We take tremendous pride in the many awards and honors we’ve received around the globe. But the measure of success is not how many awards we win. We’re successful when our employees are happy and empowered to do the right thing. We’re successful when our local and global communities are thriving, and when our customers and partners feel well-served. That said, winning awards is certainly nice, too.
