We Award Innovative Ideas! Announcing Our Newest Lightbulb Award Recipients

lightbulb award

We continue to uphold our culture of innovation by shining a light on employees who unlock innovative ideas that result in improvement and efficiencies throughout various departments. This year, Lightbulb Award recipients were Denise Brown and Lynda Mazur from our Chicago office and Valerie McClanahan from our North Vernon, Indiana, office. They created innovative process improvements that resulted in increased productivity and improved company morale.

Brown’s winning idea centered around an innovative storage rack tray that reduced room for errors with shipments and labeling while increasing productivity. This improvement has cut labor time in half while allowing employees to plan their workday ahead of time.

Employee recruiting was the focus of Mazur’s prize-winning idea. She nurtured relationships with veteran programs, developed custom eye-catching signage and even pitched the idea of dressing up as a lightbulb to promote brand awareness and expand Exegistics’ recruiting reach.

McClanahan’s successful idea centered on enhancing productivity and company morale by focusing on employee wellness.  “What better way to promote employees’ comfort and productivity than through air-conditioned shirts,” says McClanhan. Her researched indicated air-conditioned shirts would help reduce levels of stress and fatigue while enhancing productivity.

Congratulations 2019 Q1 and Q2 Lightbulb Award winners and thank you for helping us create the next best versions of our customers and ourselves!
