This month’s Get to Know ME features Staci Wand, a longtime member of our travel department. Read below about her drive to meet challenges and her awesome sense of humor! Thanks, Staci for letting us get to know you a bit better.
What’s your title and how long have you been at Motivation Excellence?
My journey began 21 years ago as a Program Coordinator in the travel department. After many years in that position, I was promoted to the Program Manager position. As the needs of the company have shifted, I am once again assisting in Program Coordination.
What does your job entail?
Managing the participant database and registration process for incentive travel programs for 50 – 1400 people. I handle many logistical components such as hotel accommodations, ground transportation and activity confirmations, as well as the preparation of on-site supplies.
What’s something special about working at Motivation Excellence that you’d like to share?
Motivation Excellence offers a flexible work environment. The company recognizes us as individuals, which allows employees to balance personal commitments, while still maintaining a high level of work.
What’s an unknown or odd talent you have?
I can do a comedic impression of Shakira…for close friends and family only. ☺
What motivates you to accomplish things in your life (work or personal)?
When I’m presented with a challenge that is identified as nearly impossible, that motivates me to figure out a way to make it happen. I’m also motivated by chocolate.
What do you enjoy doing outside work?
Playing chauffeur for my children and going for walks.
One thing that always makes you laugh is?
The movie Jumanji (the new version).
What have you done that helped you get through the pandemic?
Our family had a lot of game nights and movie nights. We also tie dyed a lot!
What is the most unusual job you’ve ever had?
I worked in a coatroom for many years if that qualifies as unusual.
This month, our theme for social media is “Devil’s in the Details.” What does attention to detail mean to you?
My current position requires a keen eye for detail, which I personally thrive on. Attention to detail requires you to not only dissect and analyze what’s in front of you, but also to be proactive and consider different outcomes based on all possible avenues of action.
