ST. LOUIS, MO – EPIC Systems, Inc. has announced Angela Schwartz as the winner of “The EPIC Way Award” for 2011. The EPIC Way Award is an annual honor given in recognition of the individual who best exemplifies the spirit and values upon which EPIC Systems was founded.
As the recipient of the honor, Schwartz was presented a crystal engraved award at the annual company meeting on February 10th, 2012. She and her family were also given an eleven day trip to “Travel The Rockies” and visit Black Hills, Yellowstone & Grand Teton National Parks. “It’s an honor, it’s like winning a Dove Award. I’m still shocked my name is on it,” Schwartz said.
The winner of the EPIC Way Award is selected by the President of the company, John Schott, and the three group managers. Schott and the managers take the selection of the winner very seriously and struggle to narrow it down to one winner every year.
“EPIC is a high expectation place to work. For someone to win this award out of a group of such high achievers speaks volumes about the chosen employee. Angela is the kind of person who does the right thing when no one is watching. She is proactive in taking the lead on doing what needs to be done, and she is willing to do whatever it takes. She also cares about other people, beyond what her job requires, and makes EPIC a positive place to work.”
Schwartz is an Electrical Designer at EPIC Systems. She has been with the company for five years and has duties ranging from electrical design to project management support.
