Speaker Bio: Andrew Meeks is 3M’s Government Transportation Safety Specialist for the Transportation Safety Division. He has been in the industry for 8 years and been here in Indiana for 4 years working alongside INDOT, local agencies, and the contractors performing much of the roadway work and striping. The Transportation Safety Division specializes in and manufactures reflective sign sheeting and durable pavement marking materials designed to make roads safer. 3M has invented many of the technologies used on today’s roads everywhere such as Fluorescent sign sheeting, Diamond Grade Sheeting, and wet reflective technology for pavement markings. In Andrew’s role, he partners with agencies to help them improve their specifications and identify projects where these technologies should be used to help create greater safety and durability with their roadway infrastructure. Today, Andrew is here to show you some of these technologies, discuss the future of roadways, and how it may foster the same safety and durability in your cities and counties.
The Carrot or the Stick? Employee Engagement - Webinar (May 4, 2021 1:30pm-2:30pm EDT)
More now than ever, agencies that maintain highways, roads, and streets are counted on to provide fast, high quality service because good maintenance saves lives and money. Meanwhile, the roadway system is growing in size and complexity, and government agencies are under ever-greater scrutiny by the public to perform at their very best. While maintenance needs increase, the workers, equipment, and funds remain in short supply. Shortages or not, it is vital that workers do good work. The best and quickest way to encourage this is through effective motivation and engagement by their immediate supervisors. This webinar looks at what makes agencies successful, how to define worker needs and wants, and how to take advantage of those for increased productivity and employee engagement. Is it the Carrot or the Stick? Join us and find out!
