    Serhiy Podlevskiy Uzhgorod

    Serhiy Podlevskiy, operations project manager at Jabil Uzhgorod, brings our culture of Inspiration to youth in the Ukraine community and beyond. Recently, Serhiy was asked to organize a workshop as part of a community festival. “To make a technical workshop interesting, we needed a charismatic leader who is also well-skilled in our assigned topic of problem-solving tactics. Serhiy is a proactive leader, who is highly-dedicated to self-development, so I knew he was the right person for the job!” said Marina Kapats, human resources manager. Using his Six Sigma Lean skills, Serhiy taught risk assessment and root cause analysis to more than 100 students. He came up with a creative approach to the topic by having students create a process for cooking the best steaks using Jabil’s standard production methodologies. Through this innovative approach, he was able to teach the students about Jabil, the industry and the fun ways to apply technical skills. His superpower is his hunger for new knowledge and to continuously learn and improve. “If I have a chance to do so, I’m always happy to help and encourage people around me,” he said.

    Eric Qian Wuxi

    Quality has always been a part of Eric Qian’s career, from his education in engineering to his first job as a customer quality engineer to his current role at Jabil Wuxi. “Jabil’s culture of Integrity is what connects my passion with my work,” said Eric. “Sometimes my peers joke that I come across like the ‘integrity police’, but it’s just too important for me to remove it from everything I do!” While his work aligns to Jabil’s culture of integrity, Eric is also a responsible leader in the community. He is part of Jabil Wuxi’s Dandelion Group, the site’s community outreach committee, and regularly volunteers at the group’s organized activities. His favorite event is the movies with the blind, where employees talk through movie scenes, so the visually impaired members of the community can still enjoy major motion pictures. Born in Wuxi, Eric is especially helpful at these events because he is one of the few who can fluently speak the local language and uses his unique skill to help those in need. This also demonstrates how his trustworthy work ethic extends into the community: “It’s all about trust, and the visually impaired quickly connect with me because of our shared ability to speak the same language,” Eric said.

    Janeth Esquivel Guadalajara

    Janeth Esquivel immediately felt drawn to Jabil’s culture, from the employees to the community outreach. She joined Jabil in 2014, coming from an international professional services and audit firm where Janeth discovered her passion for tax. Given the number of customers she interacted with at the company, she was able to learn more about the external visions of many companies, which was how she was introduced to Jabil. “Right away, I felt excited about Jabil’s culture – from the collaborative teams to their commitment to the community,” Janeth said. After she joined Jabil, she quickly realized her work ethic and skills were a perfect match for our company. “Ever since my childhood, my parents have instilled the importance of honest and ethical behaviors, regardless of the situation,” she said. “For me, this value of Integrity is important for my work in finance and is crucial in treating others with respect and fairness.” As a Senior Tax Accountant at Jabil Guadalajara, Janeth stays accountable with her actions, always keeping in mind the best interests of her entire team. This dedication was clearly seen through her successful implementation of the Electronic Accounting Team, a result of new regulations issued by the Mexican Tax Authorities. Her commitment extends into the community where she participates in Jabil Cares activities, with her favorite being the holiday toy donation for underserved youth.

    Teresa Mina Singapore

    “What I like most about working here is the family-like environment where my colleagues – from managers to entry-level employees – have strong bonds and have the chance to interact with each other daily,” she said. It’s this welcoming feeling that brought her to Jabil in the first place: “Jabil’s culture of investing in its employees is what attracted me the most.” Even when there are tough projects, every day passes as a great day for Teresa due to the strong support her team has for one another. Along with contributing to the company culture by being accountable, trustworthy and putting her team’s needs above hers, Teresa also contributes to the community that helped her as a child. Teresa donates to Father Al’s Children Foundation, Inc., in the Philippines, to help with financial support for children’s education funds. She was once a recipient of a secondary school scholarship given by the organization, so supporting them now is just her simple way of showing gratitude. Without her strong educational foundation, she wouldn’t be where she is today, and she wants to help provide that opportunity to another child in need.

