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.
Huangpu Senior Production Line Manager Valiant Zeng exemplifies the definition of a leader. He’s responsible for ensuring daily production goals are achieved while maintaining the highest quality and on-time shipment, but what truly sets him apart is his commitment to the growth of his team.
Valiant has devoted himself to inspire, encourage and teach members of his team to use critical analysis to solve challenges on the manufacturing line. “Our goal is to delight our customers,” he says. “Having a team which is knowledgable and committed to continuous improvement is a win-win for the customer and the company.”
Outside of work, he’s dedicated to living a healthy and active lifestyle. “I enjoy playing badminton with my friends,” says Valiant. “Our games are usually quite competitive, but who doesn’t enjoy good competition?”
Valiant dreams of someday traveling the world. His passion for the arts, culture, and picturesque scenery has him eager to visit the Netherlands. “I want to explore the many famous art museums in Amsterdam,” says Valiant. “They feature some of the most well-known works of Van Gogh, Rembrandt and Vermeer.” He also hopes to travel to the countryside to see the historic windmills and beautiful tulip fields.
