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 Planner for Jabil’s Taichung Plastic facility, May Lin assists in financial reporting and updating master production schedule records. One of her many strengths relied on from her colleagues is her understanding and knowledge of the English language.
May, who has been with Jabil for three years, is a vital asset to her team and recently collaborated with her site’s preparation for Jabil’s Deliver Best Practices competition - an annual, global continuous improvement challenge to recognize, support, and promote process advancements at Jabil. During the submission process, she helped with her plant’s presentation materials and translations.
Not only does May embrace the problem solving role for colleagues and customers, she hopes to use those skills and experiences to be a future leader in her department. She was recently recognized by Jabil’s Respect. Recognize. Reward. program.
“I was surprised and flattered by the honor - I couldn’t believe it was true. Everyone here is very committed and dedicated to their job,” says Lin.
Outside of work, May enjoys jogging and playing badminton in local parks. She’s fascinated by European architecture and hopes to travel extensively throughout the region, specifically the Vatican, as her friend describes as “the most beautiful place in the world.”
Jokingly, May says “fortune cookies only exist in American Chinese restaurants and that the best scenery in Taiwan is its people - come here and you’ll know what I mean.”
