Congratulations 2014 POEA finalists!

After a rigorous judging process this year’s finalists for the President’s Operational Excellence Awards (POEA) have been determined.

More than 140 approved nominations made it through two rounds of senior leadership review prior to reaching the judging table (a significant accomplishment in and of itself), so to be selected as a finalist speaks volumes about a nominee’s ability to put operational excellence into action.

Each award category – one for each of the four areas of operational excellence (People, Personal and Process Safety, Reliability, and Environment and Sustainability) – has its own panel of judges. All judges are carefully selected for their knowledge and experience in a category, and all have a proven passion for operational excellence.

Award recipients will be announced Nov. 18 at the President’s Operational Excellence Awards Gala at TELUS Convention Centre, Calgary.

All finalists must register to attend this event and make all travel arrangements by October 24.

And the finalists are…
