a comptitive giving spirit between departments. It’s almost time for kickoff! Follow us on social media for updates!
background Nick has worked with Western States Fire Protection for
approximately 15 years. He started in the Fort Worth office before it merged into the Dallas office. He is currently in
Service Sales/Estimation but formerly worked as a Foreman/Journeyman in the field with the Local 669 Union for WSFP. why he’s awesome Nick always brings his positive energy to the team, and customers. He finds it incredibly rewarding to receive a simple “thank you” from customers and be able to pass that positive feedback onto their team. tid bitS It was hard for him to choose his favorite band, so he picked four: Coldplay, The Killers, Pink Floyd, and Aerosmith. If he could meet with anyone it would be the cool, calm, and collected Clint Eastwood. Nick grew up watching his movies and thinks he would be an interesting character to hang with. He would eat PB&J sandwiches and cereal for the rest of his life if he had to pick, as he feels almost all food groups are covered with this combo. Finally, if he had to name an autobiography, it would be called “Living My Life”. Nick says you only get one life so he has always lived his with aggressive happiness and compassion. Life happens no matter what so you have to take the good with the bad. Now that folks, is pure inspiration! Thank you Nick!
