Employee Highlight: Tyler JohnsonSara Meade
Tyler Johnson is the Quality Manager at Industrial Supply. As a reward for all his hard work, Tyler has been named a “Solution Star” for the month of February. Solution Stars are nominated by other Industrial Supply teammates and management for going above and beyond. He describes himself as optimistic, confident, and friendly–three traits that have gotten him far at the company in a short amount of time. When asked about his proudest moment at Industrial Supply, Tyler finds it a difficult question to answer, as he has many proud moments. In particular, he views the audit outcome as a great accomplishment; one that he says could not have been achieved without the help of his team. His definition of success involves achieving his goals and doing something that requires bettering oneself. It comes as no surprise that his personal motto is “When you do your best, your best gets better.” When asked about his greatest influences, Tyler names his father and grandfather as two people who have made a big impact on his life. “I run into people all the time who know my grandpa and talk about how amazing he really is,” says Tyler. “My dad has worked hard to provide for my family. Having 8 kids required him to work long hours to provide for us.” It’s easy to see that Tyler gets his kindness from his grandpa and his work ethic from his dad. When he’s not working, he enjoys spending time with his family, playing sports and learning. He balances his career and personal life by simply leaving work at work and living in the present.