    Mark Terranova St. Petersburg

    With both his father and brother working in supply chain, it’s no surprise Mark Terranova followed their footsteps, having studied engineering in college, and began his career as Quality Engineer at Jabil just two years ago. Along with his genetic passion for engineering and innovation, Mark also identifies teamwork as a main factor behind his career achievements: "I work in a team of eight people, and without them I wouldn't be here right now," he says. "The friendships make work fun. I'm a big team player.” Mark is also a great communicator, which he believes is an integral aspect of being a quality engineer. He was recently recognized by a client in a customer satisfaction survey for promptly fixing the incorrect use of a component on the production line, an accomplishment he is very proud of and one that reminds him of his father. “The way my father could keep his promises to his customers was very noble,” he says. “I now understand how extremely important it is to build good relationships with them.”

    Rioch Walsh Waterford

    Rioch Walsh’s journey prior to working at Jabil’s Nypro Waterford site explains his appreciation of culture. Before getting his degree in engineering, Rioch backpacked throughout Australia for many months, working various jobs and adapting his skills to meet his travel fund needs. “It was a great adventure meeting and working with all different types of people,” he said. This preference to work with diverse people, whether it’s a difference in education, skill or ethnicity, is also what he likes best about the culture at the Waterford site. “What I enjoy most about my job is the culture and community created by the employees. Collectively, everyone is focused and driven toward achieving high-quality, innovative solutions for our customers, and it’s really a great atmosphere to work in,” Rioch said. Rioch’s ability to think creatively and quickly adapt his skillset, which are skills he learned while on his travels, has also proven useful as Value Stream Automation Lead. Rioch’s passion lies with finding innovative solutions to engineering problems. This also demonstrates how he contributes to the collaborative environment at work.

    Wanchih Lin Taipei

    Wanchih Lin always enjoyed learning by doing, using his hands to create and explore ways to make products better. After serving in the military, he attended a technical college to study mechanical design and later went on to get his master’s degree in the field. “Practical application has always been the easiest way for me to learn,” Wanchih said. “I feel lucky to be able to work in this field – work is like play to me.” And it’s clear this is the perfect field of work for Wanchih, as his career achievements include developing a small handheld wide-angle camera and applying for patents for virtual reality haptic jackets, similar to those in the novel and movie, Ready Player One. Excited for the future of virtual reality, Wanchih says, “I’m just honored to be able to work on products like these and watch designs come to life!”

    Luciene Amaral Valinhos

    Beginning her Jabil career in manufacturing, Luciene Amaral’s passion for helping others led her on a new career path, in a new field at Jabil Valinhos: human resources. As an assistant in the department, Luciene feels now she can best align her work with the motto: “Where passion meets performance.” Her interest in encouraging an open, collaborative environment at the facility in Brazil is much better suited with her work in employee relations, helping them along their career progression compared to when she was a production assistant on the shop floor. Along with her connection to Jabil’s culture of Integrity, she displays a selfless passion for helping her community. She currently volunteers with an initiative called Hands That Help, which focuses on providing a safe, nurturing environment to help people spiritually, physically and mentally. Luciene helps every month by assisting in a variety of activities from collecting and distributing food donations, renovating daycare centers, visiting the sick in hospitals and donating items for mothers and infants in need. “I am Jabil because my goal is to always achieve more and be the best person I can be from my work to my community outreach,” Luciene shared.

    “She is a role model… She has a continuous improvement mindset in everything she does here,” said Plant Lean Six Sigma Manager, Tee KiatHeng. After joining Jabil in 2015, Nur Hanis Abdrazak discovered her true calling: Lean Six Sigma, a collaborative practice that removes waste, reduces variation and improves team efficiencies. Graduating with a degree in Computer Programming and working for a rubber-product manufacturing company, she had never heard of Lean before joining Jabil in 2015. Her personal goal is to encourage and inspire her peers to fully embrace Lean in their work and help make Jabil better each and every day. Her commitment to helping others succeed is also carried into the community where she is a committee member of the Penang Government State Organization, which coordinates outreach programs in the community including the Penang Fun Run to promote a healthy lifestyle.
