他们坚守阵地,抗击风暴

As Hurricane Maria approached Puerto Rico, Cummins Sales Representatives Ricardo Diaz and Rafael Mitchell, as well as Regional Business Manager Daniel Ortiz, quickly realized this was going to be a storm unlike any they had seen before.

They knew there would be much to do once the hurricane passed. So, while many residents left the island if they could, Diaz, Mitchell and Ortiz stayed behind along with every employee at the Cummins branch in Cataño, Puerto Rico. Less than a week after the storm hit Sept. 20, 2017, everyone was back at the branch, helping customers and those in need get back on their collective feet.

"Cummins is more than just a provider of equipment, we help our communities," Diaz said. "It really shows that we live by our values, and that we are part of the community."

RISING TO THE CHALLENGE

The hurricane left more than 3 million residents without power and destroyed most of the island’s electrical grid. For almost nine months, much of the U.S. territory was dependent on new and existing generators for power if they had power at all. Some residents are still without electricity today due to the fragility of the grid.

“The first four weeks were critical,” Ortiz recalled. “Everyone, including us, were making the impossible happen.”

The Cummins team transported products to key installations such as hospitals and shelters across Puerto Rico. The branch shared its supplies and expertise with groups desperately in need of help, regardless of whether they were Cummins customers.

But maybe the most important effort Cummins employees undertook was at one of the main utility generating stations near the branch. Even though the station uses steam turbines and boilers to generate power, a Cummins technician and his supervisor played a key role in getting electricity flowing from the station into the island’s largest city, San Juan. That, in turn, got electricity to one of Puerto Rico’s largest hospitals and the water utility, too.

Company technicians were on site 24/7 looking after generators at the Convention Center, home to both the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s headquarters as well as Puerto Rico’s largest shelter. Technicians were also on duty at all ports on the island where power was critical to keep perishable food donations safe. 

 “The first four weeks were the worst,” Diaz said. “The scarcity of products at supermarkets, six-hour lines for gas and diesel and the tense moments while people were in those lines were a real challenge and very stressful situations. 

“But Puerto Ricans really came through with empathy to each other, acceptance, adaptation and reliance during those difficult times,” he said.

AWARD WINNERS PRAISE TEAM APPROACH

Ortiz said every member of the Cummins team was working long hours so the branch tried to create spaces where employees could get an occasional break before heading back out.

The team put cots out in the branch, which already included a washer, dryer and refrigerator that became critical features after the storm. The team also rented an apartment nearby to provide some additional space for breaks. Cummins delivered water, food and Wi-Fi routers to get the branch open and keep the team nourished for those long hours. 

Diaz and Mitchell were recently honored with Cummins Legendary Sales Awards for their actions and performance during the storm. But they are quick to say the response to Hurricane Maria was a total team effort.

For example, Nabil Contreras, Caribbean Commercial Sales Director, worked tirelessly from the mainland United States to get equipment and support into Puerto Rico. The entire Cummins Caribbean team worked with the network of Cummins Sales and Service North America branches to prepare for the storm, assess its aftermath and plan for recovery.

The company’s Crisis Action Management Program helped ensure the branch had needed supplies, and many Cummins Sales and Service regions sent their own technicians to the island to help.

 “There are so many great stories behind-the-scenes from customers and employees that would make all of us working at Cummins proud,” Diaz said.

 By working together, Cummins employees kept desperately needed power Always On.

员工推动膳食培训,为前线的医护人员提供食物

该餐车的食品和甜点在印第安纳州哥伦布市的前线医护人员中受到了极大的打击。
该餐车的食品和甜点在印第安纳州哥伦布市的前线医护人员中受到了极大的打击。

自从 COVID-19 第一次到达,医护人员就一直处于前线。康明斯税务会计和前哥伦布地区健康(CRH)员工范妮比他们在这场大流行期间所承受的情况更好,并感到不得不提供帮助。

范妮一直在思考和祈求指导,以便对她在印第安纳州哥伦布市的家庭社区产生影响,并帮助她在哥伦布地区医院的前任同事。当她听到有关在印第安纳州印第安纳波利斯发生的一顿膳食列车的消息时,她的祈祷得到了回应。

