January 2023 Spotlight Award: Core Values
Employee of the Month: Philip Martinez
Rusken’s Employee of the Month celebrates an employee who has gone above and beyond in exhibiting Rusken’s Core Values, which include earnest, being a savvy problem solver, and exhibiting a can-do spirit.
Regional General Manager Jim Baker and Production Manager Brandon Cornwell, from our Jackson, Tennessee facility, were eager to award Employee of the Month to Philip Martinez. As the Langston FFG Machine Helper, Philip maintains a reputation for his can-do spirit and eagerness to learn. As part of the Jackson Team for 1 year, Philip is in the process of learning how to become a machine operator and is already able to complete several set-ups independently. When asked to select this month’s Spotlight Aware recipient, Brandon Cornwell had this to say about Philip:
“He is quickly becoming a proficient and versatile member of the team. He puts in additional hours and moves around when and where needed without hesitation to help his team meet and exceed production goals. Philip arrives at work every day with a can-do spirit and is willing and able to accomplish any task set before him. His positivity and work ethic make him an invaluable member of the Rusken team and boosts the morale of others around him.”
Philip is an exemplary employee, who we are so glad to have as a part of the team. Congratulations on the recognition Philip! We would like to thank you for all that you contribute, and for always exemplifying our Core Values.
