2017 Crane Engineering Employee Core Value Awards

Author: Jake Spence | January 31, 2018 | Category: News

We're back with our latest value award winners! With more than 60 nominations, we had a very large pool of nominees to select from. 2017 was a great year for Crane Engineering and we want to recognize some of our employees for displaying the values we live by.

Crane Engineering demonstrates the following values:

  • Integrity & Respect
  • Teamwork
  • Customer Focus
  • Excellence & Innovation
  • Passion & Energy
  • Have Fun!

Each year, employees nominate fellow co-workers who they feel best exemplify the core values above. The nominees are then narrowed down until one employee is chosen for each category. It's been a Crane Engineering tradition for more than 10 years to announce the winners at the company holiday party. This year Lance Crane presented awards during the party at the Timber Rattlers stadium on January 26, 2017. The winners were as follows:
