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’s Chihuahua site, Edgar Lerma understands the value his role provides in improving processes, delivering superior customer satisfaction and driving continuous improvement. Edgar’s passion for his work is demonstrated in his various duties — coordinating test equipment maintenance and monitoring test equipment performance based on departmental metrics. In addition, he supervises test and diagnostic technicians.
Ever since Edgar began his career at Jabil two and a half years ago, he’s shown significant professional development through hard work, creative thinking and innovative problem-solving solutions. “Jabil is a company full of opportunity,” said Edgar. “I advanced from a Trainee into my current position as a Test Engineer which came with increased responsibilities and a supervisory role.”
Edgar already has his sights set on the next phase of his career. He hopes to transition into a Test Coordinator role and eventually management.
Outside of Jabil, Edgar likes to watch the latest television series and movies. He also enjoys listening to music from his favorite artists and exploring the web. Another interest of Edgar’s is his curiosity around the latest technologies on the consumer market. “I enjoy learning about the newest smartphones, wearables and Internet of Things products developed around the world,” said Edgar. “Innovation fascinates me.”
In the future, Edgar sees himself traveling throughout Europe experiencing new cultures and exploring its unique architectural buildings. “A lot of countries interest me, but I mostly want to visit Germany, Bulgaria, Sweden and Norway,” he added. “I can’t wait!”
