Bright Spot award

We believe that all our VPR employees are exceptional in the work they do. However, there are employees who can be easily identified as being a bright spot.

These employees have discovered an easy or unique solution for an everyday problem or situation. By doing things differently, they contribute to higher productivity, cost-efficiency, service and excellence. More importantly, their methods can be easily emulated by others.

In turn, the result is effective, positive change in the way we all do business or tackle problems.
