Mayer Electric Supply recently announced the Circle of Excellence
Award Winners for 2013. Mayer is a company who takes great
pride in their associates. One of the company’s goals has always
been to recognize outstanding performers and Mayer continues
to make that a priority.
The Circle of Excellence award process began several years ago.
The goal was to find a way to reward outstanding associates and
teamwork, a core culture of Mayer. Recognizing individual associates and teams who demonstrate exceptional skills and dedication in the areas of Leadership, Community Service, Administration, Operations, Inside Sales, Outside Sales, and Team Work was
determined the best method for rewarding outstanding efforts.
The process called for associates to nominate their fellow associates and teams who they felt best demonstrated excellence in
each category. Associates who made nominations were asked to
write a paragraph explaining how the associate or team demonstrated truly outstanding behavior and supported the company’s
mission, vision, values, and goals. Leaders reviewed all of the
nominations and selected the associates and teams best qualified
for each award.
