HOISINGTON — Superior Essex is proud to announce the latest recipient of the STAR Employee Recognition Award. Eric Parr, Buncher Operator, was named the second quarter 2016 STAR Employee and will be 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.
Eric has been employed with Superior Essex since August, 2013. 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, “Eric is always willing to bend over backwards for anyone and everyone. Whether coming to Jacketing to dump barrels of poly or scrap that requires a team lift to jumping over to Twinning to help with a machine or to test bobbins. I’ve seen him sweeping areas he’s not even assigned in to help keep the plant clean. He does all of this without complaint, without being asked to do it, and with a helpful hand and a huge smile. In many ways Eric exceeds the challenging requirements and expectations for receiving the STAR award. I have never worked with a person who gives as much attention to detail as he does. New employees always feel comfortable coming to Eric for answers to questions. He will take them to the problem and walk them through it step by step, making sure they understand every detail before walking away.”
Tony Szot, Plant Manager, said, “It is my pleasure to have someone who is as positive and exemplifies the meaning of teamwork as Eric working for the Hoisington plant. His positive attitude, teamwork, and commitment to assisting others has played a significant part in creating an enjoyable work environment, making Eric very deserving of this award.”
