The Company Has Determined

Brothers & Sisters

The company has determined an employee’s value, this determination in notably not an employee’s geographic value.

We feel that the Envoy motto is “IF THEIR NOT HAPPY, JUST BUY THEM PIZZA”. Pizza don’t pay the bills and we’re all tired of PIZZA! Continue reading
