In 2016, the Leadership in Values employee recognition program evolved to appreciate a greater number of team members that are living our values of Honesty, Integrity, Dependability, Creativity, and Stewardship every day. Every quarter we now recognize seven winners from each LIV team, which is defined by location or business group. In many ways, the program remains true to its roots with a commitment to recognizing team members that are nominated by their coworkers. Anyone who wears the MEYER logo can nominate their peers to be honored for displaying outstanding commitment to our corporate values and vision. In the past year since the new program was implemented, participation has been at an all-time high with more nominations than ever before.
The 2016 LIV Champion was selected out of a total of 30 quarterly LIV winners for showing exceptional commitment to our customers and our corporate values. A project manager in our commercial moving department, Chris Sookram was nominated by multiple people over the course of the year for showing Dependability, Integrity, and Creativity when adapting to new challenges in his position.
He consistently goes above and beyond for our customers. While managing a move for one of our largest Office Moving customers Chris did not hesitate to put in the extra hours and effort to ensure the client received the best service. He worked nonstop over the course of one weekend to prepare and execute the move with his team. With this project and others, Chris takes the time to provide smooth and efficient set up and install. He leads a team that continually impresses our customers and brings pride to the William B. Meyer, Inc. name. He exemplifies our commitment to providing the best experience for all of our customers. For so clearly living our values and upholding our customer service commitment, Chris was chosen as the LIV Champion of 2016. Please join us in congratulating his hard work as well as all of the LIV winners of 2016!
As we head into a new year with a whole new group of LIV Winners yet to be discovered and nominated by their peers, we look forward to recognizing our amazing team members. Our greatest asset is our people and programs like LIV allow us to showcase their hard work and commitment to customer service every day.
