“Competition with a purpose,” Honda North America’s Hugo Beltran smiles as he summarizes Honda’s first Skills Olympics held at the Marysville, Ohio, site on March 6, 2014. “As a company, we recognized the need to focus some effort on our equipment service technicians (aka skilled tradespeople), how they are an integral part of our organization. On a daily basis, we depend on our equipment service technicians to communicate with our operations people, troubleshoot equipment, identify faults, and make repairs or modifications to keep our equipment up and running. We also wanted to create an event that incorporated the teamwork from the executive level to the equipment technicians, while incorporating Honda’s core philosophy of a challenging spirit,” the associate chief engineer explained. “At the end of the day, while only one team went home with the gold medals, everyone who was involved came out a winner.”
