HOISINGTON — Superior Essex is proud to announce the latest recipient of the STAR Employee Recognition Award. Terry Riese, Cut Stand Operator, was named the third quarter 2017 STAR Employee and was treated to a dinner in his honor, a customized gift pack, a plaque, and STAR Employee parking privileges.
The Superior Essex STAR Recognition Award Program is designed to recognize STAR employees (Superior Teamwork Attitude and Results) for their outstanding teamwork, service, attitude, performance, and commitment to achieving the Plant’s goals. One award is given quarterly to an outstanding employee, and the selection is based on peer nominations.
Terry has been employed with Superior Essex since March 2008. He consistently demonstrates all of the qualities expected of a ‘STAR’ employee such as high work quality, work ethic, safe work practices, initiative, positive attitude, teamwork, volunteerism, mentoring skills, patience, and dependability. His peer nomination stated, “Terry consistently completes his tasks with a high level of energy and purpose. If his normal tasks are completed, he will seek out additional work immediately. When asked to complete any task, regardless of how undesirable, he will not question it but instead jump right in and complete the job. Terry’s attendance and dependability record is exceptional. His positive ‘can do attitude’ makes him an excellent employee and a very likeable co-worker. His co-workers enjoy his positive attitude and he keeps morale high in his department. Terry is a very active member of the safety committee and he is always watching out for his fellow co-workers. Terry is always the first to assist another employee if they are in need of help or guidance. If a STAR employee is one that places their work and attitude in front of everything else, then Terry is a STAR employee.”
Tony Szot, Plant Manager, said, “Terry is very deserving of this award and it is a great pleasure to have him as part of the team. He has a great attitude, is always ready to offer suggestions, and is an active member of the safety committee. Terry mirrors the qualities of a ‘STAR’ employee and is a model to all of the team in Hoisington.
