Co-Worker Recognition Campaign Launches (5 Day Event)

Share your thanks and appreciation for your fellow staff members – including peers and leaders – in Bright People, Brilliant Solutions. Include photos to make your recognition even more meaningful. For every post you create, you earn one entry into the daily random drawing for one of three $25.00 Amazon e-cards. Each daily drawing is held from all posts from that day only, so the drawing is from all posts received on a single day only. Post daily and often for more chances to win. A staff member can only win one e-card per day. We want to make sure we spread the fun around.
