The vision of Craft Services is to provide the best career development opportunities and employee experience for craft in our industry. One of our missions is to maximize craft engagement and the craft employee experience by providing a team of advocates dedicated solely to our craft workforce. One of the Craft Services Talent Team’s first initiatives was implementing Swinerton’s inaugural Years of Service Recognition Program dedicated solely to our craft employees.
The program was rolled out in the second and third quarters of this year, recognizing a total of 574 employees! We distributed 64 awards to those with a total of 15+ years of service with Swinerton. Overall, we awarded 1,778 items including bonus checks, gift cards, Swinerton apparel, personalized Carhartt’s, and years of service pins and stickers, with personalized hardhat plaques for those with 10+ years of service. These employees have been recognized by their entire divisions at All-Hands meetings, safety and craft training days, and company picnics. The program will continue recognizing craft employees on a quarterly basis, based on tenure intervals of 5, 10, 15, 20, and 25+ years.
We received an overwhelming positive response from craft employees and divisions alike for this recognition and are excited to continue our efforts in recognizing and rewarding our craft for their hard work and dedication to our organization. After all, without their determination and devotion to Swinerton, we wouldn’t be the successful company we are today!
