Living The Values – August Winner

Sep 19, 2019 | Blog

Congratulations to Brian Grafton, FMD Architects’ amazing VP of our Beverage & Hospitality Studio! Brian was awarded our monthly Living the Values Award for our Core Value of Listening. You cannot solve a problem if you aren’t listening, and in August, Brian excelled at problem solving! He did a fantastic job patiently listening to people both inside and outside the office, taking their comments into careful consideration, and developing action plans. There were many fine examples of our core values exemplified by the staff, but this month’s “secret” judges, Angela Charvat and Kelly Thewlis, felt Brian was the best choice. We agree! If you see or talk to Brian, be sure to compliment his efforts! He’ll be listening!
About the award:

In addition to being recognized in front of the entire FMD staff, each award recipient gets to proudly display a Professional Wrestling style belt in his or her cubicle for the next month. The flashy and fun belt was designed with embossed metal placards highlighting each of our core values including Commitment, Listening, Excellence, Adaptability, and Relationships. As an acronym for CLEAR, these values convey our culture as a firm and also serve as a reminder for specific ways we can provide quality service to our clients and our teammates. Look for a posting next month to see who takes over the belt next!
