Strata-G is Serious about Health and Wellness.
Strata-G’s Wellness Program is robust with annual challenges that focus on fitness, diet, overall health and well-being. We’ve joined the Governor’s Foundation for Health and Wellness (https://healthiertn.com), earning the 2018 Healthier Tennessee Workplace award, and the East Tennessee Wellness Round Table (https://etwellness.org), receiving Gold Status this year. These programs help us maintain good health, which, in turn, helps us enjoy work and home life more. We’ve even started a running club!
Happy 16th Birthday to Us!
We greeted friends, ate Brewster’s ice cream, and picked up Strata-G swag. We also celebrated in front of the Brewster’s ice cream truck, wishing each other many happy returns.
End-of-term Intern Presentations, a Strata-G Tradition!
Our staff gathered recently to hear our summer interns as they continued a Strata-G tradition by making an end-of-term presentation about their projects. Wow! Their accomplishments amazed us. James Lewis (left) and Joey Michaud (right) learned new skills, participated in significant Strata-G projects including advancement of important sensor technology, and managed to work their way into our collective heart. We wish them well as they return to UT to complete engineering degrees.
Strata-G Attends Leadercast
Strata-G staff recently attended the 2018 Leadercast event, the largest, one-day leadership event on the planet with more than 100,000 current visionaries and future world-changers attending each year. Here are some of their takeaways. “To justify your gift of life, give it away.” “Take care of yourself to create energy, an edge, and endurance.” “Risks not taken can be some of the biggest risks you take.” “Give myself (and those around me) permission to change.” Strata-G is proud of the qualities of our staff that drive them to want to change themselves, and the world, for the better.
Strata-G is One of Only 5 Tennessee Organizations to Receive 2017 TNCPE Achievement Award
The Tennessee Center of Performance Excellence recently awarded Strata-G the 2017 Achievement Award. On hand to accept the award were Dan Hurst, Strata-G CEO, and Kate Honebrink, Strata-G Baldrige Coordinator. This Level 3 Award marks the next milestone in the journey Strata-G envisioned several years ago when we aspired to achieve the Malcom Baldrige Quality Award and began the journey to attain it. Using the Baldrige Excellence Framework to improve our processes and results, along with rigorous TNCPE assessments, we have improved our business processes, focusing on achieving excellence through greater efficiency and effectiveness. Governor Haslam congratulated us by saying, “Organizations that pursue a TNCPE award have a special drive. Strata-G’s commitment to improvement will reach deep into our community, making a significant contribution to the state’s economy, and the wellbeing of its citizens.” Thanks to every Strata-G team member for daily commitment to integrity, service, and quality that make the journey successful.
