It is an honor and a testament towards the efforts we have invested to ensure we, as an organization, remain at the forefront of innovation and well-being of our 23,000 ‘USsociates’ across the world. By the elimination of outdated performance ratings, forced-ranking, and episodic feedback, we have shifted to a culture of ongoing, real-time feedback and coaching for our employees. The outstanding recognition by Stevie for UST Global’s new Performance Management approach by the HR Team directly aligns with the company’s vision of ’Transforming Lives’ and making a positive impact on our company and for our employees.”
