Jon Sciortino receives BHP Billiton Recognition
Jun 30, 2016
Congratulations to Jon Sciortino, who recently received significant client recognition from BHP Billiton.
Amongst other responsibilities, Jon has recently managed the software upgrades for BHP Billiton’s Autonomous Haul Truck program. A potentially major safety issue arose during a recent upgrade and Jon, in his capacity as the operational representative, was a key member of the problem rectification team. Jon’s collaborative approach, energy and willingness to question traditional thinking, as well as his efforts to mentor and coach the team to approach the issue without bias, helped to identify a root cause and develop a workable solution under considerable time and production pressure.
‘Congratulations Jon on your Oresome Effort in recognition of your contribution to BHP Billiton and the way you live our Charter Values, particularly the values of Performance, Integrity & Respect.’
