The foundation of Jabil’s Respect. Recognize. Reward. program is built on a respectful work environment where everyone is empowered to contribute to the success of the company. The program’s goal is to discover, highlight and share employees’ superior performance and their commitment to helping others.
Employee recognition has always been an integral part of Jabil’s culture and, following our belief in empowerment, each site designed its local recognition program to fit its unique culture. When the Respect. Recognize. Reward. program was developed in 2010, it was critical that sites continue to run its local programs while at the same time, giving them the ability to submit exceptional employees for global recognition. This structure has resulted in hundreds of Jabil employees, from all departments, locations and functions, to be recognized and celebrated each quarter. Employees’ actions and results vary, but their contributions all support Jabil’s Guiding Principles.
As a Materials Supervisor at Jabil’s Guadalajara site, Abraham Pulido is responsible for overseeing planning and purchasing operations. With over four years of experience at Jabil, he has established himself as a widely respected and admired member of the team.
For Abraham, there is nothing more rewarding than having his hard work acknowledged. “I was so excited to learn that I had been recognized,” says Abraham. “The first thing that came to my mind was - I must tell my wife!”
Him and his wife share the same adventurous spirit. “We both love the great outdoors,” says Abraham. “We are happiest when we are hiking up a mountain, or mountain biking through the forest.”
One of Abraham’s dreams is to travel to Ushuaia, Argentina. “As the southernmost city on earth, it is often referred to as ‘the end of the world’,” explains Abraham. “I hear it’s a fascinating and beautiful place, with a mixture of mountains, forests and the ocean.”
Abraham feels that travel is a hugely valuable experience. “The more you discover about other cultures, the more open-minded you become,” he explains. “However, it’s important to appreciate the beauty of your own country, too.”
Whenever possible, Abraham looks for ways that he can give back to the community. He often volunteers with vulnerable populations such as children and the elderly. “It’s important to help those in need,” says Abraham. “If everybody does their part, we can work together and support each other to build a better community."
