We appreciate our employees and always look for BIG and small ways to say thanks. In a recent company-wide contest, Chris Roque, Killarney local Swine Tech, was awarded a XLarge Big Green Egg Smoker.

Surrounded by coworkers and friends, Chris was shocked to find out he had won the grand prize.


“I didn’t expect to win. I feel blessed that HyLife took the time to surprise me with the green egg. I am honoured being part of HyLife.”
– Chris Roque, Killarney local Swine Tech

Our Big Green Egg contest was rolled out via an internal communications tool, that keeps our workforce informed, builds community across locations, and allows us to host contests for all employees. Once the winner was selected, we pulled out all the stops to ensure the announcement was one for the books.

Cori Bridgeman, Killarney HR generalist, went above and beyond to make this day a day to remember for Chris and his coworkers.


“I was honoured to be part of Chris’ surprise. HyLife made this day all about Chris and his teammates. Coming from a large corporation, I felt like I was just a number. Since being with this company, I feel like part of a community. They take pride in their employees in many different ways.”
– Cori Bridgeman, Killarney HR generalist

We are committed to showing our team we value all the hard work and dedication. We host contests, offer professional development opportunities and give back to the communities where we work and play.

Congratulations, Chris!
