Reflections ... Happy Labor Day!


“It is only through labor and painful effort, by grim energy and resolute courage, that we move on to better things.” ~ Theodore Roosevelt

Happy Labor Day!

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, today “constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.” Did you know Labor Day originally started off in the unions as a day to commemorate the hard work that has led us to the strength and leadership that we see today?

This day is dedicated to all of the hard workers – YOU. On behalf of our APM family, we thank all of you for your commitment in time, energy, and perseverance.

This week I ask that you reflect on your contribution to our APM, our customers, and our industry:

  • How have you championed our safety keystone, helping all to go home safe 100%?

  • How have you delivered quality craftsmanship to our customers who provide power and other valuable products to our neighbors?

  • How have you advocated for the value that hard workers like yourself bring to our society?

Fall Focuses

As we return to our roles following the holiday, I also ask you refamiliarize and refocus on the strategies we have identified to deliver a successful fall outage season and second half. Please see the attached slide (in email copy of the blog) for more details about all of our 2019 Fall Focuses, along with other Key Enablers. Building on the momentum we have, I am confident we will deliver excellence this fall and finish 2019 strong.

Thanks again for all that you contribute to make APM (and beyond) strong, prosperous, and well.
