Wishing You a Very Happy Holidays from All of Us at Hunt Electric Corporation

2020 – WHAT A YEAR!

The COVID-19 pandemic has presented businesses worldwide with unprecedented obstacles to protecting employees while maintaining high quality operations.

While the past year has been full of surprises, we knew we could count on one thing:
the exceptional team at Hunt Electric.

With 2021 just around the corner (we made it!) we’re celebrating the holidays with a closer look at the core value that got us through the year: PERFORMANCE!

Safe & Social-Distant

2020 put our corporate safety team to the ultimate test. From developing our COVID-19 Response plan which included stringent sanitation measures and implementing company-wide social distancing strategies, we’re proud to say: they passed with flying colors.

Our 2020 Safety Highlights

  • Meeting increased PPE requirements for field and office personnel
  • Training leadership staff on enhanced safety and sanitation standards
  • Intensified disinfection procedures for all shared spaces
  • Job-site and corporate HQ social distancing protocol
  • New process to identify and isolate potentially ill personnel
  • Accommodating technology needs for all staff capable of working remotely
  • Adapting and conducting our Field Leadership Training 100% Remotely

Safer at Home
(With a Shorter Commute!)

Like many businesses, we expanded our remote work policy to keep our staff safer-at-home with their families. With so much uncertainty, we did everything we could to ensure the transition to a virtual workspace was one less stressor on their plates.

Our 2020 WFH Highlights

  • Our IT team went into overdrive, setting up over 200 office personnel with the right tech for the job.
  • In-person processes – including project pursuit, group brainstorms, and interview prep – were modified for the digital space.
  • We kept our teams connected with virtual get-togethers, digital team building, and a “guess who: home office edition” campaign.
  • CEO John Axelson kept everyone in the loop with weekly email updates and regular progress reports
  • Our annual company-wide meeting went digital, along with training sessions and ESOP briefings.

Innovating Through Uncertainty

With many projects paused or delayed at the start of the second quarter, maximizing efficiency was more important than ever. Here’s how we stayed on track:

Prefabrication: Our 30,000+ square foot prefab shop enabled our crews to work ahead in a safe and controlled environment.

Advanced Construction Planning (ACP): By centralizing communication through our ACP team, we eliminated confusion and ensured project updates get where they needed to be – and fast!

Powering the Future of Crisis Response

In May, we joined a fast-tracked effort to support our nation’s healthcare facilities – when they need it, where they need it.

In just one month, our team moved from ideation to completed proof-of-concept for a self-cleaning, modularized medical center. These mobile structures are designed to be deployed as needed to pandemic hotspots throughout the country.

To date, our containerized solutions have helped relieve stressed healthcare infrastructure in Honolulu, Hawaii and El Paso, Texas. We are currently working on a lab based solution to help with the testing needs of COVID-19.

So here’s to collaboration and community – and thank you for your support throughout this unprecedented year.
