Kate Cogdill serves. As a customer service agent, she excels at serving Intuit’s customers. Outside of work, she serves her community and our country as a member of the Army National Guard. Since joining SYKES in 2016, Kate has been serving as a constant cheerleader on-site at our Intuit Prosperity Hub in Morristown, Tennessee.
Before the COVID-19 pandemic, she organized outings to the local dog park with her teammates and fellow dog lovers. Now with the majority of the site working at home, she has shifted her focus to driving positivity and community virtually. Since Kate and her co-workers can no longer gather as a group at the dog park, she started a Facebook group where they can stay active and share their walks with each other online. She also takes extra time each day to give a special shoutout to her teammates who’ve earned top-notch customer surveys.
