Joni, the 2017 Q3 ACCOUNTABILITY Values Champion, says, “I think good values were instilled in me as a child by my father. He told us to have integrity, to be honest, and to stand for something because, when you lose your reputation, it’s very hard to get back.”.
A Materials Planner for the Tool Engineering Department in Sacramento, Joni loves her job and has a reputation of which she is very proud. “People rely on me to make tools, revise tools or repair tools, and I need to make sure what I order is done right so I don’t slow down production and inhibit another person’s job,” said Joni. Working in the Tool Engineering Department can be challenging because our team is not just working on one program, they are a functioning member in many programs, according to Joni. However, Joni enjoys the challenge of her work, hitting deadlines and helping others with their jobs anytime she can. “I work with everyone, including the engineers, to order the right materials so we can manufacture the tools that help produce our great products,” says Joni.
