CYI Plan Improved: New Awards, Faster Handling

D. F. MacLauchian

D. F. Schermerhorn

D. MacLauchlan, D. Schermerhorn

Earn New Positions In Technical

Effective January 1, 1968, D.
T'. MacLauchlan and D. L.
ichermerhorn advanced to new
positionss in the Technical De.
Donald MacLauchlan was
tamed engineering associate in
he Economics & Planning Di-
'ision, while Devon ("Pete")
ichermerhorn was promoted to
supervising chemist in the Lab-
wratories' Analytical & Develop-
nent Section.
Donald, a B.S. graduate in
chemical engineering of Queen's
University, Canada, was origin-
lly employed with the Halifax
;efinery before coming to Lago
1 1965. He was assigned to the
'echnical-Economics & Plan.
,ing Division as senior engineer.
Married and the father of two
children Donald is at present
on special assignment with Esso
research & Engineering Com-
)any, Florham Park, N. J.
Pete came to Lago's Techni-
cal Laboratories in 1956 as
chemist "C", where he subse-
quently worked as engineer "C",
chemist and chemical engineer
in Lab. No. 3. In 1964 he was
promoted to the position of sen-

Several new features have
been added to the CYI Plan ef-
fective January 1, 1968.

Minimum Award Now FIs. 40

To place more value on em-
ployees' ideas, the minimum
award for an adopted CYI has
been raised from Fls. 25 to
Fls. 40. Also, the time consum-
ing point scoring system for
ideas with intangible savings or
pertaining to safety has been
eliminated. The award for such
ideas is now Fls. 40.

"Problem Area" Ideas Earn
FIs. 50 Extra

An extra bonus award of
Fls. 50 is now paid for adopted
ideas pertaining to a "problem
area". This is an area where it
is felt operations can be im-
proved. Each month, the CYI
Committee will select one area
from departmental suggestions

Ideas Handled Faster

Ideas with intangible savings
or pertaining to safety can now
be processed much faster. The
exclusion of the scoring system
curtails the supervisor's and the
CYI Committee's time when re-
viewing such ideas. It also elim-
inates the inequity in ratings
from different reviewers. The
new award is higher than the
average award previously given.

More Recognition for

To give more recognition to
first line supervisors, the "Dia-
rio" and "Esso News" will pub-
licize every six months the
names of supervisors whose em-
ployees submit (a) the largest
number of adopted ideas, and
(b) ideas that produce the high.
est savings.
