Promoting Training with the Biggest User Challenge
The Biggest User Challenge is designed to support employee learning and development and increase awareness of the Learning Management System (LMS). Each quarter, users are recognized for completing either the greatest total number of trainings or accumulating the most training hours. At the end of the year, the Overall Biggest User winners are announced. Tim Luz, Test Engineering Technician in Clermont, Florida, won the 2019 Overall Biggest User award for most training hours completed. He logged more than 100 hours of technical training. The Overall Biggest User winner for most trainings completed was Javier Gonzalez, Molding Technician in San Marcos, California. He completed almost 50 training hours across 300 courses primarily focused on continuous education and technical skills related to his role.

Promoting Safety in Tijuana
Our Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) team works hard to keep our employees safe. One example from 2019 comes from Tijuana. There, EHS instituted an innovative “Find and Fix” program to engage employees in identifying opportunities to achieve health and safety goals. Employees have submitted 140 ideas on how to improve health or safety within their workspaces. The team evaluates all requests and has implemented 34 so far. Find and Fix has inspired employees, boosted morale, and improved the safety of our facilities. We plan to continue our efforts. Special thanks to EHS coordinator Genoveva Moreira for leading this project.
We are proud to support the communities where we live, work, and play. An internal committee identifies opportunities throughout the year to distribute charitable giving into three core areas: education, community, and the environment.
Over the last three years, Hunter Industries donated more than $1.8 million to charitable efforts. In 2019, we supported over 50 organizations. Generally, we invest in organizations serving Southern California and greater Clermont, Florida, in the United States and Northern Baja California in Mexico. Since most of our employees live in these regions, we feel our contributions have the greatest impact in these areas.
Community Outreach with Senninger Helping Others (SHO)
Our team in Clermont formed Senninger Helping Others (SHO), a group focused on the health and well-being of the local community. For the inaugural SHO event in December 2019, 20 volunteers representing every department signed up to purchase, wrap, and deliver holiday gifts for 13 families in need. More than 50 employees donated money to purchase gifts including bicycles, dolls, and tablets. SHO teamed up with Chick-fil-A® and the Clermont Police Department to host a festive block party where gifts were delivered. Volunteers also worked with Sleep in Heavenly Peace, a nonprofit organization dedicated to ending child bedlessness, to build and donate three beds to local families.
