It’s that time again! I’m super excited to reveal our 2018 First Quarter WOW Champs. But first, what is a WOW Champ?
Every quarter, managers choose five people to be our WOW Champs. Their peers nominate these people for best representing one of our five core values. Once the nominations are all gathered up, managers meet to discuss who best embodies each value. Then at our company meeting, Chuck says a few words about each person and how they exemplified that value.
You may be wondering, “Why do you guys do this?”
Only quarterly WOW Champs are eligible to become a Value Champ, so being a WOW Champ is one step closer to that goal. It allows us to recognize our employees throughout the year, and it helps them stay engaged with their work.
I really love how excited we all get for the winners. We clap, cheer, scream, and shout for each winner. It shows how much we appreciate them. I also love the fact that we nominate our peers. While an award from a manager or c-suite is always really cool, it feels more special when you know your coworkers think you deserve an award too.
Our WOW Champs represent one of our five core values, so here’s a quick refresher on our values and what they mean to us:
- Integrity: “We do what we say we will do.”
- Quality: “We have the unyielding persistence to improve.”
- Respect: “We treat people the way we want to be treated.”
- Commitment: “We are dedicated to the ongoing viability of the company.”
- Passion: “We have the burning desire to achieve in all we do.”
So without further ado, I’m happy to announce our 2018 First Quarter WOW Champs!
Drum roll please…
