One of North America’s leading freight transportation companies BNSF Railway Company (BNSF) recently recognised its 2017 Employees of the Year at an awards ceremony in Fort Worth, Texas. The annual Employees of the Year programme identifies employees who have made exceptional contributions whose achievements exemplify BNSF’s vision and values through their commitment, leadership and focus on working safely and efficiently to meet customer expectations.

BNSF President and CEO, Carl Ice, said: “Employees of the Year is where we celebrate the essential role these employees played in our collective achievements of 2017.” “This year, the teams and individuals we recognised worked to improve safety and efficiency, capture new business, and enhance service while having an impact on the lives of those around them.”

Seventy-three of the more than 41 000 team members across the company were recognised at the ceremony for their individual and team achievements in 2017. Such achievements include: the renovation of BNSF’s Network Operations Centre in Fort Worth; the leadership, performance and execution of Hurricane Harvey recovery efforts; and the positive train control (PTC) infrastructure installation.

In addition, 36 employees who led teams that worked throughout 2017 without a reportable injury were recognised for their leadership in safety last year.
