HOISINGTON — Superior Essex is proud to announce the latest recipient of the STAR Employee Recognition Award.  Phil Webb, Shipper, was named the fourth quarter 2018 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.   

Phil has been employed with Superior Essex since February 1980.  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.   On the nomination form, where asked “Why do you believe this employee deserves this award”, the nominators replied:  “Phil is very dedicated, and always does more than what is asked of him.  He keeps a positive attitude and I personally like working with him.”  “Phil is always upbeat, happy, and stays busy with something.  He will always help anyone at any time and make sure everyone is doing alright.   There is just no better person I can think of who deserves this award.”  “Phil is very consistent in his good attitude and dedication to exceeding the expectations of the company and our customers.  This type of consistent behavior is a shining example to others and something we should all strive to achieve.   As a company, we should hold these STARs up high and honor them.”  Several examples of meeting the STAR criteria were provided on the nomination as well.

Tony Szot, Plant Manager, said, “Phil is very deserving of this award and it is an honor to have him on our team. He has a great attitude every day, regularly offers suggestions and ideas for improvement, and is always ready to help those who need assistance. Phil reflects the qualities of a “STAR’ employee and is a model of what this award represents.”
