January 10, 2003 Jacksonville, Florida - Landstar System, Inc., a safety-first, non-asset based provider of transportation capacity, has named Patricia Hutcheson, a documentation specialist at the Jacksonville Service Center, Employee of the Month for January.
A valued Landstar employee for three years, Hutcheson joined the Quality Assurance department last March. She quickly impressed co-workers and superiors with her ability to organize and maintain procedures, documents, and work instructions crucial to the Landstar Management System.
Hutcheson doesn't shy away from tackling tough problems. She developed a process for 1,100 Landstar employees to schedule a training seminar at their convenience. She also was instrumental in streamlining administrative functions between her department and others.
"Patricia's efforts play a vital role keeping Landstar operating companies certified to the latest ISO Quality Management System Standards," said Landstar President and COO Henry Gerkens. "She is a team player and we are fortunate to have her."
Hutcheson stays busy outside of work, too. She spends much of her free time at home with her family in Jacksonville Beach, Florida, but still finds time to participate in the Landstar pen pal program.
