COE Distributing CEO J.D. Ewing Shares Management Insights at UnleashWD Human Resources Summit
By: COE Distributing
Ewing joins select businesses and HR executives from the wholesaler-distributor realm in providing guidance to help human resources professionals balance strategic business objectives with employee security and satisfaction.
Ewing will participate in a panel discussion entitled People First: Tactics For Unlocking Employee Potential And Increasing Profit, along with Nicholas Porter, CEO of Porter Pipe & Supply, and Scott Larson, CEO of Gustave A. Larson.
"I'm pleased to be part of this unique gathering focused on forward-thinking HR strategies,"
When Ewing took the helm at COE in 1989, he was its sole employee — tackling sales, driving trucks, loading product and learning each position inside and out. This direct experience at every level of the business, coupled with a passionate commitment to employee engagement, form the core of his leadership style.
Ewing developed a robust employee engagement program which spurred COE's growth from a one-man operation into a 100-plus family of employees.
Ranked a Top Workplace by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, COE offers career development programs like Rising Stars training, employee recognition and profit-sharing, as well as personal benefits such as financial workshops, volunteer paid time off and virtual book clubs. As the official employee engagement partner of the Pittsburgh Penguins, COE instituted a biweekly peer-to-peer recognition program awarding a game-worn Penguins helmet to an employee embodying COE's Core Values of Customer Service, Respect, Teamwork, Quality, Safety, Innovation and Transparency.
"COE's culture of engagement and collaboration, nurtured by J.D., is a prime example of creating a world-class employee experience,"
