Every month, Socket employees nominate and vote on a co-worker who best exemplifies our Core Values and Beliefs.

This month, we picked Jason Vander Veen, technical support supervisor.

He joined the Socket team earlier this year and rapidly started to take on more responsibilities. When the department needed a new leader a few months ago, Jason fit the bill.

His team members say he's "like a duck, calm and cool on the surface, but paddling like heck underneath."


Socketeers celebrated the University of Missouri's football season opener against Miami of Ohio this past Saturday in Columbia, MO.

While thousands of fans sweltered inside the 100-degree-plus stadium, our employees and friends enjoyed the nice, cool shade of our brand new tent (see what happened to our old one).

And, of course, some ice-cold beverages. And mega-big sandwiches.

We're enjoying some Shakespeare's Pizza at our Columbia office today.

A lot of pizza.

Our residential customer service & sales department hit their sales goal for the month of August (and then some). So we filled the office with everything from plain-old (but delicious) pepperoni to Hawaiian with pepperjack cheese.

We're sharing with some other folks throughout the company that deserved a pat on the back, too.
