Audrey and Vu are Aerojet Rocketdyne's second quarter 2021 Values Champions for ADAPTABILITY. Audrey recognizes that the company's values are important because our customers are important and what we do matters. Values add quality to our products, make us accountable as a business, and generate confidence from our customers in the services and products we provide.
To Audrey, who has been with the company for two years, the value of Adaptability means having the ability to adjust and make changes in oneself or one's circumstances, creating a favorable environment to achieve the best outcome for everyone in any and every situation.
"I love what I do and serving my customers daily is an honor," said Audrey. "For me, being able to adapt to situations and change provides me with the continued gift of growth and knowledge, both professionally and personally."
Annette, Audrey's manager, says, "Audrey has the unique ability to reprioritize quickly when changes are needed. She often suggests additional modifications when something's not working and adapts to the new situation with confidence."
Vu recognizes that the company's values are important because they help ensure that a company has the right people within their organization to produce good quality products on time.
Vu, who has been with the company four years, is a valuable member of the team and an exceptional leader who knows what it takes to get things done quickly, safely and on schedule. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Vu has adapted his work schedule to ensure there is minimal impact to the Camden sites’ mix operations.
"It is an honor being a part of a company that provides systems for our warfighters and helps defend our nation," said Vu. "Knowing that every piece of hardware that I work on, or operations that I cast, must be reliable for our customers and soldiers, motivates me to do my job to the best of my abilities."
Beyond demonstrating the ability to adapt to a changing work schedule to meet customer commitments, Vu's work ethic is inspiring his colleagues. This is leading to improvements in productivity, morale and teamwork in the area in which he works.
Jermaine, a supervisor in Vu's area said, "The night crew looks up to Vu for his leadership and experience. Vu is always willing to lend a hand and he does not mind accepting a challenge. His work ethic and drive to get the job done right and safely the first time motivates others to do better."
