The winner of Mid-City’s second Project Impact Award is Service Electrician Brian Alexander for his exceptional efforts at longtime customer Birchwood Foods.
The Project Impact Award is an award that recognizes an original idea put into practice in the field that has helped to enhance several aspects of the job. Brian recently completed a project for Birchwood that required extensive planning and included many complexities. Despite the challenges he was faced with, he surpassed expectations and completed the project so successfully, that he was nominated for this award. Brian Alexander has been a reliable and valuable member of the service department for 13 years. As the main service electrician for Birchwood Foods, Brian oversees daily maintenance as well as higher level repairs and renovations for the facility. His work ethic and dedication to this customer’s needs has helped to foster consistent repeat business with the Birchwood team.
The Project Impact Award is a way to make everyone in our company aware of the outstanding effort put forth by our team on the job site every day, Brian Dew, Mid-City president, said.
Mid-City created this awards program as a way to reward the contributions made by the field, and share those ideas and efforts with others on the job site. A major goal of the program is to take these ideas and behaviors and use them as a best practice model company-wide. All field electricians and technicians are eligible for this award, including foremen, journeymen, apprentices, and construction wiremen. Nominations can be submitted by any employee in the office and the field, and Mid-City will give out a total of four Project Impact Awards over the course of a year, with an overall winner announced in October 2017.
Mid-City judges award applications based on the following criteria: cost benefits, future implementation and customer impact, efficiency and productivity, schedule benefits, effects on company culture, complexity of idea, barriers to success, and originality. The awards committee is made up of the office and the field, with several selected at random with the intention of rotating judges on a quarterly basis.
Congratulations to Brian on being Mid-City’s second Project Impact Award Winner! If you know someone who should be nominated, contact Sarah at email@example.com to complete an application.
