POPin Honors Charlie Brown of Oldcastle with Constellation Award

We are excited to announce that the March 2017 POPin Constellation Honoree is Charlie Brown, CFO of Oldcastle Materials. POPin established the Constellation Award to recognize collaborative and innovative leaders using the POPin platform, and Brown clearly represents these qualities in the way he empowers the 20,000 employees in his organization to let their voices be heard. Brown’s emphasis on giving every employee a voice, especially the ones that are hard to hear, ensures the best ideas are brought to the forefront. Engagement in a company with over 20,000 employees is difficult- and Brown understands how critical it is that everyone understands what direction the company is going and has the ability to contribute to it. His dedication to engagement connects leadership to the rest of the company. Additionally, Oldcastle uses POPin to overcome employees’ reluctance to change by addressing the most important issues and engaging them to understand where they’ve missed the mark and what they’re doing well. The company uses the tool to help standardize procedures, leverage best practices, focus on innovation, and refine their defined processes.
