Innovation comes in many forms and from a variety of sources. At TraceGains, we challenged our team to think differently – to think outside the box (pardon the cliché).
For the past year, TraceGains employees have submitted innovative idea after innovative idea for a chance to win a coveted TraceGains Innovation Award and prize. More than half of the company submitted their ideas and many of them have already been implemented or are in the process of being implemented.
Simon Orrell, Senior Account Executive, won the Platinum prize – a luxury trip for two to Hawaii – for a set of ideas on delivering food safety document management more rapidly, efficiently, and economically to a broader segment of the food and CPG supply chain.
Mark LaRoche, Systems Quality Assurance, won the Gold prize – a luxury 3-day weekend for two at the Aspen St. Regis – for his ideas to better automate communication with TraceGains Network’s supplier ecosystem.
Dana Johnson Downing, Director of Strategic Partnerships, won the Silver prize – a high end dinner and wine tasting for 4 at Colorado’s premier restaurant, the Flagstaff House – for her ideas around synchronizing food and CPG customers’ supplier base with TraceGains Network.
At TraceGains, we pride ourselves in maintaining a strong company culture of innovation, collaboration, and fun – and the winners of this year’s TraceGains Innovation Awards truly exemplify this culture.
Please join us in congratulating Simon Orrell, Mark LaRoche, and Dana Johnson Downing!
