Since March 16, CAPIS has transitioned to almost every employee working remotely, so we thought we’d share our home-office views and  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.

David Choate, COO, Executive Director of Global Sales | Dallas, TX

What’s the best part about the new working situation?
The 1-minute commute from kitchen to office
What do you miss about working in the office?
Meetings at the Crafty Irishman (pub) after the Close.  Does that count?
How are you keeping yourself busy during shelter-in-place? (TV shows, hobbies, projects, etc.)
Fishing!  There is a pond behind my house and it is easy to social distance while fishing.
Best tip for working remotely?
Use video conferencing.  Actually seeing another person is helpful
What would you say to those working on the COVID-19 front lines?
Thank you and stay safe!
 


Corey Ware, Equity Trading | Dallas, TX

What’s the best part about the new working situation?
The best parts about working from home are the commute, the dress code and being able to eat lunch with my family each day.
What do you miss about working in the office?
I miss the conversations and the camaraderie.  I even miss those people that are wrong all of the time?!?
How are you keeping yourself busy during shelter-in-place? (TV shows, hobbies, projects, etc.)
I am in rarified air, I have an actual completed “honey do” list.  I’m not sure how I supposed to feel right now?!  I have ridden my bike more in the last 6 weeks than I probably have in the last 6 years.  I have seen more people out and being active than I  have ever seen.
Best tip for working remotely?
Relax and enjoy the time you have with your family.  This will end.  You will NOT have to teach your child forever?!
What would you say to those working on the COVID-19 front lines?
I would just say “Thanks”.  My mom and sister are both front line workers.  I really hope we don’t forget their bravery and their sacrifices.
 


Francine Cook, Senior Business Analyst | San Antonio, TX

What’s the best part about the new working situation?
Prior to COVID-19, I worked from home, so my work space has not changed. However, my husband is now working from home and we have two kiddos, so we have a full house.  I love having them home and feel like we have much more family time. The one downfall is I am now helping with their online continuous learning from home and the various websites never seem to work when you need them.
What do you miss about working in the office?
It was a hard adjustment in the beginning. I missed having the ability to go to someone’s office to discuss a project in person.
How are you keeping yourself busy during shelter-in-place? (TV shows, hobbies, projects, etc.)
My kids and I have been taking a lot of bike rides in the neighborhood.  Now that the weather is warmer, we have also been swimming.  Lots of baking and trying new recipes on the weekends.  I also have attempted my hair cutting skills… so far so good-however, it is only a matter of time.
Best tip for working remotely?
I love working from home and find that I am much more efficient.  It may be difficult for some with various distractions, so you need to find a quiet space.
What would you say to those working on the COVID-19 front lines?
I would want them to know how much we appreciate their hard work, sacrifice and selflessness and that my family is staying home so they can get home to their families!
       


Matt Price, Applications Development Manager | Dallas, TX

What’s the best part about the new working situation?
The best part of the new working situation, is the short commute to the office 😊 and no parking fees
What do you miss about working in the office?
I miss the morning interactions with other departments, the non-critical human connections
How are you keeping yourself busy during shelter-in-place? (TV shows, hobbies, projects, etc.).
I’ve started walking the dogs more, trying to get vitamin D on sunny days
Best tip for working remotely?
Get a morning routine, to get the day started so you can focus the rest of the day
What would you say to those working on the COVID-19 front lines?
I would say, thank you so much for everything you’re doing to keep us safe
