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.
Last August, Mark Butler was called to the scene of a life threatening emergency involving a roofing contractor at Jabil’s Nypro Healthcare facility in Clinton, Massachusetts.
“I couldn’t believe what was going on,” exclaimed Mark. “I never thought I would have to administer CPR on anyone, but I’m truly glad I had the necessary training and could implement this life-saving care.”
The contractor was having a heart attack, but Mark’s calm demeanor and quick action allowed him to take command of the situation. “I feel like I was there at the right moment for a reason and did what needed to be done,” said Mark.
Simply put, Mark is a hero.
And deservingly so is getting recognition for his heroic acts. He’s being honored as a “Hometown Hero” at the annual Red Cross breakfast in Boylston, Massachusetts. In addition, he was recognized by Nypro’s senior leadership team and CEO Courtney Ryan. “It’s been a humbling experience,” said Mark.
As a Senior Manager of Maintenance & Facilities at Nypro Healthcare, Mark is responsible for the coordination of all contractors during the facilities expansion and handling automation, building systems, and molding machine maintenance.
Mark’s 19 years at Nypro has taught him a lot, but one of his greatest satisfactions is seeing things workout for the good. “It’s the evolution of a team project - knowing where you came from to achieve the results today,” said Mark.
Outside of Nypro, Mark is happily married to his wife Paula of 29 years and two boys Greg and Sam. He enjoys going for walks, landscaping his yard and working on his Model A Ford. He finds relaxation in exploring the Caribbean Islands and the Pennsylvania Dutch area.
