Giroux Glass Inc. announced that it received Crestcom International’s 2021 Global Leadership Growth Award. Giroux was chosen from among the pool of candidates submitted by Crestcom international affiliates. The award is given to a single company or organization that judges determine “demonstrates an extraordinary commitment to talent and leadership development.”
Kelley Connell, a Crestcom leadership expert, nominated Giroux Glass because, she says, “Giroux Glass continually seeks innovation in its processes, methods and materials, both in the field and in the office. The organization provides training to keep employees up to speed with the latest techniques and skills with lunch-and-learns, access to webinars, and membership in top industry associations. Giroux Glass strives for excellence in everything it does and understands the importance of preparing employees for future leadership roles.”
In recent years, 13 Giroux employees have completed the Bullet Proof Management (BPM) program, with another seven on track to graduate this year. An additional four employees are enrolled in Crestcom’s post-graduate continuing education program.
“The Crestcom BPM Program has offered our Giroux team members the key training we need to shape a strong foundation of leadership skills,” says Nataline Lomedico, Giroux Glass’ CEO and president, who has always contended that preparing employees to take on greater leadership roles is a major component of Giroux Glass’ succession program.
