Holiday Tradition of Giving Continues

The holidays are all about traditions, whether that's family gatherings at Grandma's, turkey and stuffing, pie for dessert, or fruitcake from Aunt Eidie. At DISTek, as has been the tradition for the past 10 years, we've partnered with a local elementary school that pairs our company with a family in need to provide household supplies as well as a variety of “wish list” items to help make their holiday season a little brighter. This year, our adopted family was a mother and her five children (two of which were 3-month old twins – yes! we purchased a substantial number of diapers!).

Plugfest Recap – 2019

Norbert Schlingmann opens Plugfest by explaining ISOBUS functionalities - end goal to be seamless data communication across different machines and manufacturers of technology.

In mid-September, the Agricultural Electronics Foundation (AEF) once again hosted a fall ISOBUS Plugfest in Europe, this time in Antibes, France. Antibes is in the French Riviera along the Mediterranean coast – the views were spectacular, the food was great, and the hospitality was fantastic. The conference center facility was well-suited to host the Plugfest and even though it did not have an attached hotel, there was ample lodging within walking distance to meet the needs of the Plugfest attendees.

Today has been full of far more treats than tricks with our Annual Halloween Costume Contest followed by a Halloween potluck. Please enjoy a peek at our costumes from today!

DISTek U

DISTek U letters are awarded at course completion.

In 2018, DISTek began an internal training program called DISTek University, affectionately known as “DISTek U”. This training leverages off-the shelf training resources to develop a common foundation for DISTek’s employee owners to build their careers on. DISTek U promotes collaboration and camaraderie among all DISTekians, regardless of position or geographic location. DISTek leadership strongly encourages all employee owners to participate in these trainings – which help both the employee owner and employer. DISTek can point to numerous examples of promoting individuals to leadership positions after successful course completion and exceptional job performance.

An Evening of Service at Northeast Iowa Food Bank

The DISTek crew anxious to get started!

A month or so ago an employee reached out to me asking about information regarding arranging a group volunteer event at the Northeast Iowa Food Bank. We’ve done such volunteer events at our local food bank as a group several times in the past, but it had been awhile since we’ve been back to help out. I was excited to hear that there was interest in such an opportunity, so we quickly got the wheels turning.

A couple weeks later, a group of DISTek employees met down at the Northeast Iowa Food Bank in Waterloo, Iowa to lend a hand. After a tour of the impressively large facility and a {quick} stop in the subzero freezer, our group was split into two to best meet their current demands.

Summer Travels 2019

The Dubuque crew enjoying the evening

The DISTek Leadership Team embarked on some summer travels recently, taking it to the streets and visiting each of our primary locations throughout the Midwest to meet, greet, eat, celebrate, and have some fun. With our employee owners scattered across several states, it is important to support teamwork and collaboration. Hosting picnics and yard games seemed to be a great way to promote unity and togetherness while at the same time letting our guards down a bit and taking some much needed time out to have a good time and get to know each other a little better outside of the work place.
