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.
Zhongyin Zuo is the consummate team member and his cheerful and helpful personality makes everyone gravitate towards him. Being an Operator at Jabil’s Wuxi plant in China, he understands how working as a team helps achieve production goals. Not only is he a valued member of his team, but is also a leader that others can look up to on the production floor.
Over the next few years, Zhongyin aims to continue growing both personally and professionally. “I hope to develop my leadership skills, maintain strong relationships with coworkers and bring a positive attitude to everything I do,” he says.
Zhongyin enjoys spending time outdoors playing basketball and tennis with his friends. He also takes part in the many social activities at the site to help build strong bonds with those who are not on his production team. “My enjoyment of team sports has allowed me to appreciate how valuable each team member is in pursuit of achieving a goal,” he says.
He is also passionate about traveling throughout his county, learning about its history and cultural influences. Right now, Beijing, China’s capital, is his top priority. “I want hike across the Great Wall, see the Summer Palace and the breath-taking views over Kunmeng Lake,” he added.
