Trico won the Technology/Process Improvement category at the Celebrating Innovation in the Workplace awards sponsored by The Society for Human Resource Management of Greater Tucson.
The award was given to employees Alle Rodriguez, Hal Elzweig and Justin Banales, who make up the Support Working to Advance Technology (SWAT) Team. The SWAT Team was formed in February to improve the use of technology at the Cooperative through review, communication and training. For example, by making employees aware of software features that were underused, the SWAT Team has helped make certain jobs easier and faster. For crews out in the field, they are even using less paper by using iPads to perform routine tasks.
