The A. O. Smith Values Recognition program began in 1995, with two purposes:

  1. to recognize employees who are making positive contributions to the business by serving customers, thinking creatively and solving problems, or working in our communities; and
  2. to create an incentive for other employees to take positive actions that will improve the company and its reputation.

The activities we promote in the A. O. Smith Values Recognition program have a powerful impact on our operations.
