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 Quotation Specialist at Jabil’s Penang, Malaysia site, Khu Chee Sing (CS) plays an intricate role in helping Jabil win new business to further expand its presence in markets around the world. CS has leveraged his expertise in this field at Jabil for over six years.
CS says one of the greatest strengths of the Penang campus is its diversity. “It contributes valuable perspectives, insights and ideas for business,” he adds. “It also helps build strong bonds among co-workers.” The melting-pot culture is also reflective of Malaysia as a whole. “The country is oftentimes described as ‘Asia in miniature’,” says CS. He encourages everyone to try the eclectic blend of culinary flavors and cuisines.
Outside of work, CS challenges himself and friends to games of Xiangqi, also known as Chinese chess. He enjoys the strategic nature of the game which helps increase his concentration, creativity and problem-solving skills. “It’s good exercise for our brains,” says CS. In addition, he volunteers on the Neighborhood Committee where he lives to make his community a better place for all residents.
In the future, he would like to visit the Maldives, a nation comprised of over a thousand islands in the Indian Ocean. CS is attracted to the pristine white sand beaches. crystal clear water and relaxed lifestyle. “It’s the closest country to sea level on earth,” says CS. “I want to visit it soon — it might sink and be lost forever.”
