Rome, NY – In its effort to continually evolve and improve its business Bartell has sponsored an internal employee engagement program which it calls “BrightIdeas”. This program has the objective of challenging and engaging the entire workforce in a practice of looking beyond the scope of their current position and reaching for innovative solutions or improvements to our operations, products, and overall business. Whether it is a cost saving solution, improvement in production efficiency, or product related effort Bartell is open to all the ideas its employees may have. Each quarter a committee, comprised of sales, engineering, operations, and leadership, review each of the submitted ideas and select the most impactful or creative for recognition.

For the 1st quarter, Bartell had the opportunity to award five employees for their “BrightIdeas”. These employees were:

  • Geno Ostapuk (Electrical Engineering)
  • George Wagner (Electrical Engineering)
  • Jessica Wagner (Procurement)
  • Robin Yager (Human Resources)
  • Dave Matteson (Technical Support Services)


President Pat Morocco feels that “As a foundational element to Bartell’s culture we believe that each of our employees hold key knowledge and experiences that can help the company reach our objectives of growth, product innovations, wellness, and stewardship. The program was created to provide a structured way in which employees can submit their ideas and ensure that they receive attention at the highest levels. Sometimes employees within an organization may feel that their ideas go unheard but our program was designed to allow us to demonstrate the belief in our employee’s ability to contribute to the company’s innovation and continuous improvement regardless of job function or title. This allows us to create accountability with management and leadership and organize tangible actions on those ideas. Our employees continuously impress and it is an honor to acknowledge their efforts.”

Bartell extends congratulations to each of these award recipients.
