At Innovature, we respect our people and value their contributions, which is why one of our main principles is to create a work environment that is professionally challenging and personally rewarding.
We believe that employees’ contributions that are recognized transparently and in time will enable collaboration of self-recognition and encourage an open culture.
Semi-annual Outstanding (SAO) Award has been the company’s tradition and is one of the most honorable awards to recognize an employee’s great contribution to workplace success or progress at work through areas, such as productivity or quality achievement.
Traditionally, the award ceremony is held together with our Mid-year Innovation Meeting, where all employees and management sit down together, reviewing the company’s goals and progress, providing feedback on achievements, and celebrating outstanding performance throughout the first six months of the year. However, due to the current pandemic situation where all employees are working from home, both Mid-year Innovation Meeting and voting phase for SAO Award this year were organized online.
The award winner was chosen through two rounds of voting. In the first round, each employee had two votes for each of 3 voting groups to select the top 3 nominees. In the second round, the company management met and casted the votes among the top 3 to select the final winner.
We are pleased to announce that the Winner of 2021 SAO Award is Todd Tran from Accounting Team. Todd is the Team Lead of SVP Accounting Team and has been working at Innovature for over 2 years. Despite taking over the new role for just less than a year, Todd has proven himself to be a strong leader when managing his young team to overcome many challenges. His can-do attitude and commitment has made a positive difference to his team and contributed greatly to the success of the company and our culture.
Let’s sit back and hear Todd share his thoughts and feelings on winning the 2021 SAO Award in our Winner Interview.
Congratulations to Todd and let us take this as an inspiration for all Innovatur-ers to work towards the common goal of the company, to grow together and achieve new heights of success.
