Excellence in Action Recognition Program

BIW understands the importance of listening to feedback received from all employees, and recognizing employees who have exceeded expectations. To reward employees for their contribution, BIW is introducing the “Excellence in Action” (EIA) Award recognition program. This program seeks to recognize employees who have had creative new ideas, promoted exceptional teamwork, gone above and beyond expectations, or demonstrated exemplary leadership skills. These are behaviors that will help our team recover and maintain our schedule and cost performance.

Program Details

  • Any employee may nominate any other employee
  • Nominations must be submitted by the close of business on the 3rd Thursday of the month
  • Nominations will be reviewed by representatives from each bargaining unit JSRC, and other union and company leadership representatives
  • Up to Six (6) winners will be chosen each month January – November
  • December is reserved for end-of-year award
  • Winners will each receive a $50 gift card to various businesses and a certificate of appreciation
  • Winners will have a recognition photo posted in an article in an upcoming BIW News
  • All monthly winners will be entered into an end-of-year “Appreciation Award” drawing
    • Two end-of-year “Appreciation Award” winners will be drawn from the monthly winners, and each will be given four (4) FHLs available for use during the current year’s winter shutdown or anytime the following calendar year
      • Drawing will be held and winners announced in December
      • Winners who request to use their awarded FHLs during the shutdown week must use all four to cover their time during the shutdown week. Employees will not be permitted to roll awarded FHLs requested for the shutdown week over to the following year
  • Employees can be nominated and rewarded multiple times for the monthly awards if applicable
    • There will be only one entry per employee for the end-of-year “Appreciation Drawing” regardless of the number of monthly awards they may have received
