Employee: Michael Diaz

My name is Michael Diaz and I’m the process excellence lead for Hubbell Construction Services.


What drew you to apply at Hubbell?

I’m a Des Moines, Iowa, native – I grew up in Des Moines and over the years I’ve watched how lively and beautiful it’s become, and I also know that Hubbell has had a huge part in that. So to me it only makes sense – “who wouldn’t want to be part of something like that?” Also I think it’s really cool to say you work for a company who’s been in business for over 150 years. There’s a lot of background there, so that’s really awesome.

What are some of your favorite things about your position?

I have a pretty interesting role in that I’m in a support role as process improvement. I tell people I get paid to learn and teach, so I get to work with people to uncover problems that they come across in their everyday jobs and then understand the reality of that situation and come up with a solution to hopefully fix it. The best part about that is the solution is going into helping that person’s job on a daily basis, so they get the benefit directly.

What Hubbell core value speaks to you most?

We go back to my unique role as process improvement, and actually one of our core values is “having a mindset for process improvement.” I think that’s very telling about Hubbell as a company because typically support roles aren’t necessarily the primary focus, but to back that up and have it as a core value I think speaks volumes to Hubbell actually being true to process improvement and believing in it.

What advice would you give to job seekers looking at Hubbell?

I would say go for it! Don’t hold back, like “I’m not really sure,” because you don’t want to miss out on a chance to work for such a progressive-minded company in Hubbell.
