Corri Doyle

Corri and her cat, Gato!

Meet Corri Doyle, our HR expert while Joanie is on maternity leave.

Corri's cat, Gato

Hi there! My name is Corri Doyle!

I work with TurningPoint Human Capital Management as the Human Resources Integrator and your personal Human Resources Representative. I have my Master’s Degree and am almost done getting my Ph.D. in Human Resources. I love working in HR because it allows me to do “internal” customer service (aka taking care of our employees). You can always reach me via email, phone, or text (all of my contact information is listed below).

Here is some personal information about me: I live in Indianapolis with my significant human counterpart (named Orlando), our cat (named Gato), our 250-gallon coral reef tank, our 5.5-gallon freshwater planted tank, and my 45 house plants. I have been in school full-time since I was three years old and work two jobs. So, my free time is precious to me as it’s few and far between. During my precious free time, I love to watch foreign drama TV shows and cook. Unfortunately, that leaves me very little time to clean, so you don’t get to see any great photos of my home, plants, or pets, but one day you may get a glimpse if we have a Zoom meeting! In the meantime, If you ever need anything, feel free to drop me a text or email or give me a ring!

Populist Safety Second

Working Safely with Electrical Equipment

Working with electrical equipment such as vacuum cleaners and floor scrubbers, especially when water or moisture is present, can expose you to electrical current. Electrical currents can cause shock and injury.

These procedures should be followed while on the job:

  • Dry your hands before touching any electrical equipment.
  • Check switches, cords, and plugs of all electrical equipment before use.
  • Make sure equipment is in the Power off” position before plugging it into or unplugging from an outlet.
  • Keep your vacuum cleaner away from water, including wet floors.
  • Do not vacuum a wet floor, wet carpet, or wet mat.
  • Immediately turn off the power if you smell burning plastic or smoke, if you see sparks, or if you feel tingling or a shock. Do not use the equipment. Report the problem to our office.
  • Change the bag regularly. An over-stuffed bag will hinder suction, stress the motor, or may burst.
  • Disconnect an electrical plug by pulling on the actual plug, not the cord.
  • Do not allow the cord to become twisted or knotted.
  • Do not use more than one extension cord at a time.
  • Do not run the machine over the cord.
  • Properly wrap and store all cords when vacuuming has been completed.

We strive to keep all of our cleaning equipment in good working order. Please contact our office if you have questions, concerns, or notice a problem with your equipment.

Be safe out there!

INSPECTION INSIGHTS

From Lori Jankowski:

Leaves, leaves and more leaves! Let’s check our vacuum bags and change them out.

From Steve Amayo:

It will always be the small items you do that give our Customers that sense of cleanliness. Whether you are tucking a chair into the the desk, straightening conference room chairs, or hitting a little desk mirror. Cleaning well is found in the details.