"我听到新闻报道,印第安纳波利斯的一个个人为印第安纳波利斯的医院的基本员工提供膳食培训." 范妮说。"我以为这就是它!我可以创建一个在关键需求部门为哥伦布地区医院的基本员工提供膳食. "

膳食培训 是一家位于佛蒙特州伯灵顿的人群采购平台,在2010年后由一对夫妇组织膳食来支持一个有孩子的邻里家庭。该网站允许社区成员注册以支付由社区餐厅提供的膳食,然后再送到收件人那里,并且现在已由世界各地的人们使用。

将列车投入运行

作为一名前 CRH 员工,范妮知道她需要联系哪些人来完成膳食培训,并向 CRH 的志愿服务总监伸出手,以确保一切顺利完成。

在与利百加(沃尔什)联系后,我在个人 Facebook 页面上张贴了有关膳食列车的信息,并向社区的教会发出通知,要求他们张贴他们的社交媒体. "

社区的响应是即时的;数个个人、家庭和小团体签署,以填补可用的膳食插槽。此外,还有几个人为这项努力捐了钱。响应使膳食列车能够超越 CRH 的前线工人,并延伸至该地区的两个诊所、PromtMed COVID 诊所以及家庭和内科 COVID 诊所。

范妮的膳食列车为30人在 CRH、PromptMed COVID 诊所的18名员工提供午餐和晚餐,并在家庭和内科 COVID 诊所为18名员工共进午餐。

范妮说: "我们能够在5月4日前整整两个星期为医院的开业提供膳食.""在5月4日,当医院重新启动,允许程序发生,我们有500冰淇淋圣代交付给 CRH 和18由乳制品皇后交付给每个 COVID 诊所,作为一个欢迎回来,并感谢工人们在这一大流行病中所做的一切."

简单的仁慈行为

范妮没有任何额外的膳食培训餐计划,但是,她在大流行期间继续提供帮助,通过削减面料,为有高风险的家庭成员提供口罩和杂货店购物。她对寻求帮助的其他人也有一些建议,但谁不知道该怎么做。

"简单的善意行为可以走很长的路," 范妮说。"即使在家里,也有很多方法可以回馈,无论是为自制口罩裁剪布料、缝制自制口罩、为老年人购买杂货、制作贺卡送到养老院或关机等。简单地与某人分享微笑将会有很大的帮助. "

创造更多元化、更具包容性的社会

司各脱

下稿由 康明斯公司副总裁兼首席行政官 撰写。

本周,美国最高法院发布了两项裁决,标志着共同努力创造一个更加多元化和包容性的社会的积极步骤。

在星期一(6月15日,2020),法院裁定,禁止工作场所歧视的主要联邦法律还保护同性恋、女同性恋或变性员工,不受其性取向的约束或开除。我们感到鼓舞的是,法院裁定明确指出,这种歧视是非法的,我们将继续大力倡导我们的 LGBTQ + 员工及其家属的权利。

今天,最高法院支持了王牌行政当局在2017年撤销的《儿童抵港(达卡)计划》的延期行动。

The ruling protects more than 800,000 people, who were brought to the U.S. as children, often referred to as Dreamers, and have largely resided here for decades. Dreamers, including many of our Cummins colleagues, have built careers, raised families and contributed to U.S companies, universities and communities. They are as American as any of us and deserve to continue to live and thrive in the U.S. and this important ruling protects them from being deported.

这些裁决令人鼓舞,但这两方面仍有很多工作要做。

我们在美国的移民制度已被打破,我们需要进行更多的系统性改革,以使其更加公平。如果我们要继续在全球范围内竞争,我们需要能够雇用和安置世界上最有才华的工人。我们需要继续提倡为所有 LGBTQ + 人提供平等保护。

梦想家和 LGBTQ + 社区是我们的同事、我们的朋友和我们的邻居。本周,我们国家最高法院采取了两个重要步骤,承认每个人都值得尊重和平等。

在多元化和包容性方面,我国仍然面临许多其他挑战。在康明斯,我们致力于成为积极变革的推动者,无论是在工作场所、社区还是在我们政府的各级,我也鼓励你们大家也这样做。
