TINKER AIR FORCE BASE, Okla. – Twelve Air Force Life Cycle Management Center Logistics Directorate employees at Tinker Air Force Base, recently graduated from the base’s Employee Enhancement Program.
The program was conducted over the course of a year, with participants meeting twice a month for briefings, tours, workshops and communication, teamwork and leadership training.
The EEP was started in 1998 to provide Tinker Air Force Base employees with the tools needed to become better workers, leaders, supervisors, and managers and increase their knowledge and understanding of the base and the Tinker Complex.
“EEP was a stepping stone to understanding teamwork on a grand scale,” said Keith Williams, a program manager with the Legacy Tankers Division and an EEP graduate. “Anyone who desires to be a successful leader at Tinker AFB should know what the complete infrastructure is all about. What stood out most (during the program) is how varying organizations on Tinker come together in one way or another to consistently produce the world’s most amazing aircraft. Keeping the warfighter ready to engage in any type of situation down range. I’m proud to be part of such an amazing team."
Currently, EEP is managed by the 72nd FSS Training Office. The program is limited to self-nominated civilian participants grades GS-9 through GS-12 and WG-10 through WG-14.
