The Unifrax Core Values Role Model Award recognizes our employees who achieve great results and make others better by living the Core Values and using them to inform their daily work habits. In 2020 we selected eight individuals who stand out from everyone else and are seen as someone who exemplifies all that is great about Unifrax. Unifrax reintroduced their core values across the global company of 4,000+ employees worldwide in 2018, followed by the introduction of the annual Core Values Role Model awards in 2019.
Earlier in March, John Dandolph, CEO of Unifrax, announced the eight 2020 Core Values Role Model award winners to the company. “We had another fantastic turnout with over 60 nominations being submitted. I always enjoy hearing how so many of our Unifrax employees live the Core Values. When we demonstrate them in our day to day work lives, I believe they help us achieve greater results; the stories and examples shared were inspirational.” said Dandolph. The nominations are submitted by Unifrax peers from across the world.
