Shared Core Values make a difference in the community

January 30, 2020

Team Fishel’s Shared Core Values provide guidance that our Teammates can rely upon whether at work, at home, or in their communities. And while we often hear about Shared Core Values being applied on the job, their community impact is less well known. But that impact is huge! With the New Year upon us, it is a great time to have a look.

Here are a few examples of Fishel Teammates demonstrating our Shared Core Values in their communities:

Interacting with residents

In September 2017, Team Fishel crews helped restore electric power for thousands of Florida residents in the wake of Hurricane Irma. While working in Tampa, Teammates Chad Jackson and John Seymour made time for an on-camera interview with a very young broadcast journalist. Check it out! Chad and John’s interaction with the community was a wonderful way to Promote Team Fishel. Their on-camera participation also gave us a refreshing perspective of ‘High Performance’.

Helping when fire breaks out

In early 2018, Kentucky Teammates Vinnie Hall and Aaron Owens helped avert a tragedy when a fire broke out in an apartment building in downtown Lexington. They spotted smoke coming from an upstairs window and responded immediately, guiding several tenants and two domestic pets to safety. Their actions reflect Team Fishel’s unwavering pursuit of Safety and the Teammates’ personal initiative to Be the Solution in an emergency.

Assisting an accident victim

In December 2019, Arizona Teammates Korben Price and Jesse Wybron were passing a motor vehicle accident on Arizona I-17. They immediately stopped to help and assisted an injured victim until the paramedics arrived. Once again, our Teammate’s actions focused on creating a safe environment and demonstrated their personal commitment to High Performance, even when off the job site.

While these are a few prominent examples of Team Fishel’s Shared Core Values at work, there are many more! Outstanding participation happens year after year in events such as the Kentucky division’s Annual Thanksgiving Food Drive, the Akron operation’s Holiday Toy Drive, and in local United Way campaigns throughout our service area. 

The broad impact of Team Fishel’s Shared Core Values never ceased to amaze, and we are immensely proud of our Teammates who live by them every day.
