Performance in Excellence Achieved
Last year Strata-G began a journey toward performance excellence through a state-administered program, the Tennessee Center for Performance Excellence (TNCPE), a program open to companies and non-profit organizations throughout Tennessee. Strata-G’s Quality Manager, Tammy Phillips, led the rigorous process of self-assessment and preparation of an extensive application submitted in July 2016 and two days of intense interviews by a TNCPE committee. As a result, Strata-G was the awarded the Level 2 Commitment Award. This award recognizes Strata- G’s serious commitment to and implementation of performance improvement principles. Strata-G accepted the award at the 24th Annual Excellence in Tennessee Awards Banquet on March 2 in Nashville.
