Essex recognizes STAR Employee

HOISINGTON — Superior Essex of Hoisington announced the latest recipient of the STAR Employee Recognition Award. Shawn Jonas, Maintenance Mechanic/Master Technician, was named the 3rd Quarter 2010 STAR Employee and was recently treated to a luncheon in his honor, a customized gift pack, a plaque, and STAR Employee parking privileges.

The Superior Essex STAR Recognition Award Program is designed to quarterly 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.

Jonas has worked at Superior Essex since October 1999. He consistently demonstrates all of the qualities expected of a ‘STAR’ employee such as above-average work quality, ability to exceed expectations, exemplary work ethics, and dedication. His peer nomination read, "Shawn has always been more than willing to share his knowledge and has demonstrated patience in explaining how the work is done. Every time I’ve worked with him, I have learned new ways to do the work. His work ethic is exemplary. I believe he deserves this award because of his years of dedication to doing excellent work and his willingness to help others and offer solutions."

Jonas was very honored to receive the award. He enjoys his work and the many other outstanding people he works with everyday.

Brent Rensch, plant manager, said, "It gives me great pleasure to honor Shawn with this award. I appreciate the positive attitude he shows each and every day, the outstanding quality of work he does, the leadership he provides, and the loyalty he has to this Company. When Shawn is given a project, we have the confidence that it will be done correctly and meet the deadline. He takes great pride in his work, and is very deserving to be this quarter’s STAR employee."
