Good afternoon from Mercertown!  We just wanted to check in and give everyone a heads up about an important change that is coming up.

Starting November 1st, all Mercer Contractors will be issued an official Mercer I.D. badge.  This badge will be almost identical to the I.D. badges that our campus employees wear to access each building.  On and after November 1st, as contractors come to Louisville, they will need to visit with Libby Netherton in the company store.  She will be able to take your picture and assign a badge to you.  Libby is available from 8am-12:30pm, and 1:30pm-4:45pm, Monday – Friday.

Your I.D. Badge will allow you to not have to physically sign in, and get a wristband anymore.  You will just simply scan your badge in at the door and walk in!

We have made the decision to assign these badges for a couple of reasons.  First and foremost, we want to keep all Mercer Employees, Contractors, and visitors safe while on campus.  Secondly, we want our contractors to have access to other buildings, without the inconvenience of knocking on doors.  The lobbies in the Truck Ops building, and in the Recruiting/Safety building will remain unlocked during normal business hours.  With the I.D. Badge, contractors will now be able to access the Truck Pay Building, the Claims and Insurance building, and Freight Operations during normal business hours, without having to knock on doors, and wait to be allowed in.

Please remember that Libby will NOT be ready to start assigning badges until November 1st.  If you have any further questions, please contact our Contractor Relations Department.

Have a great day, and GO MERCER!!!
