- FedEx Five Star Award - 2012 Linda was instrumental in providing clarity and understanding to the franchise concept in support of various regions, as well as the role of Customer Solutions with our Sales partners. She did this by creating the Operating Guides for seven key areas of Customer Solutions. She worked with the various areas in writing the documents, creating the layout, publishing and distributing the guides. Her work established the blueprint for all other Solutions Operating Guides.
- FedEx People First Shining Star - 2012 This award was in recognition of the writing, design and publication of unique guides that explain the work of each team within one organization in a large company. Because we have 270,000+ employees worldwide, it is critical to be able to clearly articulate, internally, what value our teams bring to one another. The guides provide this in a consistent manner. This award also represents the global usage of the guides and the collaboration used to train additional teams, within our company, to develop similar guides.
