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 Test Engineer at Jabil Livingston, Andy Potter is responsible for providing innovative engineering solutions and conducting functional tests on a variety of populated printed circuit board assemblies. For the past 16 years, his expertise has allowed him to connect with Jabil’s culture by ‘doing what’s right’ by providing the best cost-effective solutions for our customers.
Andy’s passion for helping others isn’t confined to the workplace. He oftentimes volunteers his time to help raise funds for a local hospice. “Giving back to your community is always rewarding and appreciated by those in need,” says Andy. “Being able to make a difference in the lives of others, regardless of how big or small, is very satisfying.”
Andy’s heart is always in the right place. He and his wife Margaret are foster caregivers who look after children ages 5 and younger until a permanent loving home is found. “Let’s just say life is never boring,” he smiles.
One day Andy aspires to travel across Canada to discover the country’s picturesque scenery. “Canada has some of the most beautiful parks in the world spanning from Fundy National Park in Halifax to Banff National Park in Alberta,” said Andy. “It would be an adventure of a lifetime!”
