Since 2014, EACC President's Circle member Definity Partners has been honoring frontline leaders who fuel the manufacturing industry through the Fearless Frontline Leader Award. The award recognizes the day-to-day contributions of frontline leaders across the US who power the manufacturing industry, with 80% of the industry's workforce reporting to a frontline leader.
Candidates are nominated by colleagues who have witnessed their integrity and consistent impact first-hand. Selection criteria focuses on qualities (calm, empathy, nonjudgement, respect, excellence, humility, caring and leads by example) that set apart the best frontline leaders and make them effective in their most critical responsibility: developing their people. Candidates can be nominated from a diverse range of companies/organizations, including manufacturing companies, non-profits and service providers.
Nominations for the 2017 Fearless Frontline Leader Award are now open, and nominating a frontline leader is a special way for leaders in the EACC network to recognize and celebrate their top performers, while also raising the profile of EACC members in the region. All of the necessary details about the program and the nomination process can be found at www.fearlessaward.com. The dealdline to submit nominations is Monday, September 4.
