The Mid-Atlantic Division's Employee Day celebrates employees and brings families together, all while promoting the importance of safety.
Employee Day: Promotes Safety and Family Values
Bounce houses, giveaway prizes, interactive games, catered food, quarry tours and free flu shots. These activities were a hit at the Mid-Atlantic Division’s first annual Employee Day, held in October 2013 at the Pomona Quarry in Greensboro, N.C. This event was the perfect opportunity to celebrate all Martin Marietta employees and bring their families together, all while promoting the importance of safety.
“Employee Day was a great way for us to thank our valued employees for their commitment and all their hard work, and to let their families gain a deeper appreciation for what their loved ones do on a daily basis,” said North Carolina West District Vice President-General Manager Steve Bruce.
The event was made possible thanks to the work of a planning committee made up of several managers. Employee Day kicked-off with a reminder about the importance of safety and how all Martin Marietta employees can contribute to maintaining safe environments both at work and home. One of the highlights of Employee Day was a tour of the quarry, which gave families a chance to see and experience the work their family members do at Martin Marietta. “We have several employees who have worked for us for 20 or 30 years, and their spouses had never been to the location,” said District Production Manager Paul Ware.
Planning is already underway for the 2014 Employee Day, and there is a lot to look forward to, including a new location and even more activities. But there is more to this event than just fun and games.
“At Martin Marietta, each individual location and region holds a lot of family values, and that is true from the bottom to the top of our organization,” said Bruce. “That is what makes Martin Marietta so special – the family-type atmosphere. Demonstrating these values for our employees and our families goes a long way.”
