G.E.M. Going the Extra Mile is an achievement given to a Peabody Team Member for exceptional contributions to the company’s success having gone above and beyond to help fellow Team Members meet and exceed work expectations. All Peabody Team Members have an opportunity to nominate another Team Member for the award. It is a monthly award.
Nominated by his fellow Peabody Team Members – Congratulations to Frank Avila, who works in our Custom Fabrication Department, on being September 2017 G.E.M. Winner!
Here are some of the comments we received on him from his fellow Team Members for G.E.M. Going the Extra Mile:
Frank embodies the true Peabody Spirit, putting the team first and doing whatever it takes to make us look great. He has been doing this for 25 years, quietly doing a great job and helping make us better each and every day.
Frank has stepped in and learned the mechanical aspects of the new machines and has given good insight making the installs run smooth. He has helped the Rotoline technician a lot. Stepping up and filling in for Tom as machine mechanic has allowed little to no delay on the more mechanical aspects to the new machines. Because of his help the machines are being installed faster – Thanks for the help!!!
I would like to take this opportunity to nominate Frank Avila. Frank has contributed an extraordinary amount of time in the intricate assembly of all the parts to build the new machines. Frank also has exhibited his amazing electrical and mechanical talents during the installation from ground zero to completion. I appreciate his enthusiastic dedication to the Peabody’s success. He defines the definition what going the extra mile means.
He is quiet but he is mighty! He is truly an exceptional mechanic who for this past month has put his abilities to excellent use by helping to build the 2 new rotational machines Peabody got. From the bottom to the very tipy top Frank has been involved in every aspect and he should be very proud of what he has accomplished. I have seen him all over both machines non-stop and full force to get these machines up and running.
He is a dedicated and hardworking man and he has always given 100% in what he does not only in this endeavor but whatever is asked of him.
