Nick is a project engineer in the transportation department and has been with JEO for a little over a year. He works in the South Sioux City office, and his drive and positive attitude prompted his fellow coworkers to nominate him for employee of the quarter.
Nick was selected as employee of quarter because he has become a vital part of our South Sioux City office and the services we provide in the area. He has an incredible work ethic and thrives on challenges, striving to learn from every new experience. Nick’s coworkers also acknowledged his outstanding work on a recent project in which numerous difficulties came about, difficulties that Nick deftly managed with patience and confidence. Nick has also proven to be a tremendous mentor, willing to both share his knowledge and learn alongside others.
Nick is a member of the American Society of Civil Engineer and was recently appointed to the University of Iowa College Of Engineering Young Alumni Advisory Board. Nick is also on the selection committee for an engineering scholarship, in memory of his late father, awarded to students at East High School in Sioux City, IA.
Outside of work, Nick keeps himself busy. He is a foster parent for dogs (having fostered 20 dogs to date); an active volunteer for Noah’s Hope Animal Rescue, an organization that rescues and rehabilitates stray, rescued, and injured dogs; and an instructor of the fitness program Kosama. He also plays in a church baseball league and is a regular attendee of the Sioux City Explorers games.
JEO’s Employee of the Quarter award started in 2006, and is unique in that coworker nominations are the basis of the award. At the close of each quarter, JEO employees can nominate fellow coworkers who they believe deserve recognition. A selection committee then reviews the nominations and narrows the list of nominees to one name. This quarter, that name was Nick Turner.
Congratulations Nick! Thank you for your continuous dedication and hard work at JEO!
