Awards Committee

Improve staff engagement and job satisfaction through highlighting fellow employees with appreciation.

Ruffy High Fiving you

Recognize a peer for going above and beyond the call of duty!

When you fill out the form a certificate of gratitude sent to the person and their name is listed on the website for a long time! It only takes a moment, and a simple "I appreciate you" is usually enough to brighten someone's day.
