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.
Over the nine years Andrés Martínez Flores has worked at Nypro Guadalajara, he’s consistently demonstrated a willingness to go above and beyond what is expected of him. He was recently recognized globally for taking on additional responsibilities and training a new employee alongside his assigned duties.
Andrés’ caring nature and compassion for others extends throughout all aspects of his life. He gives back to his community by volunteering at the local orphanage, providing children with food, clothing, diapers and other essentials. Most importantly, he says, “I love spending time with them — it’s great to see their smiles and different personalities come out.”
Spending time with his friends and family means a lot to Andrés too, especially with his nine-month-old daughter. “I love capturing her growing curiosity through photography,” he says. “It’s a great way to remember our experiences visiting relatives or playing in the park.”
In his free time, Andrés likes to run, play soccer and read, however; his biggest passion is cooking. “I enjoy making classic Mexican dishes, such as pozole, menudo and enchiladas,” he says. “Food brings people, families together!”
Simply put, Andrés lives his life through the philosophy of, “Love life, live life, share life.”
