Hagerman Presents Team Members with HAYGEE awards

INDIANAPOLIS, IN – The Hagerman Group recently presented several team members with HAYGEE awards. Award winners are decided by votes from their peers.

The awards and recipients include:

Outstanding Client Service Award
The foundation of any great organization is rooted in service. It is the nurturing force that fuels growth. The HAYGEE for Outstanding Client Service goes to the person, or group, that has been continuously dedicated to improving customer satisfaction, exceeding expectations and reacting appropriately to ensure client satisfaction. Client Focus has been a Hagerman Core Value for a long time, because without clients, there is no job to do. Customer service is not a department; it is an attitude.
  • Fishers | John Blankenbaker, Project Superintendent
  • Fort Wayne | Jeremiah Tomlin, Estimator
Team Impact Award
Great things are accomplished through the collaboration of many minds with a common vision working toward a common goal. The HAYGEE for Team Impact goes to an individual, or group, who has fostered cooperation, collaboration and open communication in their respective team environments. They build effective relationships across different departments to define and solve problems or reach agreements. They have placed group or project goals above personal goals while achieving a distinctive result.
  • Fishers | Jeff Poynter, Safety Manager

Living Our Values (LOV) Award
Hagerman’s Core Values guide their team’s actions on a daily basis. The HAYGEE for Living our Values (LOV) is given to an individual, or group, who has, by deeds or example, exemplified Hagerman’s Core Values of Safety, Teamwork, Leadership, Embrace Change, Innovation, Client Focus, Integrity, Profitability, and Excellence.
