Recognitions make us PQ-Proud

Barb ClearyIt’s nice when people outside a company recognize what a great place it is.

That’s what’s happened at PQ this spring.

Technology First has noticed the work of our IT team. Steve Daum, Software Development Manager for PQ Systems, was nominated for the IT Executive of the Year award. This recognition is given to a senior level professional responsible for influencing progress and developing teams through leadership excellence.

Then, Hanen Alkhafaji, a member of the PQ Systems software development team, was recognized with the Emerging Leader award by Technology First. This award is given to a junior level professional who demonstrates excellence in the workplace and leadership in the community. Alkhafaji has contributed to software development at PQ Systems and shared presentations at organizations in the Dayton community, and has volunteered as an IT consultant to small businesses in the region.

Earlier in the spring, the Dayton Business Journal recognized us as one of the top fifteen organizations in Dayton, in their Best Places to Work contest, with an event last month to celebrate 25 great companies. The award was based on a survey of employees, conducted by the DBJ. More than 90 percent of PQ employees responded to the survey.

You see what I mean. We’re celebrating.
