Since March 16, CAPIS has transitioned to almost every employee working remotely. As we reach a month and a half of shelter-in-place orders, we thought we’d share our home-office views and give you a glimpse into how our employees have kept busy. We’ll continue to share more “CAPIS Views” in the coming days, so be sure to check back for updates here on the website or on our LinkedIn.

Have an office with doors.

Jeannie Musick, Client Service Representative | Dallas, TX

What’s the best part about the new working situation?
Being at the farm makes this time a little more tolerable .  You step outside and you forget sometimes all the craziness going on.
What do you miss about working in the office?
My work family. Visiting and catching up. A good internet connection.
How are you keeping yourself busy during shelter-in-place? (TV shows, hobbies, projects, etc.)
At the farm we only have 2 stations, so TV is not it.  😊  There is always something to do at the farm, working in the pecan grove, persimmon trees, blackberry & blueberry bushes, grapevines, etc.
Best tip for working remotely?
Be patient.
What would you say to those working on the COVID-19 front lines?
Thank you so much for your bravery and dedication!!
                                      


Mike Dunlap, Trading Systems & App. Support | Dallas, TX

What’s the best part about the new working situation?
The best part of my new working situation is saving over 2 hours in commute time which allowed me to incorporate a morning walk into my daily routine.
What do you miss about working in the office?
I definitely miss the dialog with my coworkers.
How are you keeping yourself busy during shelter-in-place? (TV shows, hobbies, projects, etc.).
I’m keeping busy by watching tv (as most are) but also spending more time working in/on the yard.
Best tip for working remotely?
Best tip for working remotely would have to be forcing yourself to create the new routine with discipline and then it just becomes your new normal.
What would you say to those working on the COVID-19 front lines?
To the COVID-19 front line workers (which includes my wife) I say you are very appreciated and an essential part of our safety. Thank you!!!
