Employee Recognition

"Shout Outs" for May 2018

Throughout the month of May, we received 24 “Shout Outs” recognizing co-workers for going above and beyond, or making an extra effort regarding customer service, teamwork, positive attitude, creativity, extra effort, superior performance, etc.  It’s an easy way to recognize fellow co-workers whose efforts may go unnoticed and help build employee morale by providing legitimate positive feedback to each other!

This month’s six winners are:  Bob Serpa, Kevin Falco, Rebecca Wilk, Sherri Campbell, Kat Kyp, and Derrick Densmore.

Congratulations to all of the winners! You will all receive a $25.00 gift card. Please stop by HR to sign for your gift card. Supervisors, please let your employees know to stop by HR to sign for their gift cards.
