Employees Offered to Join New

Supervisory Selection P r o gram

Recently Lago introduced a
lew supervisory selection sys-
em which will enable the com-
)any to better and even more
airly appraise and select po-
ential candidates for supervisory
positions. While the first selec-
ion will be to fill supervisory
'acancies in the Mechanical De-
.artment, this program is based
in voluntary application by any
on-supervisory employee at La-
jo who is interested in becom-
ng a supervisor.

Assessment Center

Potential candidates for super-
isory jobs will spend a day or
pnore at the Assessment Center
or an appraisal process. The
,enter is a location where po-
ential candidates will be inter-
iewed, tested and appraised by
ji panel composed of Lago su-
ervisors who have been care-
ully selected and trained for

this purpose.
Candidates will be given var-
ious company-oriented exercises
based on what a typical super-
visor might do. A series of tests
will also be administered as part
of the program.

Panel members will prepare a
composite report on each candi-
date along with recommenda-
tions. Each candidate will re-
ceive a verbal report of the re-
sults of his appraisal with em-
phasis on his strengths and
areas for improvement through
discussions with one or more
panel members.

Who May Apply

Any non-supervisory employee
who feels he has the desire of
becoming a supervisor is en-
couraged to apply to C. Z. de

Gregorio Willems Reaches Milestone

Completing 4 Decades of Service

A milestone seldom reached
was achieved by Gregorio N.
Willems, who works in the Acid
& Edeleanu Plant of Process-
Utilities Division, on June 6. He
is the first Lago employee to
complete 40 years as an active
employee. Outstanding in his
long career is also the fact that
he never sustained a disabling
injury. Effective June 1, Grego-

G. N. Willems

rio was also promoted to Shift
Foreman and attained manage-
ment status.
Gregorio, now 56, began as a
16-year-old young man on April
25, 1933 in the Labor Depart-
ment. In 1935 he was assigned
as a Driver Helper and was a
driver on one of the seven lo-
comotives, on tractors and
trucks. In 1938 he moved to the
Pipe Craft and was also assign-
ed to the Welding Craft. Later

he worked in the Leadburning
Craft from 1939 to 1942.
Gregorio has more than thirty
years in the Acid & Edeleanu
Plant area, which he joined in
September, 1942 as a Process
Helper. Here he progressed to
Controlman and became Assis-
tant Operator in 1946. He was
promoted to permanent Opera-
tor in 1962. Since 1965, Grego-
rio acted several times as a
Shift Foreman for the Acid &
Edeleanu Plant which position
he is occupying at present
What impressed him most in
his early employment was his
work of transporting building
materials and food supplies on
flat cars from ships such as the
"Pan Bolivar", "Paul H. Hard-
wood", "Bedford" and "Steel-
man". He also recalls the U-
boat attack on Lago on Febru-
ary 16, 1942 and the resultant
blackout period during which a
flashlight with a slit of only %"
by %" was used at night.
In his free time, Gregorio
likes gardening, fishing and trav-
eling. Last year he visited Eu-
rope and traveled through Hol-
land, Belgium, Germany and
Married to Yustina, Gregorio
has five sons and one daughter.
They live at Paradijsheuvelstraat,
Lago Heights.
