With nearly 25 team and family members in attendance, the group enjoyed a night filled with great food and even better company.
On April 22, approximately 70 Oskaloosa team members, friends and family came together at an awards ceremony held at the Musco Technology Center on the William Penn University Campus. The evening consisted of a delicious meal and dessert catered by Sodexo, and team recognition by Clow general manager Mark Willett and chief talent strategist Tiffany Tremmel. Awards were handed out and supervisors took the opportunity to personally thank each team member for their dedicated service.
Clow also recognized the anniversaries of six sales team members on May 4 at the 2017 McWane Valve and Hydrant Group National Sales Convention at the Hermitage Hotel in Nashville, Tennessee. Highlights of the week included a hydrant hysteria competition, a team dinner at the Country Music Hall of Fame and a bowling event. The focus of the sales meeting was to update the sales team on new products and engage in growth strategies with the engineering and management teams. Having the opportunity to spend time with co-workers and friends gave the sales team a sense of comradery and energy as they move forward to promote and sell the best products in the waterworks industry.
This was the third annual awards banquet at Clow and they look forward to the opportunity at this event every year to thank team members for their commitment, service, and loyalty to the company. Without our team members, we would not be able to fulfill our mission and vision to the world: to be the world’s leading resource for water works products and premier place to work and do business, and provide the world with life sustaining water products though service and manufacturing excellence.
