When managing staff, our company principle is to know the difference
between skill and will. There are two main reasons for underperformance: a skill gap or a will gap. A skill gap is easy to close through
coaching, training, and support that Naughton Energy provides to our
staff. A will gap is more difficult to close. You need to take time to dig
into your employee’s motivation. Do they understand how their work fits
into the big picture? Also, we offer incentives and raises based on job
performance and accuracy.
When undertaking a new client or project, Naughton Energy uses a
multi-faceted approach with a mix of planning, monitoring and controlling
ownership of the product. When working with fuelling the construction
companies’ sites, we take ownership over our fuel and assure that transportation and deliveries are on time and with safe high quality results.
Our unique value sets us apart from other companies in this industry.
Naughton Energy Corporation has a sound credit rating that allows the
purchasing of products from a variety of refiners, and provides the ability
to securely finance its contract obligations. A transportation network composed of truck, rail, barge and pipeline movements provide Naughton
Energy with access to all regions of the country. We maintain a fleet of
tank wagon fuel delivery trucks to deliver our fuel in a safe and timely
manner. Overall, we are the best option for our clients because of our
successful track record and customer service.
There are many ways to look at energy and the oil and gas industry. Oil
and gas provide the primary fuel for the daily energy requirements. The
sources of energy come from coal, nuclear and hydroelectric power,
renewables like wind, solar and tidal power, and biomass products such
as firewood. When focusing on fuel energy people think of how it keeps
us warm in cold weather and cool in hot weather, how we use it to cook
our food and heat our water, how we generate our electricity and power
our appliances and how it is used in building and construction.
As a DBE small company supplier, we have faced our past challenges
through divergent cultural and economic cycles. Throughout the years,
we have successfully remained innovative and resilient in our business
approach. We take pride in our work and as a safety oriented small DBE
supplier and have created jobs by working well with our partners on
multi-million-dollar bridge, airport and road construction projects, as well
as, special event projects such as the United States Tennis Association
US OPEN. We deliver our products on budget and on time enhancing
our company’s reputation.
