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.
Situated outside of Naples in southern Italy, Jabil’s Marcianise site is strategically located to help customers bring their products to market in Europe. As a New Product Introduction Project Supervisor, Luigi Sampogna helps finalize products before the mass production stage. “Our mission is to take great care of our customers in everything that we do,” said Luigi. “The amount of heart and passion our employees dedicate towards making this happen is extraordinary.” Luigi’s been a part of the Marcianise team for seven years.
Ever since his childhood, Luigi has enjoyed the art of magic. He’s spent years crafting the art and oftentimes performs magic shows for children and adults in his spare time. “Seeing the smiles on the children’s faces makes it all worthwhile,” says Luigi. His connection with children is evident through his volunteerism in the local community as he frequently lends his time to help kids in need. Luigi understands the importance of making his community a better place, a key attribute of Jabil’s culture.
Luigi connects with Italy’s rich musical history through his passion and love for classical music and has led him to play the piano and pipe organ. “Playing a musical instrument brings me joy and happiness,” said Luigi. “Music is a great escape from daily life.”
In the future, he hopes to visit the Far East to experience the cultural traditions and explore historic architectural sites in China and Japan. Luigi also yearns to visit the United States of America to see the famous tourist attractions in New York City and Washington, DC.
