Sieda Community Action has presented four staff- members with the Sargent Shriver Excellence of Service Award. The Sargent Shriver Awards recognize positive behaviors that support the achievement of the agency’s mission, vision, and values and help create a culture of mutual respect and recognition for employees at all levels. There are two separate award categories; the employee of the year award and supervisor of the year award.
In addition, candidates for both the employee and supervisor award are nominated by any member of the agency. Then selected by a committee of employees.
First, the Employee of the Year awards were given to Donna, Dianna, and Matt at the Sieda February All-Staff meeting. The Employee of the Year award honors three individual employees who have no staff reporting to them, such as teachers, receptionists, home visitation specialists, energy auditors, etc.
Second, the Supervisor of the Year was presented to Ashley Brink, who was not present that day, due to illness. The Supervisor Award honors one supervisor who has one or more staff members report directly to them and is in a leadership position within the organization.
The 2019 Shriver Award winners are presented below.
