Cycle leadership recognized employees that consistently demonstrated a commitment to safety at the 2019 Annual Safety Banquet hosted at Southport Hall. Employees who were incident and accident-free for the year were awarded coveted prizes for their commitment to best practices in safety.
“This year’s Safety Banquet theme focused on the importance of leadership and its impact on every aspect of business,” said Jonathan Kernion. “We believe it is critical to cultivate effective leaders who actively manage and fairly enforce safety rules on the jobsite to ensure that employee safety is never compromised.”
The Cycle team was honored to hear premiere motivational speaker Bob McCall of Inspire High Performance speak about the importance of leadership in safety. Cycle employees learned about accountability, leadership, culture, expectations, safety and best practices. They learned about cultivating a high performing team, one that works together and always challenges the status quo in order to have a positive and sustainable impact on their clients.
“Bob McCall’s inspirational talk directly aligns with Cycle’s mission for safety,” said Kernion. “When every employee leads by example, engages and listens to their fellow employees and demonstrates a commitment to safety, overall construction safety improves, and the human and business consequences of workplace incidents significantly decrease. And that is our number one priority.”
