Somphane Roupsouay and Inta Phimpasouk, Production Workers
East Central Zone Employee of the Year
Champaign, IL

Though they first visited their local Express office in Champaign, IL, separately, Somphane Roupsouay and Inta Phimpasouk were actually a couple. Both had extensive experience in factory settings and were so positive during their interviews that they were a welcomed addition to the Express family. Both Somphane and Inta have been noted to have great work ethics and make an impact on any who work with them, even so much as to have been dubbed “Ma and Pa” by a supervisor at a local client. The Champaign office is proud to be a part of Somphane and Inta’s growth and success.

Central Zone Employee of the Year
Topeka, KS

Star Hummer has been serving as an Express Employment Professionals associate since 2002 and has received our Associate of the Month award several times. We’re excited to now honor Star as the Central Zone Employee of the Year for Express. She began in a variety of administrative and commercial roles, then advanced into a customer service position where she has remained for the last 10 years. Her skill set has expanded beyond general labor, shipping, and warehouse work to include phone etiquette, data entry, and more. Star is appreciated for being a hard-worker, dependable, and flexible to changing demands in her work environment.


Xian Hong Zheng, Assembler
Northeast Zone Employee of the Year
Portland, ME

Xian is a dedicated, hard-working individual who is regularly requested back by Express Employment Professional clients. Recently, Xian took a leap of faith to hold out for a job that appeared to be a great fit and passed up other opportunities until it became available. His decision proved to be successful. Once hired, he quickly took the initiative to run his own line of assemblers and was rewarded with a raise for his exemplary performance. His co-workers think very highly of him and are delighted to work closely with him. The optimism, dedication, and enthusiasm Xian brings to work each day are qualities that set him apart and make him a valuable member of the Portland, ME Express family.
