The “Better Way” contest is an important initiative truly rooted in the culture of Venterra with the goals of providing a Better Way of Living for customers and a Better Way of Life for our team members. Gathering ideas and working together to continuously improve our operations is what makes Venterra one of the best companies in the business! The program truly embodies our core values by ensuring every Venterra team member has a voice and we are able to recognize the collective experience of the Venterra team.
Another year of Better Way is well underway and we recently announced our first quarter winners! We’re off to another big start for a year of Better Ways and we’re excited to see the program continuing with such enthusiasm from our employees. Every year we’re overwhelmed by all of the great ideas we receive. We’re looking forward to seeing them keep coming!
There are already 32 Better Way winners in 2017. Each winning suggestion earned $200 and an entry into the end of the year Regional contest – $500 to each winner – and the GRAND PRIZE of $2000 which will be announced at Kick-Off next year! All the winning submissions resulted in $6,400 is prize money given out to employees for Q1 ideas – a new record!
Congratulations to the bellow Better Way Winners for submitting one or more winning suggestions during the first quarter of the year and a special congrats to Erin Krohne from Valencia at Westchase who had five winning suggestions and took home a whopping $1,000 to kick off the year!
