Faces of Faith Technologies | Meet Tyson, Foreman
At Faith Technologies, we have some amazing employees who make our culture unique. The Faces of Faith Technologies series aims to highlight the talented individuals who work with us. Each month, we’ll introduce you to several of these individuals so you can get to know the ‘Faces of Faith Technologies.’ We recently talked to Tyson Orton, a foreman currently working out of Oklahoma. Here’s what he had to say:
What led you to work for Faith Technologies?
Many of my co-workers at my prior employer left for Faith, and told me how great of a company it was, so I followed suit. They were right; Faith takes care of its employees and recognizes individual contributions.
What does your position entail?
Each morning we begin with the ORM process and ClickSafety question. As a foreman, I oversee 15 employees between the power and basket tray crews. We’re currently working to remove buss plugs and replace them with new ones on the buss duct in our section, and I fill in wherever needed. Otherwise my day focuses on ensuring the project is on schedule, within budget and being completed in a safe manner. This includes everything from establishing expectations and goals with the team to completing paperwork, like the foreman log, performance evaluations and time card.
What are some of your favorite things about your job?
The crew I work with and the work we perform are my favorite things; we work collectively to achieve common goals, which makes coming to work more enjoyable.
What’s the most challenging part of your position?
Transitioning to a leadership role was a challenge; leading employees and preparing paperwork was an adjustment, but I am enjoying the journey. I had to trade in my flip phone for a smartphone, so that was a change as well!
What are some of your hobbies or interests outside of work?
I prefer to be outside hunting or fishing. We live on Fort Gibson Lake, so quail and pheasant hunting with my bird dog, Lady, keeps me busy after work. My parents live in Wagoner as well, and we spend Sunday afternoons with them following church service. We love going to In the Raw Sushi in Tulsa, OK – it’s fantastic!
Are there any personal accomplishments you’d like to share?
One of my biggest accomplishments is being happily married to my wife, Alexandra. Professionally, obtaining my Journeyman’s license is one of my biggest accomplishments. I studied for hours prior to the exam and it was a huge win for me.
Do you have any aspirations inside or outside of work?
I’d love to shoot an elk! There are guided hunts available in Colorado that I would pursue; the thrill of the chase, being outside, and the challenge of outsmarting an animal would be a story I could tell for years to come.
