They mentioned that each safety milestone is very special because it reinforces their commitment to Team Member Success. It also is a total team effort and requires everyone to share in the responsibility to ensure that the safety record continues.
Grigowski and Carrel also thanked the Team Members for their part in helping the company be recognized as a Best Places to Work. Input from employees on the Employee Engagement & Satisfaction Survey is a major contributor in determining which companies become recipients of this designation.
