Happy Oregon Trails to TFM’s Sheryl Dodge!

The TFMoran team said their final goodbyes to TFM’s Accounting Clerk, Sheryl Dodge, this past week. Sheryl is originally from Oregon, and moved to New Hampshire due to her husband’s job location. Together they have four children, her oldest daughter lives in Oregon with her two children. Her oldest son also lives in Oregon and recently got married, and two younger sons. When her youngest graduated from high school, Sheryl and her family found it was best to move back home to Oregon.

Sheryl was a wonderful attribute to the TFM team and she played an important role in the office for the five years she worked here. For her last day, TFMoran staff hosted a luncheon in her honor, in the reception area with pizza and cupcakes. The party was a western theme consisting of cowboy boot patterned tablecloths, napkins and décor accompanied by the slogan “Happy Oregon Trails Sheryl!”  Thank you for everything you have done and good luck on your new endeavors, Sheryl!

TFM Bedford Mentors 3 Interns for the Summer

TFM Bedford Mentors 3 Interns for the Summer

School’s out and interns are in here at the TFMoran Bedford office.  Jack Watton, Kelsie Gagner, and Hannah Kelsey are TFM’s 2017 summer interns.  Each of them operates in a different department under a knowledgeable and experienced supervisor/mentor. Jack attends the University of New Hampshire Durham and will obtain a BS in Civil Engineering in the spring of 2018. His work takes place in the civil engineering department working under Principal Jeff Kevan. Jack is being familiarized with AutoCAD, HydroCAD, and all aspects of civil engineering. Last year Jack interned in our surveying department, so he is familiar with the staff and expectations of TFM. Kelsie is attending Southern New Hampshire University working towards a BS in Business Administration for the spring of 2018. She interns in the marketing department under Marketing Coordinator Susan Bartley. Kelsie is designated tasks based on the events TFM attends or important upcoming happenings. She also is given the independence to come up with new and creative marketing strategies for TFMoran. Hannah is currently attending Smith College and will obtain a BS in Civil Engineering in 2021. She works under Senior Project Manager Dan Blais in the stormwater department, allowing her to visit current job sites and get a feel for the environmental engineering portion of the company. This is Hannah’s second year with TFM, as she did her independent senior project internship here for The Derryfield School.

 We acknowledge the importance of interns here at TFM, as they are teaching us as much as we are teaching them. Becoming familiarized with millennia’s and generation Y is a necessity as the minds of young people have changed, bringing new demands and ideas of what a workplace should be like. Technology is advancing at rapid speed, and it’s hard for those who have not grown up surrounded by it to adapt. With the younger generation, they are able to mold and mend to the new technologies being thrown at them every day. Having interns teaches companies what exactly future employees are looking for, and what they’re not looking for. This is the most interns we’ve had at TFM at one time, we are honored to have them here and support the local colleges and universities. Having student interns creates a form of engagement between young people and a potential career; it gives them a taste of what the “adult world” is like. Not only that, but internships are the key to building experience in an intern, and we are proud to say that their experience will come from us!

Relax, Revive, Refreshed Engineers

Relax, Revive, Refreshed Engineers

Employees can now kickback and relax while they’re at work with the newly implemented monthly chair massages TFMoran offers. Once a month, a massage therapist visits the office to give fifteen minute massages to everyone on-sight that day. Jess Gelinas, a massage therapist and owner of Deeply Kneaded Massage Therapy located at 50 Bridge St. Manchester, NH, is the masseuse who comes into TFM. The high demand of projects and work recently have engulfed our staff, however, it’s nothing a quick shoulder massage can’t fix. A portable massage chair is set up in the upstairs conference room and employees schedule a time to go visit Jess throughout the day. Though Jess just left the office, our TFMoran staff is looking forward to her next visit.

Thank you Jess for always coming in and revamping our staff so their productivity levels stay at an all time high!
